    Hey, I was wondering how to fix a sluggish pc. Any help out there would be greatly appreciated. I started having problems after my upgrade to Norton 360 and my nephew's downloaded game Disney's Tootown. Help!

    You can try system restore, provided you have a restore point set before the upgrade to Norton. Defragmenting your drive if needed, might speed up your system. Downloading games might open doors to spyware which slowdown systems so scanning and cleaning with SuperAntiSpyware or any other reputable scanner could also improve your computer speed...

    Well, in order to provide any level of informed guidance on what to do, one really needs to know "where you are". What OS, RAM, free HDD space, is the HDD heavily fragmented, and so on. In other words...., details.
