    Fully uninstall "Norton crap" see HERE Replace it with Zone Alarm and AVG.

    Same goes for "AOL crap".

    Your PC will now run perfectly.

    EDIT :I beat howard,hee hee.

    Good god man, you`ve got some real crap running there.

    The biggest resource hog is Symantec/Norton crapware. My advice would be to get rid of it and use the free AVG or Avast antivirus programmes and one of the free Firewall programmes I linked to in your other thread.

    In addition to that, you have lots of stuff running that`s not really required.

    I suggest you use msconfig to stop anything you don`t want from starting at startup.

    Regards Howard :)
