Well, I may have found a simple solution after all. All I did was switch the monitor resolution and recalibrate it. Everything's been fine since. Of course, I haven't tried switching it back . . .

Sorry to say it, but that didn't work either.
I've done everything short of a clean install, and I don't want to have to do that (mainly because I'd prefer to track the problem down).

I don't know about this. Word still hovers around 10% of CPU usage for me no matter what. Should Word doing absolutely nothing really take up more CPU cycles than an active iTunes?

Hey Carbon,
