Norton Internet security sucks

Norton  Security destroys browsing internet when using Newsbin Pro.My mouse cursor freezes and sometimes completely disappear.also very slow downloadspeeds Already have assistance from two Norton employees with help on distance but nothing helps.No viruses present.Now Norton 360 removed and all the problems are gone.Using now only Windows defender with Malwarebytes on windows 10 pro.It seems that Norton can handle fast/heavy traffic: 650mb/s(speed)

Re: Norton Internet security sucks

As you had the new Norton 360 product, had you enabled and started the VPN feature? That can reduce internet speeds due to the overhead of encrypting and decrypting all data as it leaves and returns to your computer.

And some web sites can detect the use of a VPN and block or restrict usage on their sites. This would not be a Norton problem.

Things happen. Export/Backup your Norton Password Manager data.

FWIW!! Have you given thought that Newsbin Pro is actually multi-threaded news robot which will trigger a higher level of analytic scanning within your browser? What browser are you using? When you installed Norton did you check for fast startup being enabled before the install? I run gigabit FIOS and under the Norton Core router, don't have any of the issues you described with N360 deluxe w/VPN.

 With or without using VPN no difference.I'm using standard Firefox as browser but also tried other browsers.

VPN makes the downloads slower but disabled it has no positive effect on using Newsbin Pro

Anti-virus Scanner slowing things down.
If your Anti-virus software has the feature of monitoring email, it may be monitoring Usenet traffic, too. Either configure your AV software to ignore Usenet (default port 119) or, run Newsbin on an Alternate Port if your news server supports it.
