Why is the computer stuttering or freezing?

Question

why is my computer stuttering when I am using it? Whatever I am doing, typing, playing solitaire, or even just moving the mouse, my computer seems to stutter or stop moving while I am working on it. I recently defraged it, so it does not need that. I have a new virus scan program and have run it. It shows no viruses, could this be a bug? How do I fix this irratating problem? Thank you!

Your computer is "stuttering" because you may not have enough RAM (memory) in your computer You need to upgrade your RAM because the current memory you have is not enough with the programs you have on your computer Also when you are using the computer make sure you do not have alot of programs running at the same time as this could also cause the problem you are having.
