Hello, these questions are better geared for those of you who play multiplayer games. I play WC3 online, and as of recently, I lag every 15-20 seconds during a game. This is not internet connection lag because I tested my speed prior to this and was going at a full 2-3 Mbps. The lag is similar to that of WZC (Wireless Zero Configuration) and how it basically lags at an interval. My WZC is obviously turned off, and when I check my processes, 98-99% resources are still free. So its not some program thats causing it to lag. My questions: What is causing this "system lag" every so often? Is it possibly my video card? I recently changed my Windows XP search tool to the classic version through Regedit, and once I did this, my explorer.exe started to be really choppy. I restarted my computer and that fixed that. Could this be to blame? Should I change it back to windows XP version of search? Or is this problem caused by my graphics card drivers? Any advice would greatly be appreciated.

This is possibly an overheating problem. Do you have any type of temperature monitoring software?
