You can install MSE any time that you wish. It will use fewer resources than Norton.

It's ok. I will do it.
But, I already put a program to run. It will take some days to finish. Because of strict deadline of my research I want to wait until finish it.
After I get the results of my running program I will do it and let you know the details.
Sorry for my late and thank you very much for replying me.

No! Don't install Norton. And don't install MSE. Get something better.

What antivirus app would you suggest when troubleshooting?

What's the Best Anti-virus?

I do agree with UsernameIssues.
I also recommend using Microsoft Security Essentials when needed for troubleshooting Microsoft Windows 7.
Microsoft plays well with Microsoft.
When the problems are solved one can choose what ever anti virus program they so desire and see if the problems return.
I call that troubleshooting/testing.

If Norton is the problem I'm sure Praveen from Norton's will be glad to help.

The best way to fix Norton is to uninstall it!

Sorry for the late reply.
I installed Norton again. Then it gave same problem as previous.
After 3 1/2 hours (nearly) of idle time it gave blue screen and automatically restarted the computer. Then this restarting is happened several times again and again.
Now I uninstalled the Norton and installed another anti virus software. Now computer is ok.
I posted these information to further help for other users.
Thank you.
