You have something else on the laptop (not part of the factory preload) that is causing you problems. I have no such issues... It's not hardware since it's only happening with certain apps for you.
Download and burn a Linux "live CD" (like Ubuntu) and see if you have the same problem there - this will totally rule out hardware for you.

Thanks for your input. I'm leaving for Europe in the morning so won't be able to try your suggestion until I return in a week. FYI, I only listed four programs, two Microsoft and two Adobe, to indicate the issue wasn't limited to a specific set of software. For what it's worth, other than the Office 2007 applications, the software on my W500 is a subset of the software that ran without problem on my T43p that it replaces (a subset because I don't need software for an external USB webcam, an old scanner, etc.). Assuming the problem is caused by some piece of software running in the background, does anyone have some good ways of finding the bad actor?
