Best solution: Don't use Norton Antivirus. It's a system resources hog plus it won't find half the viruses you throw at it.

Alternative solution: Use AVG Free Edition. Faster, updated more regularly and above all, it's free. Smiley

If your brother insists on using Norton, though, he may want to configure it correctly.

All the configuring in the world won't help Norton do it's job properly, so the best solution is to throw it away. Preferably as far as a huge cannon can fire it.

I can only echo Jee's statement about AVG Free Edition. It's pretty damn good and I can't fault it at all.
