1) Slow. I always have 3-5 tabs open, one for yahoo, myspace, twitter, and whatever else I'm doing. I frequently change tabs & refresh while doing ohter work. There's a severe lag between when I click on the tab & when it actually changes. Then it's always at least several seconds before I can scroll down or click on anything whatsoever. There's a severe lag between when I type something & when it actually appears. Is it not normal to be able to change from tab to tab & do multiple things online at once?
2) The speakers are starting to crackle, and videos are getting choppier to watch. This is new. It was never super-fast, but not like this. I can still watch them, but before it was smoother, and I fear it'll get worse.
3) System freezes when changing back & forth between program & frequently left with over-lapping image of old program, ie when I change from my IM back to my browser I can still the partial image of the IM for awhile & it takes awhile before it actually switches to my browser.
All these things are really hard to deal with. I've got a free trial of McAfee that hasn't expired. Have run periodic virus scans & found nothing. I'd really love to use my computer normally. Even typing now there's a delay. Please help anyone. Thanks so much. I've got 1g ram, Intel Atom processor.
