I have this problem with internet explorer. Whenever I click in a field where you type, it pauses for 5 seconds and then allows me to resume typing. Same thing with submit buttons etc. When I press those buttons, it takes another 5-10 second pause before resuming. It doesn't happen in netscape though. Just wanted to know if this was strange.

In IE go to tools in the menu bar and click Internet Options. Click the Advanced tab and uncheck Use Inline Autocomplete. That's what causes the problem you're having. Mine started that a while back, and it would often completely lock up the system. I never use autocomplete anyway, I just keep typing and never notice it, so it didn't bother me to turn it off. Now it works great.
