a google search would have fixed that
are you using wifi? if you are, is it secure? if yes, change your encryption key. norton could be actually helping you. i wont get into technicalities, but invalid certificates can be a sign of someone listening in on your network traffic.

Of course, there'* also the fact tha Norton is the single worst piece of software I've ever been the victim of...try AVG...that is, if you can figure out how to get rid of Norton. It took Dad almost a month before he gave up, backed everything up, and Format C'ed it...

it is horrible as far as memory usage, interface, and all that. but i've found the virus scanner itself to work as well as anything else..
But i second AVG Free and ZoneAlarm.
