Looks like you never got an answer. I have a several similar postings that you may want to consider. I have 'ghost' sites, I think ActiveX is causing problems and I suspect Design Notes is highly suspcious. Even Dreamweaver is very slow. At least is shows a message indicating why it's slow. And, to top it off, I noticed that CPS now has 4 log files, and CPS randomly writes entries to them. Last time I looked, there were only two log files. Maybe, between the two of us, we can solve this issue. Best of luck. Let me know what you think.
