Windows 7: Delay between command and response

Delay between command and response

Suddenly this computer has developed a delay between command and response. This applies to:
- typing (delay before letters show)
- clicking(delay before click activates)
- any ordinary operations ... opening pages, playing videos, closing browser etc.
This is a recent development and there is no obvious source (ie haven't visited insecure sites)

I have scanned and report is virus free.

Unsure what other steps I can take aside from a total file scan.

Any suggestions?

Run msconfig. Go to the Services tab. Disable all non-Microsoft services. Reboot the computer. See if the problem has disappeared.

If this fixed the problem, then one of the non-Microsoft services is the culprit. Reenable one at a time in msconfig, rebooting after each reenable. When the problem comes back, you know which service was the culprit.

Reenable the remaining services, one at a time, rebooting after each reenable, to make sure that there isn't another culprit.

Have seen this problem and it was Windows Update. Try to set WU to manual on Services. Open Windows Update and set it to never check for updates.

Thanks mrjimphelps - have done that and found only two non MS items and un-ticked them.

Megahertz07 - what you say feels right ... it all began after an update. Since the laptop crashed completely and I had to restart with rescue disk and then reloaded a system's image. So have lost the latest data.
Would you by any chance have any idea about which DL item it was? Be good to delete it.

What you mean by DL?
Did you turned off WU as I suggested?

DL = Down Load ... probably WD (Win update) should have been used.
Yes, WU now turned off.

I deleted the 3 last WU and so far the system is working properly...early days but looks good.

You know Megahertz07 this is not the first time I've had serious trouble from WU. I used to have MSE (as the anti virus) and
encountered blue screen and total failure due to conflicts between MSW and the WU. Needless to say I never used MSW again.

What gets me is that there is no consumer protection. For example after years of trying to find a solution I still have to put up
with jumping cursor which makes touch typing impossible. MS couldn't care less. To have WU which cause a system to totally lock up (I couldn't restart and had to reboot from REscue disk and re-load recent Image) is just not acceptable.

Thanks for your imput ... it was appreciated.

On my computer Win update is set to manual (on Services) and Never check on WU.
Now I only manually install security only updates.
