When I open Ms Word it takes about half a minute to open.If I close it completely and then reopen it, it opens almost instantly. When I use other pcs Word seems to open as quickly as mine at the second attempt. Is there anything I can do about this slow speed. Windows XP Home 30 gig hd Ram 256 I've defragged recently and cleaned registry with xp medic and other programs seem to be running fine- at normal speed.
Hi, I am not an expert on Word, or anything else for that matter, but, my Word used to behave similarly - until I noticed that at the bottom there was a message saying something like 'checking the page for viruses' or something like that, can't remember exact wording. I manage to stop that happening, then Word did open quicker. Sorry, getting a bit old, I can't remember details.
