Slow to close word docs

  Lady Lara 14:04 02 Apr 2005

PC opens word documents (and excel) quite quickly but whe i close it it takes 30-40 secs to close and often hangs.

I have upgraded Ram and done adaware and spybot etc but still the same.... Any ideas please?

Which version of Word?

Is Excel slow to close as well?

word and excel 97. Old version i know.... but I have noticed something different happening...

If I open a word/excel file from one location using Win Explorere it will open and close ok.

If I open a file from another location using Windows Explorer then it takes ages to close but is ok when opening.

Defrag maybe?

Possibly click here click here but a defrag can't do any harm.

I recently had some problems with word (using office 97) see click here

As you will see, SR-1 seems to have cleared it up and fixed the problem (although I still don't know why it suddenly went pear-shaped in the first place!).

If you don't have it already maybe SR-1 will cure your problems too!
