    Photoshop CC 2017 very slow and laggy after latest update

    Crewman.In.Red Level 1

      Apologies if this is the wrong sub.

       

      I updated PS a couple days ago and it's been very laggy since.  I never had any lag before, even when working on my large files.  Now there's a couple seconds delay when switching layers, turning layers on/off, using tools, etc.  I've tried adjusting the usual things like allocating more RAM in the Performace tab (fyi, it's not using all of it), checking and unchecking the Use Graphics Processor option, checking the Scratch disks, and turning off Type Font Preview.  I've even defragged the hard drive recently.  Nothing seems to make a difference.

       

      Not sure if this may be related, but I recently also downloaded and ran System Mechanic (before updating PS).  This cleaned up my system and freed up some hard drive space.  I also uninstalled several pieces of software I wasn't using (none was Adobe software).

       

      Any help is greatly appreciated.
