Computer pauses every few seconds in Hotmail?

Specs: Windows XP
Only when I am in my Hotmail account, my laptop pauses every 3 seconds for a split second and at the same time the hard drive light goes on and makes a buzz sound. So if I am typing, the typing pauses every 3 seconds which is annoying. As soon as I close hotmail, the problem goes away. What could be the problem? This just started happening recently and it doesn't occur on my other laptop.

I might need a new ac adapter as the wire near the plug end that goes into the laptop is worn and I have gotten errors on startup concern the ac adapter needing to be reseated. But this problem still exists even while running on batteries.

Might look at performance monitor and make a log for review.

Also see event viewer logs.

Why did it take me over a year to phone in a problem to ATT?

That also happens to me. When I try to close the page a message shows up that says "Not Responding".
