No because when you do New Contact a blank contact record is inserted into the database and you need to save it to delete it.

Actually back in the early versions of ACT! 2 the new contact screen was a temporary dialog and unless explicitely saved the added information was lost. At version 2.0.4 that was changed to adding a new blank contact to the database which continues to the present version. You can certainly make a feature request to change the way new contacts are added.

That seems to be mainly a system resource issue. In my experience restarting ACT! will sometimes make the problem go away. If that doesn't work try restarting the system. If both fail I would suspect the video driver.

If either of my first two suggestions didn't work, that would be the next step though I would first make sure you had the latest version of the video driver. Unfortunately there isn't a simple answer to your question. the change is make in Windows and the process is different for XP, Vista and Windows 7. The best is to go to the control panel and look for something related to graphics.
