Do you have both Anti-virus products installed? If so uninstall one of them. Running more than one antivirus is never a good idea. It may sound like good logic to boost your security but in reality it can cause slowdowns as they compete with each other monitoring and scanning the same files.
It was only norton when it was slow, i installed avira, because i heard good things about it and wanted a second opinion. Thanks for the advice though, I'll uninstall avira.

Ok, I'm currently doing that, thanks!
I actually payed for Norton, so I'm not sure if I want to remove it, but I'm removing Avira. What is MBAM? I'm currently installing Security Essentials, thanks!
