Restart the Computer entirely
Restarting the device can solve maximum problems. It is possible that certain programs were conflicting creating it difficult for the Antivirus to function. Restarting will solve this problem. Before doing this you can also try shutting down the software and restarting it.
Undo any recent changes to the computer system
In case you have performed any changes to either the hardware or the software of your computer in recent times, then you should consider turning them back to the original. These changes might be causing conflicts with the antivirus software. The latest versions of certain applications might have features that are not adaptable with the antivirus.
Also, check the recent changes that you made to the settings of your computer. It is possible that you have removed Norton Antivirus from default virus protection software.
Uninstalling and Reinstalling the Software
This can sometimes be the ultimate solution to any underlying problem which you are unable to discover. There might be some missing files or damaged files. Uninstalling the software entirely will remove the files completely and you download them afresh. After uninstalling the software, check for any remaining files pertaining to that software. For this check, your hard drive’s Program Files folder is located in the C drive. If you find any file pertaining to that software, delete that. Once you are sure that you have deleted every file pertaining to the affected software, you are ready to install that again.
Check for conflicting firewall protection software
This might be the case that you have another firewall protection software installed on your PC that is not allowing the Norton Antivirus to function in its way. To check if this is the issue you need to scroll through the applications installed on your computer to find any other antivirus or antimalware software installed on your PC. If you find any such software, you need to immediately uninstall that and make Norton Antivirus the default antivirus software.
DO check for any remaining files of that previous software. Ensure that there are no remaining files pertaining to that software.
Restart in Safe Mode
Safe Mode enables a problem-free environment to use applications and solve certain issues. Safe mode opens Windows in the default mode thus disabling any customized settings done in the normal window.
Windows allows its users to enter safe mode by pressing F8 while the computer is booting up. Similarly, you need to press Shift Key while the computer is booting up in the case of Mac systems.
Now open the Norton Antivirus in software in safe mode. Try repeating the same procedure you were doing in the normal window and see if you encounter the same problem. Most probably you will not find the same problem. This proves that your operating system is probably the root cause behind the issue and not the software itself.
Performing Disk Defragmentation of your hard drive
If you find your system not performing efficiently and is quite slow in reacting to your commands, then you can enhance the speed of your computer by performing disk defragmentation of your hard drive. This will boost the overall efficiency of your system making it fast enough.
To perform disk defragmentation in Windows follow this procedure: Start → All Programs → Accessories → System Tools → Disk Defragmenter.
