Windows 7: Aero features make Word 2002 edit/find dialog slow

Aero features make Word 2002 edit/find dialog slow

The Word 2002 edit/find dialog box flyout becomes abnormally slow if Aero features (ie "desktop composition") are enabled. It takes about 1.5 sec for the dialog box to open and move across the screen. Other dialog boxes are normally fast. The edit/find dialog in Excel 2002 is also fast.

Clearing the checkbox "desktop composition" in control panel | system | advanced system settings | advanced | performance will disable desktop composition, after which the edit/find dialog runs at normal speed.

Thank you very much for this tip. I just installed a copy of Office XP on my Win7 laptop and was annoyed by the very slow flyout of the Find dialog window. Your fix took care of the problem!
