    I have what seems to be a perfectly good installation of XP x64 with 8 GB of
    RAM, all of which is reported everywhere. It boots and shuts down snappily.

    My image viewer pulls up the next 24 MB image almost before I have released the
    mouse button, and Acrobat does the same with the next page.

    However CAD and spreadsheet show long delays with CPU maxing out after every
    affirmative mouse click.

    I have already cleaned out old files and defragged the drive. The drive LED
    indicates no stress. Task manager shows no resource hogs.

    Is there anything else in Windows I should look at?

    It would appear you need a faster CPU. The two programs you mention require
    heavy cpu cycles to process.
