Dreamweaver CS3 on Vista slows to a halt when typing or adding text.

My laptop is a Vista machine with 4gb ram. I Just replaced Dreamweaver MX, which I use for years on my XP box and on this laptop.
I was having problems with MX not assigning tables correctly and was advised that since it was older and not written for Vista, I would need to upgrade to a Vista-compatible version.
I bought CS3. That fixed the tables problem, but the inputting of text is SO SLOW. If you try to manually type it in, after the first character it just "thinks about it" and locks up the whole program for 2-10 minutes. Yes, thats 2-10 minutes.
Same thing with pasting text. ctrl+v equals a similar wait.
it will eventually do it, but to enter in 3 paragraphs is taking somewhere just under an hour.
Dreamweaver is useless to me like this, but I paid a lot of money for it, so I'd really like to find a fix.
