Vista/Office problems... come inside.
Sometimes when I do cell formatting in excel, like adding borders, or bolding the text, it will sit and think for about 3-4 full seconds, then complete the operation I want to do. Whats also wierd, is that during these 3-4 second 'thinking' periods, my network traffic will jump around from 0kb/sec to ~20-30kb/sec, then stop once the 'thinking' is done. It's not a fluke, it happens every time.
Also printing in Vista via a shared printer on the network (running xp), is extremely slow. I have the same sort of 'thinking' when I change options, click print, format the print job, etc. Every time I change something, it 'thinks' for 3-4 seconds. Printing a paper in fast-draft in black and white can take up to 30 seconds to get it all set up to send to printer because of the constant 'thinking'.
I've got 2gb ram, a fresh vista install, an overclocked athlon64, etc etc, so that should not be the problem.
