    Photoshop 7 running slow on Windows 8

    MBTA502

      I have Photoshop version 7 running on a new Windows 8 system. I ran in previously on a Windows 7 system. I don't know all the system details, but i know there is plenty of RAM (16 gb), plenty of space, plenty of everything, and it is compatible, however, it is dragging a lot, which it has never done. I reset it so the scratch disks are not the same as the OS (as Adobe generally suggests) and that's done nothing. It also has nothing to do with opening or working on files - there is a delay on opening items on the toolbar and opening dialogue boxes.

       

      I have 2 hard drives - one "fast" but smaller - 104 gb, and one regular at 931 gb. I've tried installing it in both locations separately, and it behaves the same.

       

      Any thoughts/ suggestions would be greatly appreciated!! (Also, I know Photoshop 7 is an older version, and if it were up to me, I'd just upgrade, but I don't get to make those decisions...)
