Norton Security Performance Concerns
My question relates to Norton startup processing on a Windows 10 PC (all updates installed).
I have noticed that a PC restart (and to a lesser extent a normal start with FastBoot enabled) has become extremely resource-intensive (Disk & CPU) to the point that the machine is virtually unusable for 20-30 minutes. I have switched off pretty much everything (including auto-protect) but the Norton process still appears to be consuming resources at an alarming rate. Process Explorer currently reports I/O Read Bytes at 15.6 GB. Task Manager confirms resource utilisation.
Can anyone advise on a workable procedure to hane control back to me in a more timely fashion?
