High Memory usage by Java (TM) Platform SE binary
From time to time I receive a Norton alert for "High Memory usage by Java (TM) Platform binary", but whenever this happens I don't know exactly what is causing the problem and I can't figure out how I could have avoided this problem.
Does anyone have prior experience with this problem and could anyone give any help in trying to resolve the problem?
The problem usually occurs when I have several documents open at the same time, and sometimes in different applications, e.g., in Firefox 5.0, IE8, Open Office 3, Adobe Acrobat 9, etc. Whan it happens, I'm not sure which application(s) are contributing to the problem. Of course, Norton NIS 2011 is also running at the same time. I'm using Java 6 update 26
Any help would be appreciated.
