I'm having an issue with starting a new drawing, or open an existing drawing. (1 workstation out of 60)
When I go to new, part or assy, it opens up the SW templates no problem. When I try to start a new drawing, it just hangs up (Endless Hourglass).
The task manager shows .. 25% cpu usage, and it seems like its grinding away at something.. but more than 30min to start a brand new A-Size (or any) sheet? It doesn't seem right. Even after 30min still nothing.
I'm running SW2010 SP5.0
Dell Precision T7400
Xeon X5450 @3.00GHz
I Tried turning on and off the 3Gb mem swith and no difference
I Tried Uninstalling Solidworks and installing it again and no difference.
I Updated the video card driver to the latest (May 2011)
I logged in as an administrator of the station and still same.
Is re-imaging the workstation my only option?
Or should I consider windows related tweaks, like system files restore?
Perhaps malware (Combofix?)
