    Computer skips every few seconds.


    So Ive had my computer for about 6 months now and it just started randomly skipping. Ill be typing a sentence or playing a game and its like its trying to refresh something in the background. Sometimes when i even go to watch a video in windows media player and try to watch it in full screen it kicks me back out to windowed mode. Not sure whats up and was just looking for some help!

    " it kicks me back out to windowed mode " what do you mean by this? Won't go to full screen or what

    Uninstall McAfee using their removal tool and reboot, see if the problem persists. You could always put it back if it was not the problem::
