Ok, here's the scoop, My computer was bought about in 2002, I recently added a stick of 512MB Ram (Had a 256 in there already) Making it 768MB RAM. I like to listen to music so Windows Media Player is open 75% of the time I'm on my computer. It occured about a couple months ago: My mouse freezes for about half a second every 1.5-2 seconds. I don't know why it does this, I mean it doesn't hurt much but it's pretty annoying... If I slowly drag my mouse across the mouse pad... My cursor on the monitor seems like it "sticks" sometimes to the screen :dead: . Here's another thing that happened at the same time that never used to happen before: Everytime I open up a program (Say MSN or Firefox or MS Excel or anything really) my music starts to bug up...like as if IT freezes aswell, and that lasts for about 5 seconds, (or depending on how big the program is) and resumes to it's normal state. I know it doesn't sound like much, but when you got your music Full Blast and your working out and all of a sudden a friend messages you on MSN then your music just locks up with a continuous loud sound isn't very pleasent. Here are my computer specs, don't know if it would help any but whatever. Btw, It Never Did This To Me Before I Added ANY hardware... And also I DID however add Norton antivirus 2004, but even when I take live protect off it still does it.Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
