    I have been having problems lately with getting an error when i open Photoshop "could not import the clipboard because there is not enough ram". Well, I started getting this after i installed norton's Internet Security 2004 and systemWorks 2004. I dont use all the systemworks applications; I did a custom install and only put in Utilities and password Mgr.

    When i go to my task manager i see a bunch of processes running which may be related to Norton..are they? Is this using too much memory? I have 512mb of RAM. here are some of the processes that i am not sure about:

    svchost.exe (there are 5 of them running! Why 5???)
    symlcsvc.exe
    wmiprvse.exe
    sndSrvc.exe
    smss.exe
    savscan.exe
    qttask.exe
    nvsvc32.exe
    nprotect.exe
    nopdb.exe
    navapsvc.exe
    csrss.exe
    cdac11ba.exe
    ccapp.exe
    ccevtmgr.exe
    alg.exe

    And can you believe that i have photoshop set to use 100% of the available RAM but it still gives me this error! Something changed with the norton install. does anyone else use Norton systemworks/internet security and does it also hog all of your memory?
