    Hi,

    I am having trouble with using the buttons and the writing windows of websites.

    Whenever I hit a button with my mouse or try to advance to another writing window, ie: with your tab key. I get a long hiccup or pause before I responds. It can be as long as a minute.

    I hope you know what I am talking about.

    I do remember that once that happened before and it was because my macfee viriser was working in the back ground. But that is not on. Maybe there is something running in the background, but I forget how to check.

    Anything you can think of.

    I am using a PIII 256megs compag with ie as my browser.

    thanks, Jason

    Hi, jb

    You can see a partial list of what's running by pressing and holding down control+alt+delete. You can End Task on most everything except Explorer and Systray, no harm will come to you...

    If you've got a bunch of other stuff in there you can end them one at a time, but when you restart your computer, they will return.
    Or you can do this:
    In Windows98 Start>Run. Type "msconfig" (no quotes) and click the Startup tab. To clear programs that may run in the background on start-up, just clear the check boxes, except for the ones mentioned above, and reboot your machine.

    You can re-enable anything on the list that you wish by going to msconfig again and checking the box, in case something doesn't work the way you want it to.

    (Also be sure at some point you have cleaned your temporary 'net files out. Post back if you wish assistance with that)

    Let us know if that helps.

    Hi RT,

    Well I don't think that it is something working in the background.

    I've changed some things and it hasn't changed.

    Do you have any other ideas what it might be?

    From your orignal post it sounds like you are having trouble filling in online forms. Is that correct?

    Or do you mean that you also experience this delay when you click any button, or link, in a website?

    Both actually,

    When I write something in a online form and go to the next online form window there is a delay. And when I hit an button there is a delay.

    Pretty puzzled, Jason
