    I don't think there is anything wrong, but I can't figure why sometimes I can run programs with no lag, and other times I cannot.

    Here is a HJT log. Note that I had to disable my virus scan to do this. It detects HJT as a worm and deletes it. If you see any processes that I can not run that would be helpful.

    Thanks,
    Paul

    One more thing. I defragmented my hard drive last night before I went to sleep. Some of the programs I use read/write to the HD frequently. I'll post later if this has had any impact on performance (I'm at work now).

    How much memory do you have

    Thanks for looking at the log.

    I have 1GB of ram. Computer is a AMB Athlon 1.4 mHz, 40 GB HD.

    I'll repost tonight after trying things after the defrag.
