Typing in Word 2003 slow respond time

Specs: Windows XP

Hi,
Typing in Word 2003 has started to type slowly in the last week or so. Every other program works normally but not Word. Why has this started to happen?

I run 512MB RAM & 41.9GB Hard Drive. PC 2005 model. Am I out of RAM?

The words appearing slowly could be due to a number of system resources being low

The best way to find out is to go to task manager (press ctrl+alt+del) and find out if something is taking a high amount of CPU or RAM.

Hello,

I have slow-down problem too with Word 2003 since yesterday.

When i change the position of the caret, using the mouse or the keyboard arrows, it freezes for a short time, like 0.3 to 0.8 second.
No freeze though when typing.
Checked CPU and HDD resources, all at 0% (Perfmon)

Any idea ?

I just solved my problem.

I have Sybase PowerDesigner 12 installed.
This program also added an Add-in into Word 2003.

This add-in was the problem (probably an incompatibility with the last Office hotfixes).
I just uninstalled (disabled) it and Word works just fine ^^.

-------
What i did :
1. Word => Add-ins => WordToRQM => Remove
2. Close Word and confirm saving "WordToRqm.dot"
3. Goto "C:\Program Files\Sybase\
PowerDesigner 12\Add-ins\Microsoft Word Import Export"
4. unregister WordToRqm.dll ( regsvr32 /u WordToRqm.dll )
5. rename the "Microsoft Word Import Export" by "Microsoft Word Import Export.DISABLED" (or anything else)

I have the exact same problem and have had a heck of a time trying to find a solution. Can you clarify on your last step:
5. rename the "Microsoft Word Import Export" by "Microsoft Word Import Export.DISABLED" (or anything else)

Thanks.

I just realized you were talking about the "Microsoft Word Import Export" folder.

Thank for you help. It resolved my problem also.
