Windows 7: Typing (and System) Slowdown

Typing (and System) Slowdown

I am experiencing sudden slowdowns while typing, mainly in Internet Explorer online. Characters become slow to appear, and appear in groups as system tries to catch up, sometimes omitting a character or two. at other times, the system freezes and I must wait 5 to 10 seconds or more for it to recover.

Have you tried other browsers, to see if the problem exists for them as well?

Opera is a fast browser. I recommend that you try browsing with it.

If that doesn't solve the problem, then try Firefox, with the NoScript security suite add-on installed. NoScript blocks all scripts except for those which you allow. I suspect that there are some scripts running in the background which are causing the freezes and delays; therefore, NoScript can be a big help.

Thanks for your suggestions, mrjimphelps. I have had some other problems with Firefox so I'm disinclined to go that route. I'll give Opera a try next. I suspect that the background scripts are the likely culprit. I now recall having had similar problems in the past with Windows Updates chopping up the foreground. :)

Can also be a malware or win update.
