Alright. I have just noticed this because i was (and need to be working on) a english project which, obviously, involves using a word processor. In my case Microsoft word.

But its being weird.

When typing it is slow, the letters not appearing on the page until i stop for a second. Then they appear, with volumes of mistakes.

Also when trying to use the tool bar menus (such as the spacing selector) the menu gives the pre-drop image (faint image JUST before it actually shows its self) and stops, no menu.

Any one know whats up with this? I would like to fix the problem without having to reinstall.

I dont remember having this problem in recent memory.

You might want to turn off any applications you have running in the background as well. This will free more RAM for Word.

I also noticed that Office 2007 eats resources like crazy. It's not suitable for slow computers.
