I know it's an old PC but it performs well except that nis.exe keeps hogging my CPU. Investigating, I find that 2 copies of nis.exe are in a file named Finis in C:\hp\bin . What is Finis (I can't open it) and why should a HP file contain nis.exe. Is it a trojan? Help would be appreciated please.

As we have properly understood your issue please read this statement:
NIS.exe is a legitimate file. It is also known as Norton Internet Security and belongs to Symantec Security Technologies. It is commonly stored in C:\Program files.
And can you pleas ehelp us with the error message you are getting right now so that we can assist you better?

I don't have an error message. As I explained, I am trying to stop Norton from hogging my CPU, and a previous forum post concluded that a'virus posing as nis.exe could be the problem. I know perfectly well what nis.exe is. I just want to know if the presence of a copy of nis.exe in a file named Finis in C:\hp\bin is normal, or could this be a virus causing the CPU problem. hp\bin seems a funny place to have 2 copies of nis.exe.
