Hi
I’ve only had this computer a few months and it’s running pretty slow now,
than it was when I first got it.

I read somewhere that if a process uses more than 2000 handles it’s eating
up too many resources – except svchost.exe which is alright.

I have symwsc.exe which is using 2704 handles. It suggests I may want to
consider terminating that process.

Can anyone tell me what exactly is symwsc.exe and can I delete/terminate it
safely and actually how would I do that ??

i have SymWSC.exe running: Mem Usage=1892K and Handles=281. I don't know much
about what 'handles' mean or do, but i thought i should try to help.
