    Indesign & illustrator CS6 very slow

    artwork2tempo Community Member


      We have a 6 month old DELL precision T5600 workstation, with following specs:

      E5-2603, quad core, 1.8G

      500G, 10,000RPM,


      1G quadro 600 graphics

      win 7 pro 64 bit


      generally, every action in indesign & illustrator takes a couple of seconds, be it selecting an item, moving them around, copying images or selecting some texts. just lagging and freezing.

      the files are on a server, but the same after copied the files to local disk.

      recently reinstalled the PC, wiped the hard drive and clean install. worked fine in the first a couples of days.

      those files are fine on other PCs with same specs. other apps e.g. office suite are fine.


      Could you please suggest troubleshooting steps and possible causes? thanks very much.
