Norton AV sucks...memory hog and too expensive. Go with AVG Free or Avast Home Edition. I much prefer Avast.

As so many other people have said, this is too slow. Get AVG Free instead.

I had norton for years and it was always slow, even the newest ones for me have been slow. I much prefer Avast. and a lot of the time Norton never fixed the problem, I would have to download other free programs to fix it. So i do not recommend norton at all.

Personally, the latest versions are actually rather sppedy, eating mostly 0% of my overworked CPU when idle.

There is never a good excuse to not use an antivirus, regardless whether you are a 'pro' or not. (In fact, I might just consider you not a pro at all if you don't use one).

That said, you're better off with the top 3 of the antivirus software currently, and none of Norton and McAfee are in that list: Avira, Kaspersky, NOD32.

I used Avira Antivir Personal for a while, and now have paid for Premium because I thought it was good enough and it's saved me quite a few times. It does NOT drain your system resources and leaves you alone pretty much unless it has to act. The good antivirus software does exactly that, not bug you down to hell and beyond. I wish Norton and McAfee would stop being preinstalled and tricking poor unsuspecting customers into paying for them.
