I've read through various points on the sight for running slow.
I have an Acer 5000 laptop, running windows XP, SP2.
I mentioned on another thread that after installing Norton anti-virus it's been running slow and i was getting an error message. I can't connect my personal laptop at work so this is from a work machine, but I have access to my laptop. (Here with me)
I've defragged the machine, cleaned up the disc and deleted any old programs. The laptop runs fine when started, so I ran a anti virus scan and Lavasoft Ad-were in safe mode and it picked up on various pieces. My friend at work is now as we speak running another spy ware/ad-ware program taht has picked up on various pits, but I have various processes in the task manager running under my username that i haven't started and Norton anti virus is not running at all.
Another small thing is I keep losing the battery icon from my taskbar and also a server busy/switch to error, but I can't find out what program this relates to, is this an indication of something else?
I think I've seen posts on here where people can upload a 'log' of what's going on etc.
What should I look at next? Should I completely uninstall norton even though it's cost me like £40.
I just need pointing in the right direction.
