I give up. I used to love ACDSee, the Windows image viewer program. I used version 5.0 for a long time and have been recommending it too everyone. It is full featured, and most importantly, fast. Version 6.0 came out and I upgraded. What a disappointment ! It is so slow that it is unusable. There seems to be no solution in sight. So I just uninstalled 6.0 and down graded back to 5.0. I do not know if you can buy the old version anymore. But don't get ACDSee 6.0. You will probably be as disappointed as me.
