  1. Any help will be very much appreciated. My Dell Latitude is killin' me. It is a P4 / 512 Ram / 30g hard drive and should be running much faster.

    Many Thanks from Texas!!!!!

    No infections.
    Your problem is NORTON/SYMANTEC.
    Plenty of complaints all over the forums.

    Thanks

    Should I disable parts of Norton to enable my computer to run more smoothly?

    Get rid of it completely.
    Install the (free) AVG from www.grisoft.com and an also free firewall from either www.kerio.com or www.sygate.com or www.agnitum.com

    And then swear by everything that is sacred to you, NEVER EVER to touch another product from Norton/Symantec again.
    Your PC will thank you eternally with a much faster, smoother running.

    Wow!

    Thanks for the reply - hard to believe. Definately not what Norton/Symantec wants us to think - will do and will have a cold beer for you from the Christmas kegerator...

    Thanks!
