it could very well be. The one way to find out, is to a un install, and go back, to before you did have it installed. Also, try doing a defrag, and see if that helps.

This is Mike from the Norton Support Team.

Assuming that you do not have any other third-party, real-time security applications installed along with Norton AV 2011, a slowdown can be an indication of either an infection or a problem with your installation of Norton AntiVirus. To resolve this issue please follow the instructions in the following document.
