virus tech
After an update with Norton antivirus, it runs in the background, hogging nearly all of the CPU for about 10-15mins. While it's doing this I can't realisticly do anything as the PC is just so slow. Task manager does not allow you to change the priority of Nortans processes either, which is extremly annoying.
