whilst working this morning I noticed that my laptop was getting slow and after a lock up I looked to see what was happening in task manager. for some reason there were 46 processes running. I've got 512MB ram but I was down to less than 100 free. ccProxy was using 120Mb...? What does ccProxy do ? and why does it use co much memory? any help would be appreciated

I would not uninstall it yet. Try disabeling it first, you may need it for your Internet connection.

Go to Start/Run and type in msconfig from here click the Startup tab, if it is in the list take the tick out. Run your computer accessing the Internet as normal for a time to see if disabeling it has caused any problems. If not then just leave it as it is.

And remove other programs you do not need to run at start

recap....just tried what you suggested...msconfig...ccApp.exe was only thing there that had cc.....only problem was that when I unticked it and restarted....Norton Internet security was disabled & ccProxy wasn't in task manager...but....could only get firewall and anti-virus back by going into msconfig and ticking ccApp.exe again ...just checked task manager and looks like ccProxy again using 115MB of memory
Any more thoughts? other than getting a bucketfull of memory
