Windows 7: Cursor Hangs When Scrolling Through Thumbnail Preview

Cursor Hangs When Scrolling Through Thumbnail Preview

Hello. First time poster hoping someone can provide me with some insight. I have a 64-bit HP dv6-2155dx, with 4 GB RAM and I am running Windows 7. When I have multiple Internet Explorer tabs open, and I am scrolling over the thumbnail previews of these tabs down in the taskbar area to see what pages are currently open, every few minutes or so my cursor will hang/freeze for a split second and then go skip back to normal movement. It doesn’t matter if I am using my touchpad mouse that is on my laptop or a wireless mouse via USB. It’s becoming kind of annoying. My question - Is this a common issue?
Is it stemming from typical high CPU usage and I should "just live with it"? Thanks in advance for any assistance you can provide me.

Hi,

I am running a HP ProBook 4320s and am experiencing the exact same problem. It doesn't only happen with IE though, I am now getting it with other applications (itunes etc.).

Hi dear,

Can you check your system Performance when you get this problem? (CPU Usage, Memory usage or ..)
By the way, Try to using another browsers like Firefox (This feature is available on these browsers by default or adding add-ons.)

The problem is with the cursor getting stuck while I'm browsing.
I looked at the Task Manager while it happens and I don't see anything out of the ordinary with CPU etc...

I tried browing with Fire Fox but the same problem persist.
I just tried to restore my computer to an earlier time (like a month ago, when this problem for sure didn't occur) but it didn't help...
