Slow Program Opening

  luckylittler 18:48 08 Jan 2004

I have recently noticed that whilst I am connected to the internet, when opening another program, say a Word Doc or Excel Doc, it takes an extremley long time to open. When I am offline the program opens normally. It is though for some reason, when I am opening one of these programs it is trying to connect to the net for some reason. One other point, I am running Norton Virus software and in the bottom left hand corner of the opening program (word as an example) it says 'requesting virus scan' this is after I have waited a long time for the programme to open - I then have to wait further whilst it requests the virus scan. Any ideas?
