hello. it seems that my computers performance has dropped considerably the past few days. currently i am running windows 7 in the classic theme. the only thing running right now is Google chrome (web browser). Norton 360 stopped responding. task manager tells me that
my current cpu usage is at 0% and my memory usage is at 29%. i have 37 processes running the most resource intensive program (Google chrome) uses 55 MB of memory.

my spec's are as follows:

Make/Model: dell studio xps 7100

Installed memory: 6.0 GB ddr3

processor: amd phenom II x6 1075t running at 3.00 GHz

os: Microsoft Windows 7 ultimate SP1 64 bit

graphics card: ATI Radeon HD 5770

Hard Drive: 1TB Seagate Barracuda at 7200 rpm

Any help is appreciated.

If your cpu usage is 0 and memory usage is 29%, you're doing fine. Please describe the EXACT nature of the problem(s) you are experiencing.

Since Norton stopped responding it may be that it is the issue. Use norton remover


reboot and see if performance is better.

If ok, re install norton. If it acts up again, Get Microsoft security essentials.

I've seen 360 cause issues after certain updates.
