    Hi,
    Last week I bought HP notebook with 2.0 GHZ and 2GB RAM. But to my surprise
    it works lot slower than my old gateway which is 1.5 ghz and 1GB RAM.

    the only difference is old laptop has windows xp home and the new one has
    Vista home premium.

    Also, I tried to disable some startup programs and check how much memory
    consumption it shows after start-up (without starting any other programs) it
    shows in the performance tab that current memory utilization is about 1.2 GB
    out of 2GB whereas when I manually calculated the memory utilization total
    from the list of processes running it was actually 650MB.

    So, I am wondering where is the other 550MB getting utilized even though no
    processes are listed?????

    Any clue?????

    what virus program did they stick you with.

    sounds like probably norton.

    download the uninstaller from norton site.

    download either avg or avast.
    uninstall norton and install the other.

    special uninstaller is needed as norton does not uninstall itself properly.

    Configure a performance monitor log and check what is the bottleneck and
    killing the system performance.
