I have having trouble with MS Word. It is taking sometimes up to 45 seconds to open up a Microsoft Word Document. I realize alot of variables can go into why it might take so long but let me give you some reasons why It shouldn't be.
The computer has
Windows XP PRo
It has been declared Malware free by Deckard
In comparison Microsoft Excel Documents take about 3 seconds to open up.
I have tried Word docs stored locally on the computer vs. normally we store them on the network. No difference. No other computer on the network has this kind of problem.
I have reinstalled Windows completly twice over the life of this computer (3 years) to solve this exact same problem. It ususally fixes it for about a year or so.
Before I had tried reinstalling Office but it never helped. I could only reinstall windows completely for it to be fixed.
I am not looking forward to having to do a complete reinstall so I thought I would ask here if any one might know of why MS WORD has become so slow?
