Moving to General Software.

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.
/edit

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:

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.

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

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

Free alternatives:
Avast

AntiVir

AVG

Sounds like a plan :clap:
