Flobewan, Thats a nice list, but Im not the most literate. When I typed this post it would sometimes takes a few seconds to show up on the screen. My computer has taken on a lag time since I turned it off last night. Like there's a whole slew of functions operating in the background, choking the processor. What should I do.
