    When I'm on the internet, watching a Youtube video, scrolling down, typing...

    what could be the issue?

    1. Clear your browsers cache/history
    2. Delete the Caches folder from username/library
    3. Repair permissions

    All 3 are good places to start. Try that than come back and post if you have the same problem.

    Is your hard drive full?

    Also, download and install iStat. You can see if your CPU or memory are maxed out.

    Pauses usually come from the cpu being bogged down. This could come from memory swapping / caching issues, or the cpu is too slow. What are the specs of this iMac?

    Ok....clearing the Browser History seemed to fix the problem....

    However, I would love to know how to screen shot the iStat results?
