When your system is started icons often appear but the system is still loading. So can I suggest that to be sure you have a problem, do other things for 10 or 15 minutes after rebooting or just leave the machine alone. Now when you return to click on the Norton icon record how many seconds before the main interface menu appears please.

I think I'm going to revert back too.  I'm having the same kind of issues..a lot of people are: http://community.norton.com/t5/Norton-Internet-Security-Norton/Norton-Internet-Security-2012-stops-working/td-p/528136

It almost seems as if NIS has gone back to it's old ways of being a slow resource hog.. If that's the case...I won't be renewing.

Hi,

Sorry you are so unhappy. Part of the problem with the new version is that it hasn't done anything on your[collective you] system. So it's getting to know it and running scans, etc. It does take time and until it has completed all of its initial tasks it will be a resource hog. Once those tasks are complet it should run very nicely on most machines that have at least the minimum resources necessary for their operating system.

When you revert be sure to use the Removal Tool to clean out NIS2012. NIS2011 won't like some of the things that might be left behind. The tool is here:

Re: NIS2012 nahh.. back to NIS2011

I have no complaints thus far. It works beautifully on about 6 different systems of mine, plus another 6 relatives. The same applies to all the other versions in the past several years. I may or may not be among the lucky ones, but I've seen no bugs yet. The only issue I've had, which was easily resolved, was a small false positive. Overall, I'd say the usage and overall system performance actually improved a notch or two with NIS 2012, not the opposite. Just my experience, however.
