  1. Hi,

    I am starting to have a big problem with memory dumps and dont know why.
    Attached is some of my mini dumps. I cant read them, but here they are.
    My computer is even running very slow and locks up quite often. I have ran Norton and Spyware Dr. with no success of fixing the problem.
    Any help would be appreciated.

    have you only just bought norton because norton internet security hogs a lot of the systems and slows it down. if the subscription has expired i would suggest unistalling it using the norton removal tool and getting something like avg free edition or Avira Antivirus which are free as for getting rid of the viruses and malware download hitman pro that will pick up anything nasty on your computer, you can download it here http://www.surfright.nl/en it is free for 30 days to use let me know how the norton removal tool can be downloaded from here.http://us.norton.com/support/kb/web...b&selected_nav=&pvid=&docurl=20080828154508EN

    Hi Computerpete,

    I ran the Hitman pro and only found some tracking cookies.
    I also ran the free Advanced Registry Optimizer it says there was lots wrong. Is this worth getting? My Norton still has time left on the subscription so I did't delete it yet.
    Thanks again for your assistance!

    No do not get anything to do with registry changes just get ccleaner which is free once you have removed norton run ccleaner to scan the registry and temp files and all the other places on your computer.

    If you have any questions about ccleaner let me know.
