  8. Hello TiborSK.
    From other replies, it appears that there may be more than one cause for this problem. In my case, it turned out to be Norton Internet Security. I had upgraded from Win 8.0 Pro to Win 8.1 Pro in mid-October, and then from NIS2013 to NIS2014 (version 21.1.0.18) on the same day. Everything seemed to work fine until earlier this week when Windows updates were released. I then experienced the extreme slow-downs described by others.

    After unsuccessfully trying several of the possible solutions recommended on a couple of forums, I encountered some Norton error messages. Eventually, I ended up uninstalling and reinstalling NIS2014, and now everything seems to be back to normal.

    Good luck!
