Since moving from windows 98 to Windows XP with service pack 2, I am having a strange problem with the drop down menus in both Word & Excel. They take an eternity to scroll down through the options. I am using Microsoft Office 98
Graham ®, i also ran office97 on XP Pro until i upgraded to Office XP
i agree with you about the memory issue, we all know windowsXP requires a huge ammount of memory to run well, if memory is limited then it would cause a slowdown in things like menus appearing, programs launching ect.
minimum memory for xp is 64mb (you would be stressed with so little ram), reccomended is 128mb but i would say 256 is the minimum i would put in a new build.
512mb is a good ammount to have, 768 is what i have and things got a lot better when i went from 512 to 768.
if you have plenty of memory, i would suggest uninstalling Office and after a reboot, install it again.
