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!
ACA 2012 sp1 with Win 7 Pro 64bit sp1

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.
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.
