What's The Catch?
Posted on 2002-04-25
I'm running 98se. I have a p3/1000 and 512 RAM. My computer has the annoying habit of 'catching' periodically... it kind of hesitates and 'sticks' for a fraction of a second. This is very noticeable in the mouse, but I can see it in games as well.
I run a current totally uptodate AntiVirus, but it's used just to scan... I don't run it resident. I even reinstalled 98se on top of the old install and it still does this irritating 'catch'.
Windows is managing my cache. I have gig of freespace on each of my HD's. When it catches there is NO HD activity registering.
Why's it doing this thing and how can I get it to stop?
