    Like say you are multitasking and you have 4 windows open on the task bar. You switch from one to another, yet when you click, sometimes a graphic from one menu or window will freeze somewhat or delay or get choppy , not instant.

    What causes this just curious. Any way to fix this at all or prevent it cause it drives me absolute nuts

    Generally it is a sign your system resources are at max and struggling to keep up. Some applications are CPU hogs and you may have ookaboodles of memory etc, but the CPU is tied up and you just have to wait until it's digested the previous applications requests. Regular maintenace helps at times, run a defrag and if your memory is marginal, some folks get a bit of improvement by running memory defrag utilities... I wouldnt recommend that unless you are desperate. If all else fails, a good dose of FDISK Oil will get the old fellow regular again.;)
