    Default Strange typing delays.

    Hi I have Windows Vista, and I having a problem that so far seems to be happening only when I'm typing an email in Yahoo. I will be typing then suddenly the characters will stop showing up. It doesn't matter how fast I'm typing either. It use to be that if I wait a few seconds the characters would suddenly pile in. Now it will just stop and I'll wait forever and they won't pile in. So the only way to release the freeze is to do control, alt, delete and bring up task manager. As soon as I bring that up I don't even have to do anything else, I just click off the task manager and it makes the freeze break on the characters and they start piling in again.

    I hope this is clear, it's hard to describe so if I haven't described it well enough to get an answer or suggestion, then feel free to ask me more questions and I'll try to answer them as well as I can.

    Thank you.

    Hi avenutian,

    Welcome to Help2Go!

    Open the Task Manager and check to see if you have PCMSERVICE.exe running under processes. Disable (End Process) that process and let me know if that helps.
    If you think you might be infected with malware or have recently cleansed your computer of malware without the help of an expert, please read and follow the instructions in How to Start Removing Viruses and Spyware from your Computer. This can alleviate time consumed in trouble shooting your current computer problems.

    If your problem is solved, here's how to say thanks!
