Norton Security high disk usage making computer unusable

I noticed a couple days ago that my computer was suddenly much slower in responding while I was using it.  I used the Control Panel on my computer (Win 8.1) to "free up disk space" and "defragment drives", but no improvement was achieved.  I didn't have a lot of time to look into it until today.

I again tried to free up space, then ran a defrag.  Everything I tried to do took forever.  Response time was measured in dozens of seconds, sometimes approaching minutes, for simple things like clicking a link, or clicking a field to enter text.

I finally opened Task Manager and I find that Norton Security is using the bulk of my disk resources, which are at 100%.  This has been the case for over 30 minutes now.

This has happened to me before and I don't recall that I ever found a solution, it just improved at some point.  Now it's back and I feel like I can't use my computer.  I walked away for a while, hoping Norton would complete whatever task it's supposedly doing, but I've made and drank my coffee, and made and eaten a late breakfast, answered all my texts, and here I sit still waiting.  Live Update has been run until no more updates are available.

Re: Norton Security high disk usage making computer unusable

Hello Fern

Welcome to the Norton Community Forum.

Have you disabled Fast Startup in your Windows power settings.

Please read this link for instructions.

Last Tuesday was Windows Update Day. Have you restarted your computer a few times so that everything gets settled in. Did all the Updates get installed successfully ? Norton does have to go over all the new files that were installed.

What is the condition of you  Hard Drive? Is it almost full?

Have a Nice Day and

Thanks.
