I am running Windows 7 and have experienced both problems.  I can't recall exactly when these problems started but the Feb./March time range sounds about right.

I'm running Windows 7 and I've never had problem number 2, but problem number 1 plenty of times.  But I just started running 7 (got a new computer) about 5/6 months ago so I can't say if it's a problem that just started.

I got the following post on from another GIS List I am on. Until I saw it I had not realized I has been experiencing the same behavior recently. I wonder if anyone else has experienced it as well. If so anyone figured out why?

This is a 2 fold query:

1.   I've been using Windows 7 since 2009.  But, in the last 3-5 months I, along with friends and colleagues, have noticed a spike in the
number of times application become "hung" with the common message at the end of the app's Title Bar that reads "(Not Responding)".  Sometime it will
correct and continue, at other times it will crash.  I NEVER saw this problem prior to about Feb. or March of this year.  Has anyone else noticed this spike?  Or, does anyone know what is causing it and if Microsoft is aware and working on the problem?  This occurs on a wide variety of computer types.

2.  When editing table records in ArcMap, has anyone experienced a long delay or 'drag' in the functionality of running Field Calculator or Calculate Geometry, which then spawns the problem described in #1?
