Hey,

I am having a little problem that started recently with my PC. It is hesitating slightly every few seconds. It doesn't happen all the time but enough to be annoying.

What I am seeing is when dragging my mouse across the screen it will hesitate and jump very few seconds. Again, doesn't happen all the time, but enough.

Any ideas?

Thanks

P.S. The help on this forum is great

Hey my name is Freddie.

I had the same problem with my mouse. Installed a new one and everything was fine. I recommend an optical. :tazz:

Do You by any chance use a wireless mouse because if you do you could get advice on how to change some of the settings tomake it more suitable ?

It's not just the mouse (by the way just hooked up a brand new optical to make sure it wasn't). It is my entire computer hesitating like its running something, but there really isn't much running and I have plenty of memory and stuff.

Also, what are you running for Ram on your system??

How do you copy and paste out of msconfig?

Is there a print to text file or something?

I believe it has 1GB of DDR RAM

Hmmm.. what I'm not seeing is an anti-virus program running or a firewall..

Do you have either installed??

Well right now my PC is on my works network which has a firewall built into it. Also I have temporarily disabled the virus scan to see if that was causing the hesitation.
