How do I stop the symantec security alert window from appearing every 1 min?

Every minute, this window pops up demanding attention.

Window title "Security Alert"
Yellow bar with symantec logo and the word "symantec."
Text:

"Your computer is at risk in the following areas:

-Virus protection is out of date

Open your Norton product to resolve these issues."

"Check box" and the text "To prevent duplicate seurity status alerts, use my existing Norton product alerts and turn off redundant windows Security Center alerts. (Recommended)"

Only option to click (besides the checkbox) is "OK"

I've already gone into the norton antivirus configurations settings to tell it to turn off alert for virus protection being out of date. I have tried checking and unchecking the alert window before pressing okay. The box keeps popping up again. I've restarted the computer as well.

Please help. As I type this, the window interrupts me and I have to click okay before I can resume typing.
