…In this movie, I explain about three security features for…your network that help you make settings for how your network makes connections.…The first setting is Network Cost Awareness.…Norton uses a certain amount of your connection's bandwidth to do the things it…does, like updating virus definitions.…Several of these functions are run in the background while you…do other things on your computer.…If you find that your internet connection seems slow,…one option is to set things up so that Norton uses less bandwidth.…To do this, first click on Settings in the Norton main window.…
Click the Network tab.…Then click Network Security Settings.…To the right of Network Cost Awareness, click Configure.…In the window that appears, click the Policy drop-down list.…To limit the amount of bandwidth Norton uses, your best setting is Economy.…If you select No Traffic,…you'll essentially be cutting Norton off from the internet,…which is like trying to use a microwave that's not plugged into the wall.…I recommend you don't use that setting.…
