Norton Internet Security Slows Performance of Mac
Since I installed Norton Security on my Mac the performance has been very slow, so slow I was thinking about upgrading. Significantly slower to book and open web pages, download e-mail. I have just uninstalled Norton Security and now the system is running at the original speed, quick and responsive. It's not a super powerful system but has always been fine for our needs, web browsing, e-mail and a bit of final cut pro and motion graphics. However, I am now running without any virus security on my system. System details are below,
Model Name: iMac
Model Identifier: iMac12,1
Processor Name: Intel Core i5
Processor Speed: 2.5 GHz
Number of Processors: 1
Total Number of Cores: 4
L2 Cache (per Core): 256 KB
L3 Cache: 6 MB
Memory: 12 GB
System Version: macOS 10.13.2 (17C88)
Kernel Version: Darwin 17.3.0
I have been running Norton security on my PC for many years without a problem but is a shame the Mac software is not as well developed. Please, can you let me know when you have an update the Norton Security software to address the poor performance? So I can re-install the product.
