Hi, This is a first time post for me.

My question is this:

I have a Windows XP system. When I type, whether in email or in Word, as I gather a typing momentum, the cursor will suddenly pause for two or three seconds. In the meantime, I continue typing, even though I am unable to see the letters as they are being typed. After two or three seconds, the cursor will release and the characters that I typed while the cursor has paused appears on the screen. :confused:

Hope I am explaining this clearly. This problem has made it difficult for me to type with any kind of consistent speed without having to stop and wait for the computer to "catch up." This should not be happening. I have a very "speedy" new Dell computer.

Thanks for your attention. :eek:

hmm, your computer is just running slow, if this is an old pc then consider upgrading, or look for some spyware that may be lurking around and slowing it down.

is it slow in all instances???

oops, just read the bit about the speed, ummm probably too much open or something slowing it down

Hi Michael,

Thanks for your prompt reply. Yes, perhaps, some spyware slowing it down. I have a free copy of "Spysweeper". Am searching for the culprit now, if that is the problem.

Don't have a lot open right now, which is what mystifies me. Also, just did a restart, but still have the problem.

Will keep trying.

Just a thought,but have you thought about disabling startup items that you don't need to start on bootup.Having too much stuff in there can slow your system down dramatically.The only things I allow to start on bootup on my machine are my anti virus and firewall.

Also go here:http://www.blackviper.com/WinXP/servicecfg.htm
and check out the service configurations,there are a lot of services that you can disable to help your system run better and faster
