How to prevent Norton pop up

At start up of my OS X a pop up appears from Norton for a sign up to ZIP Cloud. Does anyone know how I can get this off of my system?

Malwarebytes has a free scanner for OS X (it used to be an app called Adware Medic, it's not really like the PC version) that will remove ZipDrive malware. It's a good scanning app because it doesn't install anything or run constantly in the background using up resources--you just run it and let it remove the junk when you notice something wonky.

If you feel reasonably confident operating your Mac: look for the file ~/Library/LaunchAgents/com.jdibackup.ZipCloud.autostart.plist and remove it, then remove the ZipCloud application from your Applications folder.
