Ya, Ill bet if you uninstall Norton for AVG youll see a huge increase in preformence.

May also want to scan with Spybot Search and Destroy: and Adware SE personnel.

Its not that hard!

First close norton in task bar then uninstall it from add/remove programs then download AVG, install it, update it. BAM

then you may want to use regseeker to remove whatever registry entires norton left behind.
