Windows 7: Slow opening .tiff link

01 Jun 2010   #1

Windows 7
Slow opening .tiff link

Clicking on link that opens a tiff file is quick the first time then becomes extremely slow when opening the second, third and fourth. If I wait about a minute the next tiff I click on opens fast then gets slow again with any after that. I have opened the same images from my Windows XP and no speed issues. The file size of each tiff is the same and does not appear to be a factor.
Any ideas what changed from XP to 7 that could have caused this ?

Also, on the Windows 7 PC if I choose to save the file first then open it then it is fast.

This is a rather belated reply but it is not clear from Tkiely11's original question what program he or she is using to open the TIFF files.

If Tkiely11 is using Microsoft Office Document Imaging, which can be made to work in Windows 7, I also get the same slowing of TIFF opening. I have tried alternatives - not all of the ones on Jacee's list - but the ones I have tried do not have the useful property which MODI has of doing OCR on sections of text highlighted.

Irfanview does not have OCR on selected text either. Do you have any ideas on other programs which can open TIFF files and which also perform OCR just on selected text. There are programs that perform OCR on pages and the whole document but I have not found any that just do the text selected on the TIFF image.

Possible Solution

I believe that by disabling the "Tablet PC Input Service" that this problem will be resolved.
