    Hello, Im not sure if this is in the right category. but here we go. For about a week now strange notifications from Norton have started popping up stating that a certain program is using 100% of one CPU (i.e today it said Photo Frame was the culprit) also it said that a file or something was using 1,074,000 handles, which is INSANE! Im not sure about the program or file though :( So next time it pops up ill write it down.

    So, I am a little bit worried what is causing this all of a sudden, hopefully not a virus or something of that matter.

    Thanks,

    GhastlyGhoul:eek:
