    Your Malwarebytes program is too old

    We are now up to V 1.41, and the Database is up to 3270

    You need to uninstall your old version then download the current version and then update it (it is found in the 8 Step Guide)

    Norton Internet Security has many startups and generally can slow systems down (debatable)
    When does your subsciption expire? If it is soon, I'd uninstall it then run the > Norton Removal Tool, then Restart

    If you do decide on removing Norton, you will need another Antivirus software
    I would suggest > Free Avira Antivirus (of which I use)
    Update it and run a full scan

    If you don't decide on using Free Avira, you will need to run > a free live Antivirus scan
