Apparently my Norton Internet Security is set with a default option to have this icon for "High CPU Usage" pop up (randomly) but I have no idea what to do with the information. What does it mean to me if it shows, for example a 56% usage? This has just started in the last day or so.

Personally I would not worry about it unless you find that you are running into a sustained slowdown that you can't account for.
Consider turning off the notifications in Settings / Miscellaneious Settings if they bother you.

Thanks for your input. Actually, I have started noticing my computer being extremely slow in opening up the Internet or navitagint within the Internet. Having said that, is there some action I need to take in uninstalling some programs or deleting favorites, as examples? I haven't added anything recently to account for any added burden. I guess my question is whether it's something on my computer affecting it or is it relating directly to the Internet and why all of a sudden I'm experiencing this extreme slow down.
