    Whenever I'm on the internet (i'm using latest version of firefox) every two minutes or so my laptop slows down for 20 seconds or so. I haven't got any other programs open, but when I'm viewing OT or watching something on youtube or a documentary the whole laptop slows down. The website or video seems to be lagging. Sometimes the sound can keep up and I see some frames and at the end of the 20 sec it goes fast forward to where I am in the vid, but sometimes even the sounds can't keep up.
    It doesn't matter if I restart the laptop or not.
    I'm running Vista.
    Anybody knows if I can fix it??

    Sorry if my description is unclear, foreign kid here.

    I thank you for the reply.
    I tried it but unfortunately it doesn't work.
    It's still the same.
    The CPU is up to 100% but I don't know what makes it get so high.
    Only thing I do is browse the internet or watch a video.
    :dunno:

    Disable all add-ons, see if it still happens.

    Google toolbar sometimes made flash videos lag on my pc for a split second.
