    Somebody save me from madness. When I am online a web page is taking a while
    to download my cursor becomes slow, jerky and unresponsive. Also the
    playback of files on Media Player (9) pauses or is repetetive.

    Does anybody know why? Is it a problem with Internet Explorer, Media Player,
    my mouse driver or just a memory problem.

    if you are using winXP try bringing up the task manager (ctrl-alt-del) and
    look at the "processes" tab, and see what process is using the highest
    percentage of CPU time when that problem occurs. I think you'll find
    something that is using 99% or near it. Ignore "system idle process" though.
    That one is normally at or near 99% routinely, and it's normal.

    Do you have a very slow processor? A software modem used on a PC
    with a very slow processor may behave a you described.

    Do you have plenty of ram and do you defragment your hard drive often, and
    not let it get very full?
