It’s a nuclear bomb … there’s nowhere to run …

The add/remove panel is a good option for norton.
AVG can be had for free, and lots of others too, which don’t invade your subsystem & crash it regularly.

even norton know their software is so awful it needs a tool to remove it:

look for scheduled scanning in the settings someplace & uncheck the box.

but dump norton :iagree:


#7

Look under the antivirus tab, you should have something like “Scan for Viruses”. Click on “Task Schedule” and you can set it to scan however you want.


#8

Norton uses Windows task scheduler, you simply remove the task from the scheduler.


#9

Really, dump Norton and use the cleaner that mjwhitfield posted.

Free alternatives:
Avast

AntiVir

AVG
