Continued from here: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic412248.html/page__gopid__2357204#entry2357204

I've been getting all of these temporary freezes with my programs, where for 10-30 seconds my program doesn't respond, then eventually it comes back to life. After running some security scans, I was told it doesn't look like anything malicious is causing this. I updated a few programs, and it seemed to help for a bit, but now it's acting up again.

Can anyone give any advice on how to fix this problem?

I see that you have multiple AV's:

Avira AntiVir Personal - Free Antivirus
ESET Online Scanner v3
ZoneAlarm
ZoneAlarm Toolbar
WMI entry may not exist for antivirus; attempting automatic update.
Avira successfully updated!

Please remove all and keep one you prefer.

A while back I got some help on this forum, and was recommended to run an antivirus and a firewall, which is why I had the Avira and the ZoneAlarm.

You also have Eset installed. You can use Windows Firewall for your firewall.
