  2. What messages are you receiving? Norton isn't a very friendly program
    especially with Windows Vista, but your description of problems doesn't seem
    to indicate that Norton is the problem.

    Why can't you run a lot of programs? What happens after you have 8 programs
    open? 9 open? 'n' open? Where do things go bad? You should be able to close
    programs exactly the way one always would. Click on the Close icon at the
    upper right.

    Download multiple files? Are these attachments to e-mail message?

    It doesn't show any messages, but when i have about 8 to 10 things running
    and i try to open anything else the program just won't open, or if i right
    click on an icon for a program nothing happens or shows up, or if i try to
    open any media player such as quicktime, media player classic, or nero
    showtime, the program won't open or will close as soon as they open

    Hi AngelM,

    Symantec's software is less than ideal for a home user. It bogs a system
    down so much that you wind up with a machine that secure because you are
    unable to use it any longer. Remove it, return it, and find another program
    that has a significantly lighter footprint such as AVG, Avast, or NOD32 -
    all of which work well with Vista.

    Mr. Arnold Guest

    You should get rid of Norton and find something that's light on the
    resources, like NOD32 or AVG.
