Click on what, try to type on what? What are you computer specifications? Is this a laptop? Desktop?

Do you have antivirus installed (a proper one)? What does your task manager say when it "freezes" (what programs are taking up your CPU cycles/usage)?

Hmm Ok.

Sounds like might have some virus/conflicting programs installed. You should download malwarebytes antimalware. Once installed - reboot into safe mode (keep pressing F8 after reboot and select safe mode) and run the program - this will clean out malware and some viruses.

What exact version of Norton do you have? If I were you I would try uninstalling it - and install Microsoft Security Essentials.
