    CS4 : 4-7 second delay when switching focus to Fireworks


      Hi all,


      I'm experiencing a strange issue that I can't find other people complaining about on the web.   Every time I switch focus back to Fireworks from another application, I have to wait about 4-7 seconds (depending how intensely the PC is being used) before its usable.  This includes a fresh boot with no graphics open. As you can imagine this is very annoying.


      The machine is brand new Dell 3.06 Ghz Core2Duo, 4Gb ram, Win7 Pro 64bit.   All other Adobe programs in the suite are fast and responsive.


      The only other thing noticed was that with a fresh boot and watching the task manager, the CPU goes from 0% to 50% just by switching focus to Fireworks.  There is no such jump doing the same in Dreamweaver or Photoshop.


      I realize FW has its share of inefficiencies, but I've been a long time user of this and other versions on different OS's and never had a delay on program focus before. 


      Any ideas?
