Re: Computer running slow (donít think itís a virus)
Remove NORTON! It's worth a try at least. I did it, and my PC just got a lot faster. Well, I'll tell you what I actually did.
I was looking at the XP Tweaks, and I came upon an optimization that told me to disable all non-Microsoft services. I did that, rebooted, and it was BLAZINGLY fast, faster than ANYTHING I've seen in the past month. But, some of my programs couldn't function. So I checked back all the services, and it was laggy as usual. So then I look at the non-Microsoft services, and Norton takes up like 6 services. I just uninstalled it minutes ago, and I've never felt happier in my life.
Of course, if Norton is important to you, then by all means keep it. I'm just relating to my experience.
