    Windows 10 compatibility with Norton products

    It will work, except with Edge, but Norton slows down computer quite a bit.

    Really ??? I've been running Nortons on 2 computers for years, I have not seen any slow down.

    That really depends on the computer, but as for laptops, it is an obvious burden.
    Last time I speed up a laptop, by simply uninstalling Norton, it took 30 minutes.

    Did you use the Norton uninstall tool to remove Nortons?? Takes me about 3 mins ....if I'm doing a clean install, or just wanting to refresh my Nortons.

    Some computers can not handle the heat and since the OP has 1,5 GHz, Norton is the last AV I would choose.
    Then again, if it is working for him, it is fine, except Edge of course, but I always keep performance in mind.

    Well guess lap tops are quite different, then. I've never cared for them myself. Personal choice. But I can run Nortons on any Desktop computer I've ever owned. One computer is 9 years old, came with Vista, now runs Windows 10 Pro with Norton 360 Premier with no problems, or slow downs.
