Slow and 100% processor useage

By mcartor ·
I have an IBM 300GL, 48M-RAM, 166 MHz running WIN98, loaded with Office 2000 and Norton 2000 AV. Why am I getting very slow response times on Start and 100% constant processor useage (according to System Monitor)?

Slow and 100% processor useage

More than likely the slow response is being caused by the programs you have loaded. Office 2000 and Norton 2000 are extremely memory hungry programs. Norton AV defaults to check every single file on your system. You might try going into the settingsof Norton AV and eliminating some of the files it checks. You can do this two ways. You can go into Autoprotect and select program files and documents only and you can go into exclusions and select certain files there as well. Also, make sure that the scan on startup is not turned on. The only solution for Office 2000 is to upgrade your RAM or Processor. I have had several compaints from people who have loaded it on older systems that it runs extremely slow and uses alot of RAM. Hope this helpls you out.
