Is it when you're doing something specific or all the time or?

You need to provide a little more info. Something to give people a start to try and help you.

You aren't going to get much help when you post such vague threads.

Primarily, my browser is very slow to respond to my pressing any buttons.

Is it an old PC? Next to the KDE desktop, the Gnome desktop needs the most resources. Maybe try Xubuntu on an old PC, or if it's all internet, is it WIFI, or Cable, and what type of internet, Dial-up, DSL, or Cable?

Have you installed anything new? Started anything like compiz-fusion? That can lag computers.
