Ok, all you computer-buffs... I'm having a bit of a problem that I'v really only seen over the past couple of days... randomly, my computer will get REALLY sluggish for, oh, a minute or 2, or 3... and then go back to its normal speed. It doesn't matter if I'm on a mostly-text site, a graphics-intensive site, or not on the internet at all... it does it, then it's just go back to how I'm used to it. I've done Housecall, the online virus scan... nothing found. I've run my adware and spyware programs, that didn't help... I've run scandisk AND de-fragmented it... and I've erased the temp. files, cookies, etc... none of these seemed to help... anyone else got some brilliant ideas? Oh... I'm running Win 98, if that helps anyone. Thanks!
