My home PC's internet browsing has slowed down to a crawl the last couple of days, and this is with a cable modem. Apparently it's due to some problem in NIS 2002 - some process called SymProxySVC.exe is using about 100% of my CPU. I'm not sure why this started all of a sudden; I don't think we did any updates then. I searched the web for references to this process and others have reported it, but with no way to fix it aside from uninstalling NIS. There was a reference somewhere to a Symantec web page recommending that you change NIS and its subcomponents to load later on (from the startup menu rather than the registry) but that didn't have any effect. At this point, I think my best alternative would be to uninstall NIS 2002 and get the 2004 version, and hope that it doesn't have the problem. Has anyone out there had this problem and is there any way out? Do any NIS 2004 users have it?
