    Howdy. I'm running Win 7 & every time I open Int. Ex. (even when absolutely nothing else is running) I get a flag from Norton saying "High Mem Usage by Int Ex". I was thinking of getting another mem stick but someone suggested I could divert more of the mem resources to Int Ex. They didn't know how, though;)
    Appreciate the help

    FWIW, I run AVG Int Sec 2013 & receive a similar msg.

    I'm running W7 Pro, 32 bit, with 4 GB of ram. I ignore the msg. I wold ddisable it, if I knew how, but I don't want to mess with AVG Int Sec's settings.

    Perhaps this is a trend in anti malware features.

    Just noticed macboatmaster also requested the info.

    How many sticks of ram? How many GB / stick?

    If applicable, please provide your computer's brand, model & model #.

    avg accelerator and game mode

    disable that function you may well find the message will not appear.

    and it is a gimmick in the first place as if it really could do what AVG claim it to do, it would be in extremely high demand - me thinks.

    so then AVG advisor reports
    AVG Advisor
    Responds to performance issues with recommendations on how to speed your browsing. Alerts you to apps that take a lot of bandwidth and memory giving you the option of shutting them down.

    which is all indicative of what is supposedly an anti-virus and protection system attempting to provide a computer management service program.

    It has IMHO never worked properly and NEVER will

    and
    it is, without doubt, but thankfully not in the anti-virus - protection programs that confine themselves to that, without all the so called performance enhancers.

    I think at the end of the day it is all a matter of opinion
