:confused: Hello Geeks.
I am having a hard time understanding and resolving a high CPU problem almost every time I use Internet Explorer 8 on Windows XP. Especially when using websites that allow video watching (e.g. mtv.com). They won't even load before my Norton alerts me of high CPU. Does Norton antivirus remove malware as well or do I need to download something else. Please help!

You need to provide information about your computer, this includes is it a laptop or desktop, is it a custom build or brand name such as Dell or HP, if it is provide the model name or series number (not serial) providing these details will enable others to better assist you.

Norton AV is very good but it is also very demanding on system resources, provide the requested details so we can advise you accordingly.
