Have you got important docs etc backed up? You may have no choice but to reinstall Windows and use a better AV than Norton!

Are you by any chance running two antivirus programs on your pc?

What other antivirus program (besides Norton) and security programs have you got installed?

Note: if you run two antivirus programs in real time they will conflict with each other and cause the symptoms that you have.

and as previously suggested, advise you to change your username. Not a good idea to use your email address.
