Why does system Hesitate?
I am running a 350Mhz PII on an ASUS motherboard. The system hesitates so badly that moving the moouse across the screen becomes a chore. Other symptoms include massive clock slowdowns (1000 secs/day). I have replaced the MB battery, I have removed all Norton and other background tasks. Wintop shows nothing extraordinary. What are some of the potential causes for this? HELP!
Sounds like it could be a virus. Are you running an up-to-date scanner?
here try this when your about to scan for a virus with norton go into options and click the exclusion tab button. if there is anything listed delete them except for the one name *.Vl? also on the scanner tab click that all files be scanned. you will notice alot more files being scanned. what windows you running and what version of norton you running?
one more thing i have alot of good help with this program called system mechanic. d/l it at www.download.com you get a free 30 day trial hope it works out for you.
I'm running Norton antivirus with updates from 5/19/00. It scans clean on all files. More than 30 days old, but this hesitation problem has been going on for longer than that. Should I try a different AV program?
Sounds like a helluva lota things could be sharing one IRQ - have a look for resource conflicts.
Lots of space left on the HDD?
Add any hardware lately?
Try booting into safe mode and check for any multiple entries such as 2 or more video cards, etc. Delete any extras in safe mode.
These multiple entries don't show up unless in safe mode.
