Photoshop 6.0 slowing down?
Posted on 2001-06-03
I'm using PS 6.0, and lately I've noticed it seems to be slowing down quite significantly.
For example, when I click on a tool I have to wait 5-10 seconds for it to become active... When I load a file, it loads just as quickly (according to the little progress bar at the bottom of the screen) but I have to wait about 20 seconds after that before the image actually appears.
And it now takes longer to load up a filter window then it does to actually apply the filter itself.
My system is (A Dell Inspiron 8000):
32mb Video Card
10gb HDD (with about 3gb free space)
Windows 98 SE
I defrag/scandisk regularly.
This is just a recent phenomenon (used to run beautifully)... It started about 3 weeks ago, but I can't think of anything significant that's changed. The computer is a laptop, and no hardware has changed in it.
The only software I've installed in the last month consists of a few games (SWAT 3 Elite Edition and Rogue Spear: Urban Operations).
Anyone got any ideas as to the cause of (and hopefully a solution to) this problem?
