I have Norton 2010 Internet Security that constantly alerts me of High CPU usage. When I am using Firefox, Goggle Earth, Disk Cleanup etc. This annoying message comes up. I have done some research on the subject and there are many answers. Could be a Virus, could be I need a Video Card, I need a new computer. A few months ago I was having the alert of low Virtual memory and I adjusted that by changing the page file allowance. Now is the CPU usage. I just want o make sure that I don't have a virus. I scan everyday with Norton. I have Malwarewbytes which I run o or once twice a week. I also have Spybot Search and Destroy that I also run once or twice a week. They don't find anything major.
I have a 6 year old Dell Dimension 2400 with and integrated Intel 3D AGP Video card. Pentium ® 4 CPU 2.66ghz. 80 GB Hard disk with 44.8 free space. 1 GB of Ram. Windows XP pack 3. With all the Microsoft updates. I do a Disk Cleanup and a Disk Difragment everyday after I am finished working in the computer.
Could you please give me some suggestions of what to do? I mainly use the computer for searching in the internet, ordering things etc. No gaming or anything major.
I would appreciate your help.
