Problem Hardware Make & Model: Nvidia GeForce4 Ti with AGP8X and LG L1915S TFT Monitor
Error Messages:  
[HR
Moving images on my screen seem to do millisecond stops and starts.  My screen saver is windows plus Aquarium and the fish swim nicely for a while, stop for a millisecond and then carry on.  This also happens in games, even simple ones like magic ball.  I have downloaded the latest NVidia driver and the latest monitor driver.  I use McAfee security suite which I have tried disabling but am never sure its not sneaking around in the background anyway. Can anyone advise why this is happening.  I am running two screens one 19 inch square and one 17inch widescreen is my problem that the graphics card needs replacing.  I am thinking of upgrading to a second 19 inch screen but not unless I can cure this problem.Undecided

Sounds like something else is running in the background. Something that uses disc-access. Check what's running in your Task Manager.

Thanks for the help I have run task manager and looked at the processes.  I input some into google and then stopped some of them running via msconfig.  However I have some things running which are not reflected in startup on msconfig.  Does this mean they are windows files or is it possible to stop even more.  I regularly run adaware and use pop up stopper so I think I am clear of adware.

Depends on what the files are that are in the list. If multiple svchost.exes, they are benign. Normally the svchost.exe is a file which holds the executed entries of multiple Dynamic Link Libraries (*.DLL).

I have worked on this most of the day and think it is largely resolved.  I only have 37 processes running now and most of those are mcafee or other items I can identify.  the cpu usage has fallen to generally below 10% and so I think its probably ok now.  Thanks for the help this is a great resource.
