You need an anti-virus on your system. If your removed Norton and did not replace it, then you need to do that right away. There are plenty of free alternatives available. (choose and install only one)
AVG Anti-Virus Free - AVG Anti-Virus Free User Manual
Avast - How to Install, Configure, and Use
AntiVir PersonalEdition Classic
Active Virus Shield (During the install, it is recommended to uncheck the "Security Toolbar" component) - How to Install, Configure, and Use

After installing, perform your scans in "SAFE MODE".

If your computer seems to be slow, read Slow Computer/Browser? Check here first; it may not be malware. There are reasons for slowness besides malware - i.e. disk fragmentation, disk errors, corrupt system files, too many startup programs, unnecessary services running, not enough RAM, dirty hardware components, etc. As your system gets older it becomes filled with more files/programs and has a natural tendency to slow down so cleaning and regular maintenance is essential.
