I used to use Norton (before I saw sense!) many moons ago and had the same issue.
Norton's products are vastly superior to their earlier incarnations. Now it makes sense to use one of their virus products, rather than to avoid them, unless one prefers to pay ZERO for a virus program and go with Avast or other freebie. Your failure to recognize the current versions of Norton A/V products for their superiority over earlier versions leads to comments of ignorance such as you just uttered. Don't believe me? Go do your research.
Don't you think that's a bit harsh? I was only referring to the older version I had used. I never said anything about the new versions that they may have improved.

I remember very early Norton editions being fine to use (little resources required). Then Norton got big, bloated, and resource heavy. Stopped using and went to Avast. So I am curious as to how Norton is now. I still wouldn't go back though. Avast is just as good, if not better.

Your indictment of all things Norton was "harsh". LOL! Tacit in your comments was the "fact" that you had seen the light and had moved (smartly) away from using their products. Now I ask YOU--is that not harsh and misinformed?

Yes, I admit that it did look like that, my apologies. I'll re-phrase it and say that I used to use Norton (2001) and I wasn't fond of that version at the time. I have since not tried any newer versions.

no problem. Product quality morphs up/down over time with many products. Take Maytag as an example. They were once known for making excellent washers. For quite a while now, their washers have been vastly inferior products to their early units. Seems they have given a new meaning to the term "resting on one's laurels".
