Delay when typing letters


What could cause a delay in seeing what you have actually typed on the screen? When I am typing trying to send an email, the letters take a few seconds to show up. I have tested for viruses, deleted the history (just in case it was to full). I have no clue as to what else to look for. In the other, programs, the letters show up just fine. Please tell me what I need to look for. Thanks in advance.

Hello , there might be background program running at the same time when you are running the e-mail application program Try not to have to many application open such as Microsofte Word, Internet Explorer, or other programs that are on the system tray.

What you might do is to scandisk your Hard drive, defragmented it , and use cleanup disc utility Also uninstall some program that you have recently install.

Also try not to use your Active Desktop as a webpage and don't put Background picture that takes too much time to show up.
