Norton internet security + zonealarm problems

  1. Ok, I've installed ZoneAlarm, but then I found out something weird. In my Security Center, it says I have Norton Internet Security running as a firewall and antivirus, but I uninstalled that a month or two ago. It doesnt appear in add/remove programs, or in program files, and nothing shows up when I search my computer with 'Norton'. Any ideas?

    I also notice that having Zonealarm running caused me to be unable to access the internet. Once I turned off zonealarm internet was fine though. HOw do I solve this problem? Or does fixing the Norton Internet security problem fix this?

    Also, it may be because the computer is 4 years old and is losing stability, but startup is quiet slow (not slow due to viruses or spyware) and there is computer lag sometimes when running multiple programs (which was never a problem before). Any way to increase performance?

    Google for 'Remove Norton'

    If you still want Norton Utilities (as I did), you can add it back later.

    Running multiple firewalls (NIS + anyother) usually leads to grief.
