Win XP Service Pack 2 - Intermittently "freezez" computer

greetings all and hello,

after installing XP Pro Service pack 2 on my computer, it seems as though certain
keystrokes cause the computer to momentarily "freeze" or run slow. It only happens
when holding a key.

The main example of this it when trying to multi-select different items by holding
the CTRL key. When this is done, the cursor takes on a jerky movement. And also the
computer seems to lag (you can't select the second or third item immediately, there
seems to be a lag time before the next item can be selected). I hope someone knows
what I'm talking about.

I installed XP Pro SP 2 on my Sony Vaio, P4 3.06GHz. I've never had any problems of
this kind whatsoever under SP1. I've tried doing searches for this problem and a fix
but can't seem to find anything. Does anyone know what might be going on? Thank you.
