I find that when I run xfire microsoft office 12 starts running slow with regards to typing, same thing with wmp search bar, kinda strange, doesn't affect anything else. It isn't my specs, and xfire doesn't seem to be running heavy or anything. Any suggestions?
I don't spend enough time here

When you run any program it takes up more random access memory and cpu space. duh exit out stuff you dont need
sigh, I don't think xfire and office running on 4gb of RAM and core 2 quad q6600 would or should cause any slowdowns at all, nor did it in the past. I only run "stuff" I need. Like I said, the processes aren't near high enough to cause any hanging. Not so "duh" actually. Anyway, it actually happens randomly, sometimes everything will be fine with xfire running, and sometimes the two apps I mentioned above will experience 'type lag'.
My face hurts.

It is possible that certain combinations of softwares can cause slowdowns together for some pcs. Just because you have 4 gigs of ram and a dual core doesn't mean you won't have issues.
Some softwares are not written to take advantage of dual core. Battlefield2 was that way, for it to run you had to turn the affinity to one.
It isn't always how many processes you have running either. Could be how much they are sucking up.
The hardware was the indicator that it wasn't a process issue. I believe it to be a software issue, but can't figure out what the fix could be.
