The problem ocurrs when I switch windows between the DOS window and the Notepad window. Going from Notepad to DOS, it's fine. But when going from DOS to Notepad (or whatever application I happen to be copying from), there is a delay of up to 3 or 4 seconds before the application is shown. The problem does NOT ocurr when I switch windows by using my mouse to click over to the program...only when I use ALT-TAB to switch windows.
Also, the issue doesn't seem to occurr on my work computer, only by home computer, so it has to be something specific to my home computer.
I have my XP fully updated as well as the latest video drivers. I can't seem to figure out what the problem is.
One last bit of info...if I have a DOS window open, but have yet to go into the DOS program in question, the problem does not occurr. But once I go into the program in the DOS window, the problem occurrs. As I said, the problem does NOT occurr on my work computer, so the issues can't be solely with the DOS program. It has to be something on my computer, but I've run out of ideas.
Thank you for any help,
