excel 2000 and long time to load programme

  notnef 22:49 03 Mar 2003

over the last week or so, it takes over a minute to get into EXcel 2000. I use windows 98.

I have tried to exclude the virus check but that does not work.

once I get into the programme and try to get into the folder and file, it comes up with an error message that says the file does not exist or has been changed.

if I double click onto the file again, I can then get into the file.

any thoughts.

as if some files have become corrupted, or moved. Have you run the detect and repair tool in Excel? You'll find it if you click on the help menu. Make sure you have the Microsoft Office 2000 CD in the drive before you run detect and repair.

If that doesn't work, run the system file checker in Windows 98 - you'll need the Win98 CD in the drive when you do it.
