I'm using a dell dimension 3000 here with a gig of memory it's running a linksys wusb54 gc usb network adapter that works with all the linux and windows systems I've used it on.
Every action i make including mouse clicks and key strikes are delayed (I have messed with the settings for the mouse and the keyboard and it don't help) . It's maddening. When in windows it's a symptom of having been infected with addaware and other stuff I don't wish to deal with . that is one of the reasons i came over here to linux. I have several other systems that run just fine with LM13 but this is the only one I have with LM14.
I was thinking there should be a display somewhere that would tell me what is running and using the resources but I'm not familiar enough to find it. Appreciate the help.
