Cop Car

I don't monitor CPU use, at all. Back in the 1980s-early 1990s, it was mildly interesting; but no longer. I'm sure that Norton is doing its thing in the background, but it doesn't bother telling me about it.
When we were on dial-up, I would turn Norton off if I had a big download to make from a trusted source - say, MS. With cable, everything zips along quickly enough that I don't bother.


AVG does that too. I had to go in and find the setting to turn off those warnings....

Were you to browse with Opera, your CPU & memory usages would be lower. Just sayin'


Ruth - don't know why I didn't think of that - I hit the settings and unchecked that part. Jeeze, I'm such a computer newbie at times, considering that I'm actually quite experienced and knowledgeable.


Stu - I've tried other browsers (Opera, Mozilla etc), but somehow the stuff I work with constantly doesn't seem to work right (or I'm not smart enough / don't take time, to configure them to work right). IE works fine, right out of the box for me most times. And, it's not that I have an issue with IE - it's Norton I have had the issue with.


Heh, its those little things that always trip you up. I do it all the time myself. Just had to reinstall AVG since I upgraded to Win7, and got one of those messages, and had to go find the setting to turn it off or I don't know that I'd have thought of it myself.
