BUG-Norton Security 22.10 degrades system performance
Ever since I updated to 22.10, I have noticed a severe issue regarding performance. After installing the update, everything is fine for a few hours but then all hell breaks loose. Windows becomes very slow to respond and opening IE results in a IE window that is frozen and windows explorer becomes very sluggish to navigate. The hard drive is thrashing and I have seen the Norton Security process with active disk usage as high as 60%+ with it writing 8 MB/s for 20 mins or longer. Opening the main Norton UI even takes about 5 or 10 mins and the disk thrashes when it does that as well. I have to do a hard reboot because Windows takes forever to restart and then everything is fine until Norton Security does its degradation after a few hours and this has happened on both of my desktop systems with Windows 10 Creators Update.
22.10 should be pulled quite honestly with all of these problems going on. Norton 22.9.4 had been running perfectly for me and I wish I could keep 22.9.4 installed without being auto updated to 22.10
