I don't see anything really wrong in what you describe. Except maybe StrPas which is a string handling function that shouldn't used with binary data as HTTP can send. Use Move instead.
You can do better than use TTimer, but using them is not a problem for sure. If you suspect ListView to be the problem, just replace it by a simpler component such as TMemo just for testing. If problem goes away, then you'll know where the problem is. I understod that you didn't use any thread. That's perfect. However if you use thread, care must be taken because most VCL is not thread safe and you must synchronize. Contribute to the SSL Effort.
