I'd make sure you don't have odd ball extensions and tool bars running. Really, you just have to be careful what you allow onto your system.
I'm running on a duel core 2.2 with 4 gigs of ram, and generally anything (within reason) runs smoothly. That said, I don't have things I'm not
using running in the background, I only have one extension, which I personally installed, and I don't use tool bars.
You'd be surprised at all the crapware programs try and slip onto your system, from seemly legit sources. Never just click through a install, always
check what else is being installed. If you're downloading say "spybot search and destroy", and it offers to install some tool bar, decline the tool
bar and just install the desired program.
Check into what time your computers updating, virus scanning, or defraging. Many times when your computer appears to be acting up, it's simply
updating or running some other maintenance task. Since you're asking for help about jerky web-browsing on this forum I'd suggest not adjusting
anything, and just allowing it to do it's job.
I suggest looking into keeping your system clean by doing a google search. You'd be amazed how much information you can find on the subject, all of
which should be explained in a way that just about anyone can understand.
