Ok, here is the deal.... Specs... Pentitum 4 2.8Ghz 1gig ram I had Norton on the machine. It ran ok with it on, but I know it is an old machine so I thought I would get rid of it. I uninstalled it, and now use McAfee anti V and webroot anti spyware. Now it seems to be running so much faster BUT sometimes all of a sudden it goes so slow! I mean really slow! I look on the Win task manager and it says that 99% of the prosessor is being used by a 'svchost.exe' program. It never used to happen before and I now want to throw it out of the fekkin window! Problem is I cant afford a new one yet. Suggestions please?
