slow running excel macros

My PC at work used Win98 (now upgraded to Win2000Prof) running Excel 2000. Pentium 3 with 256MB ram.
Home PC runs XPHome with 512MB ram and Athlon XP1600 running Excel XP.
Why does the same macro run on the work PC run tens of times faster than the one at home? What takes seconds at work (either version of windows) takes minutes (I've timed it!) at home.
Any ideas??
Thanks.

Could you post the macro code here please?

I run a variety of macros for my work with different functionalities. The problem is universal and not confined to a particular macro or type of Excel activity.
