Default Lag on online Java Game

Hey all,
I know many people hate the game 'Runescape' but I think it's pretty darn good.
I've been playing for 2 years and all of sudden its started to freeze every 4 seconds for about 2 seconds, the game catches up with itself and then carries on normally for another 4 seconds.
I've done spyware checks, tried another browser, tried another JAVA type i.e SUN and it's always the same thing happening.
Any ideas?

Cheers

Yeah, sounds like something up with it in itself. Operating Systems do that over time... especially with silly programs like Java. Sun do, after all, make it.

Another less extreme option though could be to just uninstall the Plugin and reinstall it? And make sure it isn't just the game itself, cause if it is happening to other people you don't want to reset your PC and find it is still happening!
