I have a question about Symantec risk history. There are several items in my risk history, some with Action of Reboot Processing - Reboot Required, Partial, or just Reboot Processing. What do these mean? Are they still in my system causing problems or not? If so, why can't Symantec fix them? Can they be deleted? Computer has been rebooted several times but status does not change.
I know my computer has something going on because some Web pages are VERY slow and processor will start whirring like it's working really hard. I have Antivirus ver. 10 with the most current updates.
Thank you.

Well I have not used anything from Symantec since about 2000, 2001... But I suppose those could mean programs that have been removed or quarantined, or are quarantined... If you know you are having problems, it might not be a bad idea to scan for spyware/malware/adware... Personally I like Adaware AE, for that...

Risk history is actually a log of detecting infection, quarantining, deleting or repairing it etc. and various steps involved like reboot.
