Computer performance is much improved, thanks.
Another question: How do I stop Sonic Activation Module from starting up every time I boot? I go to Windows Task Manager and stop the task but I'm sure you know a better way.
And I hope you can answer this too: I installed Norton Internet Security but has to uninstall System Mechanic. Are they really mutually exclusive? Are the SM features available on Norton?
If the above process won't work, then you can do it using the SERVICES option. Here are the procedures:
Regarding the NIS (Norton Internet Security) and SM, they are entirely different software if you are referring to the System Mechanic Pro from Iolo software. But as you experienced, NIS requires that SM is removed since it will be in conflict with it since SM has the Iolo Antivirus while NIS has the Norton Antivirus software included. NIS prevents you from installing 2 antivirus software in your system that would definitely cause trouble so it really prompts you to remove SM first. And YES, some of the SM features are present in NIS as well.

I hope that helped.
