    A question ... How many actual anti virus "real time " monitors have you got active ?

    Some times it helps to run a complete scan disk and defrag after deleting a few programmes and before setting up a new one. ( It may help)

    I suspect 3 anti virus programmes may be a little much for your system , especially as you also have a anti trojan .(are you expecting trouble ? )

    Subtram - running several AV programs may create a conflict if all of them are running at the same time. To successfully have more than one AV on your system, only one must be running and others are resident backups & run on command only. Question: Why would you want so many AV programs in the first place? If you have your security settings in your browser as well as your mail set properly, one AV will suffice. Works well for me.

    NAV is a guzzler on resources ... can your computer handle it along with other stuff you have loaded? If not, this may be the cause of a slowdown also. But as suggested, doing a disk scan and then defrag will most definitely speed up your computer.

    Yes definitely only have one "real time monitor " running .
    System maintenance done weekly is a sound idea . I would suggest you run a scan disk ( set to thorough ) and a defrag . Although this will take a while its needful . Then set your scan disk to "standard " and maybe weekly run a scan disk and defrag . It will nottake long as you will be tidy and up to date . You could dedicate that hour also to updating all security software ie adaware / spybot search and destroy / spyware blaster/ TDS3/ both anti virus s . And run a complete full scan once a week of each of them .
    Keeping our systems tidy is a fine way of pc security and also keeps the system running better . Also clearing out the cookies and cache etc now and again.
    Just a few practices that are worth while . I usually dedicate and hour once a week for these things .

    Then see how things flow with your connection it may improve .

    My feeling is that its not needful to run a battleship online. Having one anti trojan and one good ( or 2 at the max) anti virus is good. There s a tendancy , and we all get caught up in it , to go bananas when we see all the " possible " risks and security solutions out there . We also can spend far more than we ever need . Commonsense and simplicity is a real good quality for each of us to cultivate online in this highly commercial and increasingly complicated and often perplexing world .

    I started to install nav 2002 once upon a time and I did what subratam did I stopped the install about in the middle. Well my comp started to act about like he explains I could not reinstall or use add remove as it had not completed enough install so I had to manually go in the registry and remove it that way. By the way this a big program and it took a while to dig all of the norton files out. I thought I had gotten it but Nooooo. I had to go back and remove all of the symantec entries. What a pain.I finally got it all out but I learned not to stop a symantec install before it is through. :(

    no... i am not... i installed the both and then made kerio not running keeping ZAP active... the hijack was done like that coz i wanted to give the clear picture.. i do know running two firewall is not a good option already :)
    anyway i think there's something wrong... i ran system mechanic defrag which after sometime said that low on memory resouces :doubt:... the windows defragmenter said i din need to defrag.... 32% fragementation exist... it says....
    whenever i am aaccessing internet through windows i cant continue for long o_O but in LINUX.. its fast as concorde...
