What kind of scan did you run, Anti-Virus, for Spyware, Ads.

Anti-Virus what happens is the mouses stops then everything else for like 3 secs then back to normal but it happens alot it is pissin me off i am gona formatt if i don't find out what it is it doesn't load anything just locks up.

You may want to download Adaware or HiJackThis and see what else is going on.

If your system is limited on its resources, you won't have anything wrong and it still may act like that. (Like a P-66 with 4 MB of RAM...)

That's the most common reason I've observed for that kind of behavior. What speed CPU and MB of RAM have you? Does the problam usually occur when you have a lot of apps open?

Another reason for this could be that Win98 is accessing your swap file too much. Too little RAM or a bad swap file setting are the likely culprits for that.
