Windows 7: Having some system trouble

Norton is an infection in itself. It takes control of your computer and throttles it.

Best to remove it - download and use Norton removal tool after uninstalling using Revo uninstaller.

Tell your folks Win7 has stable, built-in Parental Controls in Control panel.

I've tried to tell them that there's better software elsewhere, but they won't listen. I really don't like Norton and I really wish I could get rid of it. But my parents (well, my dad specifically) thinks that Norton has the best parental controls out there. Also, I don't want to sacrifice my Admin account for parental controls. Thanks anyways everyone, you're all a big help.
