  • This happens cause a program is taking up all the CPU cycles. Only way to know what program it is, is to check the Task Manager.  There whatever is showing a high amount of CPU usage is what is causing the lag.  Could be something to do with Aero and DWM, could just be IE trying to catchup with its requests.

  • I have the same problem...I can click on a link or ANYTHING and it takes 5-10 clicks to get a response.... once I get it to click I can type about 10-15 words before it shows up in the text field...very annoying...I dont know how to resolve it other than trying another install...
