There you go harking on Norton again... yeah.. we already know what you think of Norton. Read his system specs again... do you seriously think that with a full gig of ram that ANY ONE particular pre-installed software could cause these symptoms? Somehow I doubt it.

Also last I saw on Dell's website, they have started offering a 6-mo promo of McAffee rather than Norton.
