Hello everyone,

I have just bought a new computer (specs in signature) in December and I have been experiencing this problem ever since I installed WoW on this PC.

While playing WoW, it will sometimes lock up for 5-8 seconds and then kinda fastforward the game to where it should be. Sometimes I'll be missing half my life when it decides to unlock.

I never had this problem before with my old PC and it was a PoS.

Is there a setting that needs to be fixed or what?

Please help. :whistling:

I've been having an issue with WoW and the cursor. Sometimes when I'm clicking with the mouse, my cursor will disappear and then the only thing i can do is use the camera. How do I turn this off?

It is a LAN through a router. I tried to reset my cable modem and my router, but it didn't help.

I have no problem surfing the net and such, only the lag with WoW.
