I know that its poorly translated, but i couldn't find the specs in english, so i translated myself.
It's running kind of slow, maybe because of norton (?).
Fallout 3 runs perfectly on it, as well as other computer games, but other programs like firefox/IE/explorer is running kinda slow.
Any help appreciated.

Try doing this to find the things that are slowing it down:

  • Open up Task Manager by right clicking on the Task Bar
  • Select the Processes tab
  • Select the View menu item
  • Select the Select colums menu item
  • Place a checkmark next to I/O Read and one next to I/O Other
  • Click OK to save the changes.
  • Expand the Task Manager window so you can see all the columns
  • Double click on the column header that says I/O Reads (this'll sort everything by that column) This is the most common reason (reads of the hard drive) for slowness - but isn't the only reason.
  • Then see what Image name is using the most I/O Reads
  • If you don't know what the image name is, let us know and we'll see if we can figure it out

If Norton is performing a scan (or sometimes on startup) it's numbers will be high - so it's best to let it settle down before trying this.

Also, if the I/O Reads column doesn't reveal the culprit(s), then check the other columns for numbers that greatly exceed the norm in that column.
