Specs: windows vista, amd athlon 64X2 dual core processor 3 gb mem 250 gb hdd
Norton issues a performance alert telling me that over 90% of a part of a CPU is used up on a file e.g. chrome.exe and one with wer as a prefix --- all else is reported as good and normal and it doesn't tell me to do anything. Should I worry? I recently had my memory 'stolen' by a virus and it got a gfeneral repair and back up where possible. Do I worry? Staples charged a fortune and I bought Norton anti-virus progream.

Google chrome web browser is a demanding one but it depends on your processor. I use google chrome on my laptop which has an i5 and that will use anything from 2-12%.

It shouldn't be using that much end the process in task manager. restart your computer and then try again.

I'm not a fan of Chrome. If you read the privacy policy, you'll find you have no privacy. Some believe it's a huge spyware program & has ties to the NSA. Could be just conspiracy theorists & scare tatics, but there are enough other choices that I avoid this one.



A virus cannot "steal memory". That's like saying a virus can steal your keyboard. And Norton was not a good security choice, in fact, there's no reason to pay for anti-virus software when there are so many good freebies available. You can't return open software, but you may wanna consider the new free security program from Microsoft.
