Why is UpToDate® running slowly?

Several factors can cause UpToDate® to run more slowly than expected.

The most likely cause is an anti-virus program. You should temporarily disable the anti-virus program before starting UpToDate and see if that will improve the application's performance.

Likewise, other applications that are running when UpToDate is running may slow your computer down and impede performance.
