I have a HP Pavilion All-in-One PC. Recently it has been running real slow and just now while I was watching a Youtube video, the computer froze and made a loud beeping noise. It quit after about 10 seconde and resumed the video. Im currently running the newest version of Norton 360 security, do scans frequently, etc, but computer stills performs poorly. Any advice would be really appreciated

Id recommend getting another 2Gigs of RAM to see if that improves performance.

Id also think about upgrading your CPU as it barely meets the specs.
