On my windows2000 machine, I have a probem: whenever I right click on something, there is a lag of two to seven seconds for a menu (or whatever) to pop up.
It seems to be culmulitive, so if I right click, wait for the delay, get the menu, cancel it, if I rigtht click some place else, it’ll pop up right away. But if I leave it for a while (10 mins?) do normal left click and typing work, when I go to rigt click, the lag is back.
It’s verrrrry frustrating, and happens in every windows app I use, as well as the OS itself.
I am using a Athlon 1.4g, 512mb RAM. It’s a moderately recent install (three months?) I don’t use the machine much now I have a new machine at work, but it does have a lot of apps on it. Performance in other ways is fine, as you’d expect from a machine of this spec. The mouse is PS2, but I used to have a serial on on it, and it did the same thing.
Any ideas, anyone?
