Can some of you tech whiz's explain to me why my computer tends to lag for a few seconds every 10 seconds or so? For example, I'll be scrolling a page and it will stop for a few seconds then start again. Or when watching a video it pauses every few seconds. How can I cure this?

You have a process that is using all your CPU's resources. Hit control alt delete at the same time on XP to view your task manager, select processes and watch it while your using your computer to see what the process hog is.

Spyware & malware. What do you use to protect your computer from such? Also do you have a registry cleaner program?

Try this one: Spybot S&D (http://www.safer-networking.org/en/download/). It is free and arguably the best spyware remover around. It finds stuff the others won't.

Could be the browser you're using. Try a different one. I find when I use IE my PC hesitates. When I use Firefox, it's generally smooth as silk and very fast.

To resurrect this, the process hog is firefox. As of right now it's using 344,000 KB of memory.

Dump all the cookies and your browser cache in firefox.

Are you using the latest version of Firefox: 3.6.3 or above? Also do you have any Firefox addons/plugins?

Don't know about plugins but I am using the latest version. They update automatically.

Firefox is a program that ramps up memerory usage the longer you have it open.
