    Kitty i will back you up now:

    AVG = FREE, FAST, SECURE, REMOVES VIRUSES unlike norton on ocaasions

    NORTON = FREE (FOR 90 DAYS), SUBSCRIPTIONS, SLOW, ITS VIRUS REMOVAL IS CONFUSING, AND SOMETIMES WILL NOT REMOVE IT

    Consider getting Spybot Search and destroy and Adaware SE Personal

    Well Computer~freak~ there is a program that monitors fan speeds, and case/psu/cpu/hdd temps.

    The program is called Speedfan 4.31 >>>> http://www.almico.com/sfdownload.php


    But, there is always a but, But if your mobo supports the version of the program it will alow you to configure fan speeds, if you do not have the corect mobo, there is a nifty email facility on the program that enables you to email the program creator and he will send you the program, compatable with your mobo, letting you change fan speeds.

    Hope you get your problem sorted

    I definitely agree. Symantect/Norton is utter crap in my opinion. Not only does it slow your system down, but it`s not that good at killing viruses either. It can also be a pain in the rear to uninstall and has been known to cause serious system issues as well.

    However, whether it`s the source of your problem, remains to be seen. All I can say is it definitely won`t help.

    Regards Howard :)

    second that, AVG or AVAST is definitely better especially if you're home user. Lots of people here (incl. me and lots of my friends) remove norton and use either AVG or AVAST after knowing that it was just a piece of ****... :)
