Help for a Rookie - Symantec/Norton has filled up my drive
My Symantec protection system has filled up my C: drive since October when I had to reconfig the computer.
When I go to: ACER(C:) - ProgramData - Symantec - Definitions - VirusDefs, the VirusDefs has 45.4GB of memory used to create a couple of hundred files with names mostly like 'tmp76f9.tmp, a several files with names like 20121211.009, and a few with names like BinHub. These files seem to range from 0 to 500MB and started on Oct 6, 2012 when I reformatted the computer.
I have an Acer with a total of about 65GB on the C Drive, which 45.4GB is now tied up in these files.
I found others having similar or same problems here (https://www-secure.symantec.com/connect/forums/rtv...), but there just seems to be no solution.
The version and catagory may not be right, but I had to enter something to get this message to you. As I said, I'm a rookie.
Is there a procedure that will fix this and if so, where is it?
