Those programs you are using take performance too. Because they have to use RAM too, your system won't increase in speed if you have 256 or less. because the bad stuff takes sumtin like 200MB ram, but the Norton and other stuff too. (norton is known to eat up 3 gigs of memory when left alone while Screensaver is active....)

I have yet to see a home system with 3GIGS of Ram installed.. Come on now.. Get realistic yezpahr.. As for the "bad stuff" taking up 200megs of ram, how do you know what is on their system and what it is using??

Howdy andrems:

Could you post your system specs here??

In the meantime, you could be infected with malware which would drastically reduce your systems performance!!

Go to the Malware Forum and follow all their steps.. Once that is done, post an HJT log in that forum for one of the guru's there to take a look at!!
