I've just done a fresh install of Windows XP Pro (on a new hard drive). Problem: I'm getting slow visual response. Whenever I'm scrolling down a page (Web, email), dragging a window, resizing column widths in Windows Explorer, etc., things don't move quickly or smoothly. Rather, the scrolling/moving happens with a very delayed, jerky "wave" effect. If I'm deleting several email messages from my Inbox, instead of all disappearing at once, they individually "ripple" away, taking 1+ seconds each to disappear from the list. If I'm scrolling up/down in Windows Explorer or email, the cursor moves at normal speed from line to line within the window's visible contents; but when I reach the top/bottom of the window, it slows down, displaying the next line, then rippling all other lines up/down before adding another line, etc. Anyone know what's causing this slow response? How can I adjust it?
The system seems to be running fine - i.e., not sluggish processing. Just getting this jerky/wave visual effect.
