I have Trados 2014, Word 2007 and Windows 8.1.

In the last week Trados has become so slow as to be verging on unusable.

It seems to be able to manage very small texts, but anything over say 500 words it hangs for about twenty seconds before moving on to the next segment.

Any ideas anyone?

Thanks Steve Feb 25, 2015

I will follow your advice of reinstalling Word and Trados without the AV running.
