    I have a fast system, but I notice every once in a while, a gif on some web page will slow my comp down so much it takes a few seconds to even register a button being clicked
    why?

    Animated gifs combined with Internet Explorer sometimes seriously uck up and slow down teh computer.

    Only cause Internet Explorer blows though.
