Hello Community,

This is my first post and quite frankly I am not sure this is the right places to start an introduction by here goes.

I know how to turn the computer on and off, understand Micorsoft Word and Exel a little and that is about it.

My PC is running Microsoft XP and just seems to take for ever to boot. Norton anti virus takes for ever get going. When I check the system CPU usage it is 90 to 100 percent for about 10 minutes. After this eternity I can get on line and check e-mail. In addition to Norton, I also run CC cleaner and Adawre.

Any thougts on where and how I begin to find out what is slowing me down so much.

Any and all help is much appreciated.

Lost in Space.
