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

https://www-secure.symantec.com/norton-support/jsp/help-solutions.jsp?lg=english&ct=united+states&docid=20080710133834EN&product=home&version=1&pvid=f-home

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.
