While playing FA I randomly get a screen freeze. My RAM is not full, nly 1 of my cores is maxed, the other core is hovering around 50%. The freeze just suddenly freezes, flickering between 2 frames. The game itself still functions, I can click on stuff. But I cant see to give commands. Video card is a Geforce 6150 SE, which I'm sure is part of the problem, but NOT the whole thing, as this hasn't happened until recently even though I have always had that card. Any ideas?

You're not folding proteins in the background are you? I left a folding simulation running once and it had unnatural jerks every so often. But seriously, background processes would be my first thought.

I noticed macafee prompted me to update shortly after closing out, perhaps macafee's update detector is causing the issue? Another guess is that I just had another freeze-up right as I sent about 15-20 mantis to attack a mass extractor, although I was zoomed out to almost maximum.
