NOD32 slowing my PC?

Do you have a question? Post it now! No Registration Necessary.  Now with pictures!

Threaded View
After reading various reviews and users recommendations, I purchased NOD32
for my PC.  The installation went fine and it seems to work really well.
However for some reason since installing it,. my PC seems to work really
slowly, especially when opening up new files, of browsing through my PC's
folders etc.

Being a bit of a PC newbie I can't figure out what the problem is, but it
definitely seems to have started just after I installed NOD32.

My PC specs are as follows:

Intel P4 2.6
1 gig RAM
SB Audigy 2 Soundcard
GForce 4 Ti4800 gfx card
Windows XP (SP2)

How much crap do you have running in the background?

AFAIK only ZoneAlarm Pro, K9 (email Spam filter), and Webroot SpySweeper.

Anytime. For a second I was afraid that Symatec acquired Nod32.

I have a ton of stuff running in the background with no speed
degradation  because NOD32 is running with them on this P3 700 MHz, 320
MB ram laptop.

I wonder if you have your Page File size not under the automatic control
of the XP O/S. With the introduction of NOD32 in the mix, the page file
  is too small and the machine is page trashing memory to the hard drive
slowing the machine down.
