jerky mouse, slow clock, progressively worsens, due to Win98 & NAV?
Posted on 2000-03-03
I've read through similar problems previously posted. This one is prevalent in PC's throughout our organization all over the US. We've standardized mid last year on Win98, Lotus Notes 4.6.2., and NAV 5.01.01. After rebooting in the morning, as the day progresses, mouse will begin to move erractically (hanging every second or so), and clock will begin to lose time (up to several minutes a day). PC will get progressively worse until mouse is virtually unusable, and sometimes the PC nearly locks up with huge amount of swapping going on. Disabling NAV auto-protect will prevent this problem entirely. Another thing I noticed, with a freshly rebooted PC, running a large Excel macro that takes 2 minutes with NAV auto-protect disabled, will run over 4 minutes with it enabled - a pretty big performance hit even before the memory problems begin to emerge. Any advice as to settings to change in NAV or Win98, or what? Thanks, - RoyM
