Windows timing out?

    I have had this problem ever since having Windows XP.

    An example of this problem is say if I'm running a virus scanning program and scan my hard drive, when I move the mouse the program does not update onscreen, instead it continues scanning but I cannot see the progress i.e the programs viewable state freezes.

    Ths usually happens around 5 seconds after starting the scan or whatever it is.

    Happens with most programs too.

    is there a fix?

    Cannot be a driver issue.

    Look at my sig for my system specs :)

    It happens on my old PC too which has an old ATi Rage 128.

    My drivers are Detonator 29.42.

    No Beta crap for me.
