    I've recently installed the free version of Norton security on my TF300. It's good to have something to scan for malware, and it's great that Norton provides a free version. However, it seems that certain settings in Norton prevent the standard home page weather widget from updating.

    Specifically, if I enable regular runs of Norton Live Update, weather widget updates start failing. Turning off the scheduled update restores normal weather widget operation.

    I haven't used Norton for many years because I got fed up with it filling my PC with bloatware that thought in knew better than I did about how I should work. I went over to AVG and have had no real problems since on my PC.

    I would recommend that you delete Norton and try using AVG's version for Android, to see if that works better. I have it on my tf300 and it causes me no problems at all. Having said that I have ditched the standard weather widget that came with the tf300 and installed a combined clock and weather widget from HD widgets, which is much better
