Re: High CPU usage alert

Hi pm8255

If you click on more details when the message slides out and wait for a Norton window to open.  On the left hand side of this window are options you can click on to allow you to investigate a little more.  Then repost if you like with an image of the details.

 

How to post an image in the Norton forum.  Please check that personal information is edited out this can be done using the paint programme see help and support from the start menu.

Re: High CPU usage alert

These alerts usually involve a CPQU or hard drive intensive process that is running and using a high amount of system resources.

 

There is usually nothing wrong with your system. It is just a way for you to track how your system in case you do have some problem. It is usually just for a short period of time.

forum.gif    I have a fairly adequate system, although now it's probably a fossil * lol *  , and i will occasionally see the "High Useage" popup message when I'm multi-tasking, particularly when I'm using one of my DVD burners. 

 

I've not seen it popup when I'm doing normal everyday surfing, with Outlook open and a few other apps open at the same time.

 

I thought about disabling the Norton popup but its appearance is brief and I like to be informed by the Norton popup's in the Tray.

 

Here's my PC specs:
