Norton causes entry into Gmail field to be painfully slow
I'm running Win7, and in the Chrome browser, I go to Gmail and begin to type a new email message.
But after installing Norton Security, the computer is actually slower than my typing speed. This is of course unacceptable. Does anyone have a solution to this?
1. Yes, I'm sure it is Norton. (a) It wasn't a problem prior to installing Norton. (b) It was a repeated symptom, for over a month before I finally got fed up with it. (c) I have now uninstalled Norton, and it works fine once again.
2. Prior to uninstall, I tried turning off EVERY option that I could find within Norton. I disabled autoprotect. I disabled firewall. I disabled ALL the activities that Norton does on "idle". But it didn't help. (Or at least, it didn't help enough to remove the symptom. Hard to say if it helped a tiny bit or not.) However, as noted above, when I actually uninstalled Norton, then everything was fine again.
