I'm having this problem that slows word down and has my brain itchin': when using word, sometimes a while after I open a
document, sometimes just 10 secs afterwards, word will start to freeze, but the program is not hung. It won't move but in
certain moments, say, periods that range from 3 to 5 secs aprox. So I can move the cursor about, but it will show the icon it
was showing the last time word "froze". 5 secs or so, and it updates. Then it freezes again immediatly. The same thing
happens to the writing, formatting, and every other action/command. I type a phrase and the screen stays still; when it comes
of time, it updates. Then back to frozen state.
The only thing that seems to stop this "freeze" issue is the scrollbar; that is, you press on a scrollbar button (up / down,
doesn't matter), and if word is "frozen", it will take the 5 secs until it takes the command. From that point, word won't
freeze until you release the mouse button. It will scroll up/down just smoothly. When you let go of the button, flash! Frozen
Apart from this, word works normally. This happens in more than one document.
This glitch is really annoying. Any
