    I know that my pointer is moving so slow because of the processes and cpu work that's running, however, I can't figure out what it is that is making this happen. I used to be able to run my burn drive (hp dvd200j) with Nero 6, surf, and download all at the same time with absolutely no slowing. That is not the case now. If I have more than two programs running (Panda IS not included) my pointer is unresponsive for a couple of seconds every couple of seconds; like it's constantly thinking too hard. I've used Spyware S&D, Adaware, Panda antivirus, AceUtilities. I've defragged, gone personally through to delete cookies, history, and cleaned up. I've disabled my Indexing service. I've even deleted all unnessessary programs.(some of which I would have liked to have played with, but they were not NEEDED) I upgraded my firmware on my dvd200j...could that have anything to do with it? Spyware deleted a lot of stuff...Panda found a trojan and got rid of it...Panda also found a few spies that Spyware didn't. What can I do? This is really annoying...especially when my girlfriend is bitching that it's my fault! Haa!

    Well do you have 1 Gig of RAM now or did you already add a new stick?

    If you added a new stick and it started slowing down consider removing the new RAM and trying the system with just the origional .. If that doesn't make a difference than it may not be Ram related .. as many times I have added RAM and the system went slower than before .. came down to different clock speed and different brands.

    It sounds like you cleaned up all the goodies that normally slow you down .. If it is XP than try to remember if you changed any drivers or added any new software upgraded software etc. May new latest drivers to work on your PC

    Try that

    Have you had a task manager window open so you can see what process(es) take(s) a spike when the mouse pointer slows down? If none, then I'd tend to suspect the memory or a new driver, based on what else you say you've done. A good idea is to make changes to your computer slowly and one at a time and be sure they're stable (and don't affect system performance) before proceeding.

    I put in the chip right after I posted that last one. It hasn't slowed at all. I had changed my Nvidia driver(updated it). Maybe that was the issue. I had also updated my firmware on my HP dvd200j dvdburner. Would that slow anything down if I was burning and had other programs going at the same time? Cause, like I said (I think), I used to be able to run four different programs all at once with absolutely no issues. But since the extra chip, no issues so far (knocks on wood here).Should I upgrade my vid card? I have Nvidia GeForce4 MX420 with newest drivers and software? The software is pretty cool, but I haven't tried anything else, so I don't know what I'm missing. Upgrade?

    I knew that I just thought I uninstalled it back in the '80s when p2p wasn't "illegal". Ha. Anyways I was also having a problem with my task bar disappearing. I'm thinking that was just cause I had a movie playing on my TV while I was working on my LCD. The task bar may have been under the movie. That wasn't the case, however. I tried pressing the Windows key on my keyboard and nothing happened. I used my task manager to see what all was running and was able to open programs through the task manager but I couldn't figure out where my taskbar went or how to get it back. Any suggestions on what happened? I did get a new driver for my Vid card, maybe that's the problem? Should I roll it back to the old one? Or should I just wait and see?

    I just remembered somthing else. I had more problems with the pointer issue (before) when I was using the windows explorer to search for movies on my HD. The pointer would really slow up when using windows explorer.

    Well, part of it is that computers seem to have a really hard time handling lots and lots of data through the HD.

    So I should just burn every thing to disc? I was just talking about putting in another 80gig HD bringing me to 160gigs. I was asking on another thread how to go about that. Do you know how?
