    I seem to have this problem where regularly while im in SecondLife it seems to stop fr a few seconds, and then what ever other windows i have open pop up 2 the front, and when i move them they leave a trail behind them, sort of like tracers but they dont dissapear, it sort of looks like theres 1000's of windows open. not sure what has gone wrong but it does it in some other games aswell

    anyone else had this.

    edit: there are no viruses or spyware on my PC

    I am using Vista 32bit, on an athlon 64 x2 4000, 2GB DDR2 ram, 2xGeForce 8800's DX10. 2x500GB Harddrives

    sounds like lag. When a program stops responding, dragging and dropping doesnt refresh the screen, and the windows appeas like its there 1000's of times.

    This isnt all that uncommon......
