I have a new computer which should be 4x as fast as my old one. I am using Win XP home and opening word, access or excel takes much longer than they did before. Internet connections are quicker. Any suggestions?

If you are running Symantec Antivirus go into misc. and uncheck office plug in scan.

Perhaps other virus scanners do the same
