ArcMap 10.7 is performing processing tools but map display is stuck

Question asked by ori_g_inal on Dec 24, 2019

Hello, I recently acquired a new computer for the purpose of working more efficiently with ArcGIS (I have version 10.7).

The computer has an i7 core and 8 GB of RAM (I am not very tech savvy so I don't what other details to point out atm).

I am working with shapefiles only and have removed basemaps.

When I use geo-processing tools everything works great but when I want to zoom in on a shape file or add/remove the display of a shapefile on the map - the map display just freezes (for several minutes). 

What could be the problem? What could be the solution?


Many thanks!
