I'm having a problem with my properties window or floating palette. When I select an object, such as a "line", my properties palette refreshes itself for about 3 seconds. When I hit esc, or deselect the line, it takes another 3 seconds to refresh itself. You can even see the properties palette start at the top and go blank as it travels downward. Very slow process, I can not get anything done. IF I close my properties palette, it does not have the delay, but I can not work without it. When I reboot, it works fine for about 5-6 selections, then jams back up.
This seems to have just started recently. I have not changed any part of my system. Anyone have any ideas?Thanks!

Thanks for the reply. I have found this is a McAfee AV scanning issue. I have contracted McFee a fewl times will no luck. I must turn off "real time scanning" within McAfee and ACA works fine. If I can get a solution from them and I will repost. If not i must find another AV program. McAfee claimed it's ACA.problem.
I don't know if McAfee has this function or not, but I have added the installation folders of my AutoCAD products to the Exclusion list of my AV. You could try that if available.
Normal people believe that if it ain't broke, don't fix it.
Software Engineers believe that if it ain't broke, it doesn't have enough features yet.
I have not seen an exclusion list on McAfee's end. But so far , so good today. It is working properly without doing anything. Maybe McAfee has already updated it without my knowledge. The mcshield.exe (real time scanning) is currently using only 1% of the CPU and the virtual memory is a constant. Thanks everyone, again.
I just started having this issue and I'm running ACA 2011. I recall McAfee doing a software update the other day. If I turn "off" the real time scanning function my computer is "at risk". is there any manual update that you did with McAfee to fix the problem?

Unfortunately no, I haven't seen a solution. This
I also have this problem on two Gateway machines with Integrated Intel Graphics.
This is a NEW problem but we are not sure what triggered it. It started about 2 months ago.
So far, I have:
Reinstalled AutoCAD LT 2012 and SP1
Turned on Hardware Accelleration using 3dconfig.
Removed Apple Software
Removed Microsoft Silverlight
One machine is particularly stripped down so I am thinking it is a Windows 7 Problem. The reason for this is because I have another copy running on Windows XP Pro SP3 and the delay in writing and re-writing this pallete when objects are selected is about a third of the Windows 7 machines.
I do not run Mcafee but rather Kaspersky.
My next step is to uninstall Kaspersky and see if that helps but again, this is a new problem and I am acting a little desperatly as this is really reducing productivity.
Well I know exactly what causes the problem for me. It's McAfee" Real time scanning". If I turn it off. Everything is fine. I will turn it back on when I'm finished in ACA2012 and it might go a couple of days before it pops up again. I've learned to manage it manually. When my subscription to McAfee runs out, I will look for another AV.
Yes, you are correct. When I turn off System Watcher in KASPERSKY the problem corrects itself.
So what I have done is to go into application control and edit the setup for AutoCAD only and the problem is corrected and I can still have System Watcher on for everything else.
However, I am still bothered by the fact that, prior to the new year, this problem did not exist in the two machines with this software combo.
