Well spent most of this day reinstalling SolidWorks. I've found that after a while the system tends to get corrupted for whatever reason and becomes highly unstable. A complate reinstall of the software seems to have got rid of the problems. I'm thinking of makng it routine maintenance. Every few months do a complete reinstall. Maybe this should be added in the SW RX maintenance program. Seems ridiculous doesn't it.

I had done a couple of tweeks suggested for improving performance which may not have helped. I changed the annoying drawing compare thingy extension to .txt and deleted a registry file to offset problems with 2008. Will be interesting to see if others have similar issues. Interesting that the drawing compare came back even after changing the extension.
