CPU usage high when idle
Is anyone else noticing high cpu usage for NIS 2009 when your computer goes idle? when i turn the computer on and come back to it later, my vista bubbles screensaver is very slow to respond and then norton shows that the cpu is running very high. the computer is very unresponsive and the only way to fix this is to reboot. i've noticed that when i turn the idle scan time to 30min. that it helps, as i can walk away from the computer longer and come back within 30min. and the computer is fine. so i'm thinking that the problem starts when norton or the computer goes to idle. i've attached some pics that show the high cpu usage begins at idle. i have the auto-protect set for early load as well. any help would be awesome..... thanks, d
fyi-i'm running pentium 4ht with 2gb ram, vista home premium sp1; tried using norton chat support...they deleted temp files, asked me to do a cleanup and defrag, uninstalled/reinstalled....these haven't worked; in the past i also got the error message "issue 8920, 200" but after uninstall/reinstall this seems to have stopped for now.
