Extremely High CPU Usage Norton 360
My copy of Norton 360 downloaded through my Xfinity membership is constantly running at around 70% to 85 % of CPU usage according to my Windows 7 status monitor while scanning. I recently reviewed other threads and uninstalled Norton 360 using the uninstaller and then let the same uninstaller reinstall the program.
During normal non-scan usage Norton 360 seems to run at a constant 20-24% of CPU usage.
This seems to be the cause of my massive computer slowdown, and it commenced in the last few months.
I'm running out of ideas on how to fix this save for scrapping Norton and going with a competitor. Anyone else run into this?
My specs are Windows 7 Professional SP1
INtel Core i5-2500k
Thank you in advance for any advice save for uninstalling or reinstalling.
