Can someone tell me what a NORMAL activity monitor would look like? Is it normal to have an activity taking 40 threads? How do I know if what I'm seeing is standard or indicates a problem? My computer has been unusable for over a month with a spinning wheel i finally got onto the net and have downloaded a couple programs to use to hopefully help speed it up because its slower than slow, you could go to sleep waiting for stuff to load and change. Anyway I don't know enough about Activity Monitor to judge the results or how to tell if some of it is what's making the computer so slow? Thanks.
