Installed anti-track. System meets specifications. Noticed hard drive just continued to run constantly for hours. Went into task manager, CPU was like 10%, memory was 50-60% and disk (in the processes tab) was like 20%. In the performance tab, drive was at 100% and barely budged. Again this went on for many hours (4-5 hours). Uninstalled and issue went away - the hard drive stops after awhile of no activity. Re-installed and same thing - 100% no breaks. Have done this 5-6 times, same result. System became much slower. Installed another anti-tracker and that brand works fine and hard drive behaves as usual. No system issues, just with Norton. Any ideas or is it just a system hog?

BTW, I should say there is a solution to this problem if you are using the chrome browser. Uninstall the Norton AntiTrack program and restart Chrome
