I have an: Intel 2.4 GHz Pentium 4 Processor 1G RAM NVIDIA GeForce4 MX 420 Video Card the problem is weird. I play counterstrike and my latency is fine, mainly below 70. Then after a while, the latency goes up to 500+. I haven't done anything to make this increase, except maybe log onto AIM. But after i exit AIM, the latency is still high. Maybe it is because of Norton? I have Norton AntiVirus 2k5. Is there any way i can lower the memory usage of all the processes? Same thing happened to me yesterday. I tried restarting and everything but latency remained the same. Since i couldnt do anything, i went to sleep and went to school and when i came home, it was all good again. Then after a few hours it has the same problem again.
