OneNote 2010 Freezing

This question is answered This question is answered

Office OneNote 2010 has been acting funny.

It freezes & on occasion hogs a lot of processor power.

Anyone else having trouble?

Any solutions?

  • I figured out the fix for XP.

    1. In OneNote, click on the File tab,

    2. Click on Options,

    3. Click on Save & Back-Up,

    4. Click on 'Optimize All Files Now',

    5. Wait for a few minutes to finish,

    6. Close OneNote & re-open,

    7. Open Task Manager & watch memory usage for ONENOTE.EXE.

    Dramatic difference!!!

    You can try these actions.

    In the sart menue, in the search programs and files box, search "run".

    and run this command: onenote.exe /safeboot

     

    I also refered to this article.

  • I am running XP & onenote.exe/safeboot does not work.

    OneNote has become a memory hog. I hope there is a way to minimize this because I use it a lot.
