    New patches slow system down

    Well I didn't see any notes on Woody's Window Watch about the new security patches causing problems. So I downloaded them. Now I'm seeing sluggish performance in my Windows 2000 system. I'm running Office 2002 Outlook 2002 10.4608.4219 SP-2 and I notice it when I'm typing in contacts. The screen doesn't display what I type as fast as I do. And I'm not a fast typer.
    Here is my OS info.
    Windows 2000 (Build 2195)
    Dual PIII 1Ghz

    Below are the updates I downloaded.

    Is it only when editing Contacts that you experience this problem?
    I'm wondering how widespread a problem it is - just Contacts, just Outlook, all Office or everything?

    Right now I only notice it when I'm filling in Contacts in Outlook. But I haven't really used much else lately since I'm working on a project that involves Contact and Outlook.

    Start the task manager. Click on the processes tab. Post the process name(s) which are consuming the processor when the sluggishness occurs.
