RocketDock Problems

I am using the program rocketdock (from rocketdock.com) and it makes the computer lag like crazy. It only uses 10mb of ram (I have 2GB of ram) so I don't see why it runs so slow. Any solutions?

Besides the obvious dont use rocketdock, could you go into event viewer (type event viewer in search) and see what errors in the app tab refer to rocketdock. If there are could you use the snipping tool (type that in search) to make a scrnshot of one, nd upload it to us.

there are none in the apps tab referring to rocketdock. I tried using a different dock called objectdock and it has the same effect of rocketdock, so I don't think it has anything to do with the program. oh well. I'll just have to live without rocketdock. =[

I tried it and I kept having to show desktop to get to it. If you want to do more digging. look for any errors in event viewr.

maybe it's your ageing graphics card that can't handle aero and dock at your high resolution?

I solved this problem by setting the theme to "Blank", it seems to be large style backgrounds that caused this for me
