My browsers freeze when I click on links and my programs freeze up if I click options. I do not have spyware or trojans or viruses and I thin I know what I need. I have five terabytes on my computer's hard drive and only 8 gbs of RAM. Do I need to replace the RAM. Is it expensive?
Oh shoot! I just bought 16 GBs RAM! I defragmented just this week. ALL the drives. It took all day. I will say that when I added the three terabytes of drives on the computer it plunged to a crawl. The system resources say it is at 26% and Windows System, Norton, anything take all the power. C Drive I keep basically empty so I do not understand. It is frustrating. However, I thought I should balance the amount of drives with RAM a bit more. My computer store said that eight was just adequate for three TBs and now I have six not five, sorry. What do you think?
Well the ram has nothing to do with storage space (salesmen)! Ram is for running processes, programs and applications. I see Norton in your post it is a known system hog. Please list all your system specs and drive inclusive of raid setups.
Well, I did know vaguely about RAM but I have a huge lot of programs and applications I use. You are so right about Norton!
I am afraid I do not know how to list the information or where it is.
However, I ended up panicking and taking the computer in (and having them hold the check)(nice guys) anyhow, a program was installed in a drive other than C drive and there were other strange things.
It is working nicely and I backed up with Acronis to get a good shot of the system. Maybe, I can use that to send you a log?
Sorry I am exhausted and have a migraine.
Here is the sad tale: I also run Malwarebytes as Norton does let things through. I had bought Acronis and it trashed everything. Lost a hard drive too. I still feel paranoid about the computer. I cleaned it up and removed excess programs that might clash with each other. I took the computer in and they worked on in for a very long time. Nice guys, honest and smart. They had the devil of a time removing Acronis. I did a clean uninstall and it wouldn't go. They had to go through the system and find where it hid. Still, lost my hard drive. Nasty.
Thanks! I need a powerful one as I do a lot with my computer. I also have a security suite with firewall and anti-virus mixed. It is a pain. Sucks up the resources too!
I liked Avast and used it when I used Sygate.
