Computer with sticky brakes.

  spuds 12:26 15 Jan 2006

I have noticed recently, that my computer seems to start and runs with great speed, especially on internet use. During the course of the day, the machine is left on, but not in use. Returning back later, I tend to find that the computer appears to have slowed down considerably. Placing the pointer on a subject or link seems to cause an hesitation process, which in some cases can take perhaps 15/20 seconds or maybe more to resolve.

Regular anti and security checks are undertaken. Defrags and linespeed checks always seem to be favourable.

Could there be an underlying problem that I need to consider!.

Question still open for further contributions.
