    why the hell does cs keep freezing or should I say pausing for a milisecond every 4 seconds when I use my dsl connection ? It doesnt lock up, it freezes every thing for about a tad second, every 4 seconds, then the cycle goes on! and its annoying me. How can I run a smooth game? WHat is going on here? How can I fix this problem? Plz help me i'm desperate! I have a decent comp with P4 1.6 ghz, geforce 2 mx400 (which runs smooth in CS), Windows XP, and 256 mg ddr ram.

    Could be if you are running an FTP server or P2P program as well. Antivirus programs may be trying to update or scan.
