    Computer running in slow motion?

    In all my time working with/on PCs I've seen a lot. But never before today have I seen a computer running in slow motion. I don't mean that the PC is running slow, like I open a program and it takes forever to load and games are laggy. No, everything is super smooth and responsive, games don't lag or have FPS issues/drops. But everything is like those slow motion shots you see on TV and youtube all the time.

    It went away after a restart of the PC, but I'm wondering if anyone else has ever seen this and/or know what caused it so I can try to prevent it from happening again.

    Could be, but the CPU is pretty new (under a year) and GPU is a lot older (probably 3+). Plus it was so odd to just see things go in slow motion even in games. It wasn't really like what you'd expect from a clogged CPU (which I've seen and even done on purpose before when I've stress tested something) where it's like choppy gameplay and animations of windows opening/closing and stuff.

    I have (had?) the same thing ever since I got my i7 920 processor and Windows 7. I recently installed Windows 8 and I haven't had it happen yet, but it didn't happen that frequently anyway.
    Never found out what causes it though.

    It is really frustrating when PC work slowly, but it is a machine human also don't work at same pace every time. Is your computer virus free because if you do not scan regularly it becomes slow so try to these.
