Once my desktop appears and I click on the IE8 Shortcut the little Microsoft "Donut" appears and sits there and spins and spins. The screen will go to a milky white then a message box will appear telling me my selected program is not responding do I want to continue or cancel the program. I found if I do nothing eventually the MSN homepage will appear. I have the very same problem with my Microsoft Outlook 2003 email program, whatever button I press on the donut appears then the screen goes milky white.
It takes a long time to make a folder, when I click on the button nothing will happen then all of a sudden the new box will appear. The same thing happens when I try to edit a description in eBays "Discription Box" what ever changes I am making will write over what is already there but very slowly making it very difficult to see what I am typing. Right now the curser is lagging about four to five letters behind what I am typing, very aggravating. The same thing will happen while back-spacing also.
When I use gmail the whole "topic" box will advance up the screen as I type to the point that I can't see what I am typing. Right now I am almost to a crawl as I am typing this. The curser will stop as I am typing then jump forward revealing the words that I have typed.
All the programs on my computer act up when I try to start them not just IE8. I also have trouble running YouTube type "how to" videos on some websites.
I hope this is enough info for you. Now as I am typing this the cursor is acting normal. (?)
