screen freezes all the time

Hi guys

My screen has started to freeze as i surf the net, everything just seems to stick and when i start typing it has a few seconds delay, i don't see what i am typing until a few seconds later.

Everything else when i am not surfing is as normal, no delay etc, just when i start browsing the problem occurs, i have run virus and adware etc and nothing shows up as a problem, just everything is sticking. When i log off it is fine, but after a few minutes it starts all over again. I am running xp

Any help would be appreciated.

Are there any other symptoms associated with the freezing, such as an unusual noise?

no noise at all, but i do keep getting 'timed out' when i try and log on with bt browser.

Does this also happen with another (non-IE) browser like Firefox click here or Opera click here? G

Hi guys

I can't even get into my bt yahoo browser, keeps saying 'timed out', so i am using firefox at the moment and it seems to be surfing fine, fingers crossed.

Try an IE repair click here or click here. G
