High Disc Read/write and High Memory Useage

Hi!

I've noticed that I have been getting a lot of Performance Alerts for High Disc Read/Write as well as High memory usage. Most say they are "normal", but not all are. I copied to clipboard just one of the alerts and pasted below. I do not understand any of this, or what could be causing it.

Any thoughts or suggestions would be great. I have more that I can share if necessary, but I see that this is huge, so I'll not send too much unless necessary.

Thanks!

Hi @ac0127

It appears that your chrome browser was hammering your pc. I would suggest updating the browser (I believe the latest should be "57.0.2987") and keep monitoring the issue

Hello

Don't see anything in that, that refers to Norton. It looks like something that should be in Google Help perhaps,

Thanks.
