Sluggish PC response on Windows 7 installations

Running on systems with Windows 7 and Office 2010 have had some issues with sluggish response over time with TraceFinder and Xcalibur.

There seems to be an issue with memory leakage that is addressed in current Windows and Office updates. Especially surrounding the Excel 2010 installation.

The solution has been to update Windows 7 to the latest update/hotfixs and to update MS Office with its latest updates or Excel if the is the only office component available.

Easiest way to do this is connect to the internet and choose update Windows from the Windows Update icon in the Control panel.

The updates for each can be downloaded from the Microsoft.com/Downloads section of the Microsoft website.

Windows Update From Control Panel

Office Update From Excel Help
