Ok, I am an avid gamer. Yes, with my crappy system, I do play a few games here and there, more preferably Ultima Online, and Counter-Strike. I have always been "wary" of Norton Auto protect. Will this in any way while being active, slow my computer down, slow me down?

no, it shouldn't slow your comp down unless you have ti set to auto scan every so often and you happen to have ti auto scan while you are playing a game, the only thing it will slighlty slow down is boot up since it has to load as windows loads

i also have nav 2k2 and nis 2k2 and i play Counter-Strike and they do not conflict with my gaming... although if i am gonna host a server, it asks for rights of course

Only thing Ive had happen is it will do a autoscan of the system.. thats real nasty especially in a fire fight!!

Finally learned to turn the darn thing off before any serious playing.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
