Recently, I have been having awful performance with ArcMAP 10.2 It has become so awful, that after loading a basemap, the program becomes unresponsive.
If I click File->Add Data-> Add Basemap->Topographic then it usually takes about 25 seconds to load the map (if it loads at all.) Most of the time, it just says "Cancelled" in the lower left corner. Nothing will load, the data frame remains blank, and eventually the program will go opaque and say (Not Responding) across the top.
My computer hasn't ever gone past about 10% CPU usage when doing anything with Arc, and my Memory usage is steady at about 3.6gb.
My computer runs all other programs fine (Maschine, Photoshop, Stream, Reaktor, etc).
2-500gb 7200rpm HDD (Raid 0)
Powecolor HD 7970
Windows 7 Home Ultimate
Can I set up an error log to track what da heck is going on? This is quite possibly the buggiest, laggiest program I've ever used.
