Noted lately that during flight the display starts intermitently skipping (momentary freezes). This is usually when approaching dense scenery or clouds. Note that this was not happening in the past, even with the full sliders, also got all high capacities PC. Now even with the sliders half down, this is happening. It is not a fluid reduction in FPS, which could be common when approaching dense scenery, just random intermittent skipps, which go away in few seconds. This happened even after full FS de-install (yes full as per Microsoft) and fresh re-install.
Any idea on what could be causing this.
Many thanks

Probably the video card, again ...dust?

Lock the fps at 30, 20 is fine for FSX but 30 is best for FS9.
