After I have minimized ACT or have gone to another application and then click on the ACT tab on the taskbar it will sometimes maximize but the whole screen will not be there, it will sort of freeze with just a partial screen loaded and then a few seconds later the entire screen will be drawn. Today however, I clicked on the taskbar button and nothing happened. I had to end the process and then re-start ACT.
I have the following system:
ACT! by Sage 2009 (11.0) Version 126.96.36.1997
CPU Intel(R) Pentium(R) D CPU 3.40GHz
RAM: 2.99 GB.
WIN XP SP3
Microsoft SQL Server 2005
I have not installed the infamous update SQL Server 2005 sp2 security update KB948109

I'm also having the same experience with 2009. Also find it slow when clearing activities from the alarms screen.
MY computer is running XP and I have 2meg of ram.
We need better performance...........
I have installed the update SQL Server 2005 sp2 security update KB948109

I am also having problems with 2009 being slow. I have a pentium 4 1.5GH, 1 Gig of Ram. and am running XP Pro. I was going to add a Gig of memory, but I see one of the earlier posters has two gig and is also having the problem.
I notice the lag when I go between my task list and my contacts. My DB is still relatively small at just over 300 contacts, so I am really worried about how this is going to lag whem my DB starts to get large.
It seems to me this newer version of Act has alot of bells and whistles ie the dashboard. Are these what is slowing things down, and if so can some of these features be turned off?
Any other solutions?
Any help would be appreciated

I am experiencing the same problem as yourself. Leave machine idle for some time or could infact be working in Act and then it just freezes. It looks like its trying to load up the main page but you only see the outlines of the interface. Did you manage to fix?
