Ed made your point earlier and he was correct. So to you I will
simply say "Get Screwed!" Is that clear enough?
I purchased the PC in September of last year after a lightening
strike. I was already running McAfee on the damaged PC, so I very
deliberately uninstalled Norton because I knew McAfee was going to
require removal anyway. This morning, when I booted up, I had a brand
new Norton Icon on the desktop and a new entry in my start up menu. I
uninstalled both. Ten minutes later Norton was preparing to scan my
machine from a dialogue panel that had no minimize or close options.
I did, again, uninstall from another new start up menu entry and got
the application stopped.
I don't know if this new Norton intrusion has been lurking since I
uninstalled in September; or if it came into my PC recently. Either
way it was unwanted and non-professional. When I uninstalled it six
months ago that should have been a pretty clear indication that we
didn't need it.
Much like I didn't need your smart-assed, repetitive comment regarding
my writing ability. Now if that wasn't clear I can get more clear.

Good Grief guys. I wasn't even asking for help. I was simply

Two guys knocked my writing ability. I respect the first one and he
was correct. Twayne was clearly just jumping on - as he often does.
Why should I respect a copycat. Some of us contribute to these
newsgroups quickly and even remotely so our writing products might not
be up to the doctoral thesis standards.
Hell, from looking at his profile I'm not even sure Twayne owns a
house let alone improves it. I have tried to provide some halfway
useful input to this group and a couple of other similar newsgroups.
I shouldn't have brought this up in the first place.
Norton is not actually an anti-virus/anti-malware product anymore. It's
now it's its own virus and malware that is very difficult to get rid of
completely. It differs from other viruses and malware in that you have
to pay for it.
Use AVAST for anti-virus, and Malwarebytes for malware. AVAST is free
while Malwarebytes costs money for the version that is constantly
checking for threats (though the free version is fine too).
I remember my mother calling me when she was having a terrible time with
Norton. She wanted me to go over to the company headquarters which was
about three blocks from my house to talk to them. I had to gently
explain that there was almost certainly no Symantec employee in the U.S.
that could address her problem.
