Normally when two program even if you don't see because they are running it background mode, your computer will freeze because the to program are accessing the memory address and overwriting when there is not enough.

Ok, the next step is to update the software by click the liveupdate tab, it should be some where once you open the Antivirus Norton Well After update all the latest definition.

once you have all the update definition of your Antivirus restart and boot up into Safe mode by pressing F8 and From there start your full scan I think this is a best way to do it because there is no program running and more resource you can have to run the program and even you can try defragment is faster.
