I guess it could be a stuck key or key command that email doesn't use.

It would be far fetched.

I guess you could run perfmon to see what process is using more when you move windows to non-email.

Guess you could get a bootable floppy or cd that has a keyboard test.

Your run-on sentence is confusing. Do you mean it only works OK when typing an email or only works OK with everything except emails?

Sometimes, especially on this site with my old 98 machine, typing will be slow or even halt for a few seconds. It seems to be associated with the page being slow in completely loading.

If it is your email that's slow then my guess is it's doing some online activity in the background that's slowing it down.

Thank you for your replies. The problem is only with writing emails. My computer is less than a year old. My husband thinks the problem is due to a virus. I run a quick scan every day and fun scan once a week and have never found anything.

It likely is something that's running in the background. Have you installed any new software since the last time it was working right?

ironically the only new software added has been McAffee. I had to change over tothem from Symantic, because when I tried to renew with Symantic something on my computer would not allow it. I deon't know if this is related or not.

Jefro-what you said about running perfmon, what is this?
