While I agree Norton is a bit of a resource hog, you'd have to have a pretty terrible computer for Norton to affect the performance of a computer so much.

Seems like the free Norton subscription has expired and needs a new purchase to get it to work again if its not scanning anything. It could also be the fact that the software never had a scanning schedule configured.

I don't trust Norton, my dad told me that some viruses can bypass it's security.
I'm currently using Avira Free AV and it's really good app.

Every antivirus can scan your PC, I had Norton for a few months. Just keep using MalwareBytes.
