    Spybot is your grandmothers cleaner.

    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.

    What is your laptop make/model?

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