Alright, look, when the stupid background tasks repeatedly cause a lag (sometimes up to 5 minutes, sometimes causing a crash) when they *stop*, then you have to give us the option to DISABLE THE £$%£^"£ING THINGS.
It's simple: I do NOT want background tasks. I've turned as much off as I can, but I still catch the £$%£%ing program closing its little "Norton is running background garbage" when I come back to my computer. I never asked you (Norton) to do all of my higher brain functions (like remembering to run a scan) for me.
I will NOT be renewing my Norton subscription.
