I run MS Word 2003 as well as using it as an editor when sending Outlook e mails.
Howeve whilst sometimes it runs smoothly most times after I ve written a few lines or so it goes slow and lags behind my typing. Eventually the application just 'freezes up' though if I wait long enough the typing I've done will come up. I can hear my pc processing each letter but doing it very slowly..
Its a HP machine, Intel Pentium with 2.66 GHz CPU. I'm running windows XP Home v 5.1, SP2 is not installed. There's circa 260mb of physical memory available to Windows.
Ive Windows firewall on & a Mc Afee virus scan but it makes no diff with it off or reducing security settings. In fact nothing I ve tried seems to help. I really need MS Word for my work and its driving me slightly crazy.. can anyone please try and help me at all?
