Seems like this is happening to lots of ppl. It happened to me and it took a backup/reinstall to get over it. Was pausing badly. I tried the old "rename the fs9.cfg and let the sim create a new one" trick and it did nothing for me. Try that and see if it helps.dolph

other programs not related to FS can cause problems. did you install another program (like a game)?also, make sure you have no spyware/malware/etc. if you FS machine is also the one you use on the www.

How's your computer running in general? If it's slow in general for no reason, I'd suggest doing the usual malware/spyware/virus scans, but I'd also recommend checking what mode your harddrive is in. To do this:- Go to system - properties - hardware - device manager - IDE ATA/ATAPI controllers - 2x click on primary ide channel- click advanced settings tab- look at what "current transfer" isIf current transfer is in PIO, there's your problem. If you have a SATA hard drive, this doesn't apply. I work in the OIT department of my university and we've run into this so often when computers slow down suddenly for no reason and they are clean in every other regard. Hope that helps,

Ultra DMA Mode 2 is fine. As long as it isn't PIO, you're fine. If you want to learn more about this, go [a href=http://neodon.blogspot.com/2006/07/little-known-tweak-to-boost-hard-drive.html]here[/a]. You may be able to make it slightly faster by following that guide.For a malware/spyware scan, I mean using a program like [a href=http://www.spybot.com/en/download/index.html]Spybot Search and Destroy[/a]. That program generally does a pretty good job of cleaning stuff off. You can also run [a href=http://www.download.com/Ad-Aware-SE-Personal-Edition/3000-8022_4-10399602.html?tag=lst-0-1]AdAware[/a], [a href=http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=435bfce7-da2b-4a6a-afa4-f7f14e605a0d&displaylang=en]Windows Defender[/a], [a href=http://www.download.com/HijackThis/3000-8022_4-10379544.html]Hijackthis[/a] (using [a href=http://www.hijackthis.de]this[/a] site to analyze your log). But the other programs are optional. However, no one program does everything, so multiple scans are "best".You may also want to check out [a href=http://www.tweakguides.com/TGTC.html]this[/a] site. It's a very comprehensive guide on how to tweak your system in general. Just chose the "regular edition" (the one with the big download button).Lastly, if you're using an nVidia based card, check [a href=http://www.tweakguides.com/NVFORCE_1.html]this nVidia Forceware tweaking guide[/a].
