Something that I forgot to add. Lately I have been receiving alerts that ''Virtual Memory Low'', this never occured until the upgrade.
Approximately a week or so ago, I updated my Norton Internet Security 2006 and along with it I received Norton System Works Basic upgrade. After that upgrade I ugraded my Webroot Spysweeper. Since then, whether on the internet or offline everything runs so slow. I am running Windows XP and using Mozilla Firefox as my browser. I am using cable internet service and my connection speed is 100 Mbps.
When logging on what used to take 2-3 minutes for the start programs to load now takes sometimes 5 minutes. When I try to open up either my browser or an offline program it now takes a couple of minutes to load where as before it seemed to load in just a few seconds. Once I get my browser open when change from one site to another, again, I have to sit and wait. Also, when reading my Email in Outlook Express, when going from one email to another it takes sometimes up to a minute to switch. Also, in just writing this, it seems the computer freezes for a few seconds and no words are showing and then it unlocks and whatever words have been typed appear.
When surfing the internet, I usually leave Outlook Express open and something I noticed was the hour glass popping up quite frequently, so I turned off my anti-spam and that helped a little but not to much.
Any help would be appreciated.
