so i just reinstalled my system at work the other day, and got most of the programs back on the way they WERE. Everything was running fine. I then proceeded to upgrade my Office & Outlook to the 2007 versions as well as upgrade my Photoshop 7 to CS2. Now, my system is lagging big time. I defragged and disk cleaned but it still takes forever to do even simple tasks such as changing a RGB file to Grayscale (in photoshop) and even my outlook takes forever to open and receive emails. Word and Excel seem OK, but Powerpoint is a little slower now too.
Has anyone else found that these upgraded softwares are bigger system hogs? i mean, i could undertand MAYBE photoshop taking awhile for bigger files, but this was like only 3 MB!!
any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks
btw, my system specs are:
Dell Dimension 4700 3GHZ
150GB & 250GB HDs
