there have been a few times where, even though i have turned it off, the sim freezes up, and i close it to find that norton decided it was time to run a scan. how can i preven that from happening? is there a way to make it never scan unless i tell it to? it has also happened to me in the middle of watching movies, and i hate that!

Forget Norton. I use Mozilla for all of my internet needs plus I removed Norton many years ago. Norton is so resource dependent it's not good to have in my option. I have been virus free for many years now. As long as you have Windows updates/ router/firewalls up, you should be good to go. I want squeeze as much resources out of my machine as possible.

Just my option.

Yes, but most of the time Windows Defender and the Firewall will not detect something attatched to an email...

I can't see any reason to use Norton if you are concerned about performance. I like AVG. It's free and it works well. You can also easily unload it if you want to. It has a POP mail scanner as well.

I had AVG and got rid of it because it won't protect against spyware, and I got tired of answering Vista's warning.

There is a new package that AVG came out with, Anti-virus program and ad-aware programs. It's worth a try.
