Does Norton slow down my computer?

We know how frustrating it is when your computer slows down and simple tasks take forever. It is the perception of some users that their computer performance degrades after installing Norton. While there was some truth to this years ago, today's Norton does not slow your computer. We valued these comments and streamlined Norton software to assure you world-class protection without sacrificing performance. Independent tests now rank Norton as one of the lightest security products on the market. In fact, Norton recently received the highest performance score of all Internet Security Software companies in tests by PassMark Software.

Norton can also boost your computer speed with performance management tools that make everyday tasks go more quickly.
