I have a very basic understanding of computers and I write to seek assistance from other members here please.
Recently my PC has started to run quite slow; from windows loading to my internet browser having considerable 'lag' when starting - often 90 seconds before it becomes responsive.
I have Norton Internet Security installed and all virus scans suggest the PC is healthy.
I did first install Norton only a few weeks prior to my PC's drop in performance. I wonder if this may be the cause?
Running windows 7, an internet search for help has suggested turning off various 'additional features and extensions' that are related to the desktop's appearance; however this has not improved the PC's performance.
I have also run a program called 'Norton Power Eraser', which seems to have had no impact on improving the PC's speed.
Short of un-installing Norton to see if that program is causing the problems, is there any other options or programs I should try first to help try and recover some speed back to my computer?
