Norton is the most horrendously bloated POS on the planet. McAfee is a close 2nd. When my wife was still working for Verizon, her home computer had to have Norton on it, or she wouldn't be allowed to connect remotely to their system. It took her machine (XP, at the time) a good 20-30 minutes from "power on" until the desktop was usable. When she retired, I ripped Norton off and installed AVG. The boot time to usable desktop dropped to 5 minutes, tops. Norton will never, ever get anywhere near any computer here.
