My old P3-450 chugs along with NOD32, SpySweeper, TrojanHunter, and Sygate Pro firewall. But if I disable DMON and EMON it does better. I have MS Office and Outlook installed. I use the Outlook calendar only, and only use Word, Excel, and Access to create doc's. Not networked, and only use Outlook Express. Is there any reason to run DMON and EMON when they are not used?
