Dear all,

I installed TexPoint 3.3.1 on PowerPoint 2007 on a Windows 7-64bit
machine. I use MikTex.
TexPoint works - but compiling a LaTex equations takes 5-10 seconds.
This was much faster in previous versions.
When I switch of my virus scanner (F-Secure with Deep guard) things go faster.

Also opening an existing TexPoint-Formula by double-clicking on the
corresponding image does not work anymore;
I have to use the menu.

Does anybody of you had similar expieriences?
What could be going wrong in my system?
