Try running Disk Utility, Repair Disk Permission then restart your Mac once complete. 

  • Choose Go > Utilities.

  • Double-click Disk Utility.

  • Select the volume in the left pane for which you want to repair permissions. (Macintosh HD) 

  • Click the First Aid tab.

  • Repair Disk Permission

(Additional) - Check also if you do have another security program installed in your Mac (Avast,Avira,Bitdefender,F-Secure,Intego,Kasperskey,McAfee,Panda,Sophos,TrendMicro,Webroot  etc.)

Hi Sonia1

Are you still facing issues with Norton Security 5 deluxe?



Re: Norton headache,I see BIG RED X.

Uninstall, and then if really desperate to have Norton on your Mac reinstall it... that was the only way I found to get round the issue
