Chrome very slow on "new tab" page
Ever since installing Norton Antivirus (2013), Chrome has been extremely slow navigating away from the default home page (the one with the 8 frequently used website thumbnails). It's OK when you first open Chrome because the Norton toolbar isn't showing. Once you've gone to a website and the toolbar has appeared, Chrome becomes very bogged down on the thumbnail page (which will now have the toolbar showing). If you're patient, it will eventually right itself but, more often than not, it's quicker to quit Chrome and restart it.
Is there a solution to this, other than making your home page an actual website?
