Very slow screensaver & games

by chelelab / February 25, 2005 3:21 AM PST

Hi, For some reason my computer is acting crazy. My games (spider solitaire, solitaire) and my screen savers are running very slow. However every thing else seems ok. I scanned for a virus (none) and I defragmented but nothing has helped. I uninstalled my Norton 2004 and re-intalled the newest version 2005. My resources are around 71%. Can anyone tell what the problem is. I have tried everything I can think of but have not had any luck. Thanks!

What are you doing about Spyware?

Norton doesn't address SPYWARE.

I downloaded spybot last night and ran it. It only found 7 minor problems. It corrected all 7 problems but my things still ran slow.
