Glad to see I’m not the only one experiencing this. My Toad 10.1 install from a few weeks ago is S-L-O-W compared to Toad 9.7. I did the Advisor in the help menu as suggested, but nothing of substance.
Examples: It now takes a full minute (I timed it) to bring up Toad the first time. This is with a minimum of other apps running on a machine that has not significantly changed since my Toad 9.7.
If I open a second Toad session, oh boy…my system locks down with the appearance of nothing happening. I can wave my mouse pointer around, but EVERYTHING is frozen for the requisite minute or so.
Occasionally my PC will freeze like this for 10 to 15 seconds even without trying to start another Toad session. None of this happened until the Toad 10 install.
Like Alison, I have Windows XP SP3 with 2GB RAM. I did in upgrade from 9.7. I’ve been using TOAD for about 8 years; never seen one slow things down this much.
