    I get random beach balls in photoshop cs3 while doing the most mundane things like turning off a layer, moving an element, nothing complicated.

    These beachballs last for 30 seconds or more and are very annoying.

    Anyone experiencing this too??

    The only thing I've done in CS3 that's given me problems is Neat Image plugin sometimes goes to a spinning beachball when I change the camera profile after I've already applied the default profile. I'm a heavy user, and do a lot of compositing. I'd say do some system maintenance. Maybe check your scratch disk to see if there's some I/O issues or something? I'm on a G5 2.0 with 4GB RAM.

    depends what you doing really or how big the image is your working with, or you have a lot of other apps open in the background

    You might want to check and see how much free ram you have left.
    Sometimes the pages-out aren't reset for a long time and they build up eating the free ram, which also slows down everything.
    Restarting a computer every once in a while is a good thing.
