Another example would be switching tabs in Firefox, clicking a tab, it would take a few seconds to switch. Going to a different program would have the same effect.
I ran MemTest for about 14 hours or so and passed. I have 8GB of RAM.
Does anyone know why this is happening?
I've seen this exact
problem in FireFox, on both Windows 7 and XP. It's highly intermittent and seems to be dependent on other programs running in other FF windows. For example, I get it a lot when running Zenoss Enterprise in another FF Window.
I used to also get it a lot in XP even when not running Zenoss, but lately it has gone away. Lots of people have it, I don't think has anything to do with failing hardware. I've experienced it on a half-dozen or so different computers running XP, but not yet on Windows 7. The Zenoss support people also experience it, and also sometimes when not running Zenoss.
If you search the FF forums you can see a lot of gnashing and complaining, but no one seems to have an answer ...
