I think this may be a problem with XP checking my DVD drive or possibly my Anti Virus software. Every couple of minutes I get a moment where everything just stops, it is very quick but often long enough to get myself killed. I have a fairly high spec PC and graphics card and I have tested the RAM. Anyone come accross this problem?

    I think I might have sussed it. I had installed some key logging spy software on my PC which also takes regular screen captures, think that might have been it.

    Ah, I actually meant latency not ping but if we are talking the same language then the only peeps I've seen with 15..20 are actually attached to the server.

    Hmmm didnt get any emails to say anyone had replied.

    My graphics is X800XT, 2 x 512 matched Geil RAM, 2600+ processor, Samsung 160n Sata Hard drive. I have themes, visual effects and many services switched off but I just cant get rid of this damn blip, it's ruining my game. Help please.

    Also I have ZoneAlarm Pro and Mcaffee Antivirus but turning off the firewall is not a very good idea is it.

    Hey Guys,
    Well, I figured out twhat my problem was. I had done an automatic windows update (previously I had all options turned off to alert me, haven't done an update since Service Pack 2). Well come to figure out somehow my firewall had been "reactivated". Turned it off, and everything SEEMS to be fine....so i know its a simple overlook, but check to make sure your firewall is turned off....

    I am having the exact same problem and it's driving me nuts!!!! It's to the point that I get killed on a regular basis because of the lag, in every server. I have also noticed that my ping is unusually higher than it used to be...(used to be about 40-50 regularly, now its at 100 or a little over)...I have tried EVERYTHING.....spyware, cancelling other running programs etc, you name it. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE, if anyone knows the answer, post it....even ideas would help at this point.
    Thanks in advance....
