    Some usual causes include virus infection, low memory and the hard drive is getting full. You probably have the first covered since you have an antivirus program, right? The second will cost you and can be difficult to obtain. The third one is pretty easy to solve. Getting there is a little different depending upon your version of Windows (98, ME, 2000, XP, Vista). Basically, you right-click on "My Computer" on your desktop and select Explore. Then, right-click on your C: drive and select Properties. Once that's done, click on the Tools tab. Click the Defragment option. A window will appear showing your drive(s) with a couple of buttons. Analyze and Defragment. You can cut to the chase by clicking Defragment. Note that this may take from a few minutes to over an hour, depending upon how full your drive is. Check the %Free Space. It should not be less than 10% or so. If so, you can clear up some space by clicking on the General tab and then click the Disk Cleanup button. This will take some time, too.

Try the Throttle Positioning Sensor. It's located on the throttle body. Make sure you get a genuine Nissan part though. I believe it's about 120 dollars at the dealer. But this fixed the issue for me.
