A anti virus that doesent make my computer slow as much?

I have a norton anti virus. It helps my computer a bit, but makes it very very slow, so is there any good (free) anti virus that works well but does not make my computer slow at the same time?

    You should get AVG Free Edition. To download this go to and click on download. This anti-virus program will not make your computer slow at all.

    The reason the computer gets slow is due to the registry files becoming corrupted, or messed up, in simple terms. These files tell the computer or laptop how to operate the software installed on the system. If any of these files get messed up, the computer is not sure what to do and this will really slow down the computer. The other scenario is where you download other software, screensavers, pictures, videos, or even music, and this will somehow change the settings on a registry file. When this happens, the original program that needs that file now has the wrong instructions in it. So, it will cause the computer to run slow, or in a worse case, crash.

    You can speed up your computer with a thorough analysis and repair of your registry. The registry Scan will identify corrupt files, paths,and registry keys causing your computer to have errors and run slow.Go to to download registry bot.It is the most advanced and comprehensive registry repair product on the market.It will speed up your computer and make windows startup faster. free download Registry Bot.

    I use and recommend AVG 8.
    Norton is bad. Get rid of it.
    As for speeding up your computer, you can try these steps, assuming that your hardware is alright.

    (1) Run a FULL anti-virus scan with a good virus scanner. Use the latest virus definitions file.

    (2) Run anti-spyware scans with Spybot S&D and Malwarebytes.

    (3) Ensure all Microsoft security updates are applied.

    (4) Run diskcleanup to delete old temp files and other junk

    (5) Run a thorough disk defrag. Use a good defragmenter for this, and also run a boot-time defrag to fix the MFT and page file if they are fragmented. You can check out Diskeeper 2009, which is widely acknowledged to be the best defragger around. Their website has free 30-day trial versions.

    (6) Disable unnecessary background processes and services that take up memory.

    (7) Make sure all the hardware components have the latest and most stable drivers. Video card performance in particular is strongly dependent on drivers.

    Good Luck!

    Try MS Security Essentials. It doesn’t take up a lot of resources and works quietly in the background. It’s a free download from this website:
