I think it has to be your machine. I just double clicked on a tag and it
opened before I could count to three. I would say a little over a second. I
have 25,000+ people in my database. My sentence structures are large, and I
used a tag with a long memo. (Which TMG had to load in order to display the
I am going to be honest with you. A few years ago the kids had a problem
with Trojans on their machines. We removed Adaware and haven't had one
since. I just don't trust Adaware anymore. I would disable the spyware
programs and see if you see any performance improvement. I can't say whether
you will or not, but I think you should be seeing TMG 7 working a lot faster
than you describe.
I only have one dataset in my project, so I don't know if having 8 could be
part of your issue.
If you go to FILE>MAINTENANCE>PERFORMANCE RECOMENDATIONS, it will give you
some ideas of what is slowing TMG down.

Subject: [TMG] Performance issue worsens with V7?
Ever since buying V6 I've experienced significant delays in taking certain
actions with TMG - for example selecting a TAG. I had hoped that there
would be performance improvements with V7 but am finding the opposite. For
example - it takes > 10 seconds from selecting a TAG (e.g. Birth
Registration) to the window appearing. Now - if I select a location within
that TAG (e.g. L3) then it takes about the same until I can enter the data
(once the first location field has been populated there is no delay before I
can populate the others).
I am using XP Pro SP2 on a Dell Latitude D600 Laptop (1.4GHz, 768MB RAM,
30GB disk). The disk has about 3GB spare and is regularly defragmented. I
use Adaware, Spybot S&D, TrendMicro "Office Scan". Upgrading the memory is
not an option (It doesn't belong to me).
I'm using V7. I have about 3,000 people in the project which has eight data
sets. [I understand this to be a very small project.] I have run all the
TMG maintenance tools.
I have quite complex Access databases on the PC with millions of records on
dozens of tables, with forms and reports - about 4GB in size - and these
seem to run significantly quicker.
Any ideas? Are there any registry settings I need to tweak to improve the
