Norton Security Toolbar Slows Internet Browsers

Hi Everyone:

I seem to have a problem with the latest Norton Security Toolbar update. I use Google Chrome as my main browser. Seems like there was an update (NST) about a week ago and now my browsers are really slow. I also use Internet Explorier and it is also slow.

I can disable the Norton Security Toolbar in the Google Chrome exstentions and it speeds the loading of pages back up. I hate to not use (NST) as it really keeps me safe on my searches and internet browsing.

I am running Windows 7, NIS 21.5.0.19, 

Anyone else having this problem?

Thank you very much.

Re: Norton Security Toolbar Slows Internet Browsers

Hi, sOulbAit.  I'm not noticing any problems with Firefox or IE but I am using FF 30, and IE 10, because of some compatibilty problems.

Re Chrome, did you install the extensions as per this announcement ?

Rebooting after an update often helps, too.

Hi F4E:

Yes I did. I also uninstalled it and reinstalled as per your link. Still very slow. I can disable it in the exstentions and it really speeds up. Re-inable it and it totaly slows down. Not sure why,

Thanks for the recomendation. I keep trying figure out what is going on.

Have a super day. :)

You could try running the browsers in default mode without extensions, and progressively reintroduce the extensions, to see which ones might be causing the lag.

A nuisance I know, but sometimes the only way to troubleshoot slowdowns.

Re: Norton Security Toolbar Slows Internet Browsers

I updated to the new Google Chrome x64 yesterday and noticed the tool bar does not work with this new version. So I diabled the exstention. All works well with out the toolbar inabled. Will not be able to test anymore untill an updated is made to the toolbar for the new Chrome.

Thanks for all the help. :)
