SYMPTOMS

When you try to work in Microsoft Office OneNote 2003, OneNote 2003 may run slow or appear to stop responding.

Note Other Microsoft Windows programs may also appear to run slow when this problem occurs. If you view the CPU usage on your computer, the CPU usage may approach 100 percent usage. To view the CPU usage on your computer, press CTRL+ALT+DEL and then view the Status bar of Windows Task Manager.
