It's probably Norton tripping over its own feet....as it is prone to do.

Try uninstalling Norton completely.

See if you can now access your emails/web correctly.

If so either reinstall Norton and run all the updates again.....or, as I have done myself and many other forum members too try the many freeware alternatives available.

I'm currently running Avasr av and Sunbelt/Kerio firewall with no problems to date.

Try an on line scan

You can also download a cleaner from Trend or Sohos or similar and run via safe mode command prompt

You should not be trying to run two antivirus system together (norton and AVG) they will clash.

Uninstall NORTON and try the online scans
