Scheduling activity take 30+ seconds

We are running Act 2008 in our office. We all share a database on a server.  One of the computers has an issue with Act that no one else has. When you click "OK" after setting or changing an Activity it takes about 30+ seconds or so for it to complete.  For the other 7 computers in the office it take the most 2-3 seconds.  Can't for the life of me figure out what's going on. The effected computer has 1G ram and a 512G video card as well as plenty of hard drive space. In fact that computer is one of the most powerful ones in the office.

 

Would appreciate any help with this. Thanks in advance.

No one experience this before or have any suggestions?

Most likely a problem with the network connection on that system.

Is it as slow if using the demo database?

How about if a different ACT! user logs into ACT! on that machine?

It is not as slow when using the Act Demo DB. 

 

It is as slow on our DB no matter who logs on but only that computer.

Re: Scheduling activity take 30+ seconds

So, it's computer based... three options:

1. Low RAM

2. Slow hard drive

3. poor network connection
