    my recommendations;

    1.- uninstall norton.
    it will speed up your machine like nothing on earth...

    2.- run malwarebytes.

    3.- run tdss killer from kaspersky.

    4.- get a mainstream free av and run that.

    5.- never pay for av again, it is all garbage..

    6.- install winpatrol, so that you get alerted
    if a new proggie tries a fast one in your startup.

    note that all the above are free.

    if you do all that, and get no alerts, you`re
    probably a-okay..

    just my 2 cents..

    You're going to be way ahead of the game by getting rid of everything that's Norton/Symantec and going with anything else. Just my two cents worth.

    The thing about Norton/Symantec is it's hard to get it off your system. You need to go to their website and get their uninstall tool to get rid of their junk. They also are resource hogs and have a huge footprint.

    You be far better off with Avast, Microsoft Security Essentials, MalwareBytes and etc.

    Here is the manual procedure I learned it from a friend: -

    1 Open command prompt. Go to Windows, then Run, and type "cmd" (run as administrator) . Press enter.

    2 Type "cd\" and press enter to get to the root directory of c:\ .

    3 Type "attrib -h -r -s autorun.inf" and press enter.

    4 Type "del autorun.inf" and press enter. (Use all commands without quote)

    5 Repeat the same process with other drives if you think its infected, type "d:" and do the same thing. then next "e:".and restart your computer.

    6 Restart your computer and it's done. Enjoy the freedom to open hard drives on a double click.
    hope this may help you.
    thanks,
