Norton Security Memory Usage Difference
I recently bought a Surface Pro 6 and wanted to download security on it because I'll be using it on the go a lot. I do use Norton on my computer at home, so I trust it and put it on my surface.
My Surface Pro 6 only have 8GB of RAM so I'm trying to monitor how much memory is being used because it's limit of RAM.
Keep in mind that this is 100% stock, no adjustment to any setting just download and install on both my computer and my surface. They both were not running scans and both were not idle when I checked the Memory usage (because I know Norton has background running stuff it does when it's idle).
On my computer, Norton is using just about 30-50 MB of Memory.
On my Surface 6, Norton is using just about 300 MB of Memory.
What could be causing the problem? or is there something I don't know?
But for now, I am going to keep Norton off my Surface til I figure out what the issue is. I would really appreciate any information to help with this because I am totally confused about this.
