While PC idles, Norton takes over and won't let me do anything else
Recently replaced XP w/NIS 2010 with full clean installation of Win 7 32 bit. I then re-installed Norton from DVD. Since about Thursday of last week, when I leave PC idling, Norton takes over. When I get back to PC I see the following message: "Norton Internet Security is currently performing background tasks", and basically stops me from doing anything.
I right click on desktop to get to Task Manager and I can see the little time circle but nothing happens. I reboot and then when it happens again I try ctrl-alt-del and I do get the screen that allows me to select Task Manager, but then nothing happens from then on. I can see the hard drive light is solidly on.
I checked my last update and it is version: 184.108.40.206. Yesterday, I followed the suggestions of downloading definitions to desktop as outlined under "My computer runs slowly after I install my Norton 2010 product for the first time" and in Settings, I had to turn ON the Early Load status indicator. I then ran Full Scan as instructed, rebooted and ran Full Scan again as instructed. BTW, I do not have any other security sfotware installed. At this stage, I don't know what else to do. I thank you in advance for any assistance you can provide.
