Hi,



I have searched the forum and can't find reference to my problem, I hope someone can help.



I recently had to factory reset my laptop running Windows 7. I reloaded MS Office 2010 and now find that it takes forever to open a Word document. I have very little else running on the laptop and Word used to open really quickly, but now it is really slow.



Does anyone have any thoughts/suggestions?



Thanks

I only have Office 2010 loaded apart from the stuff that comes with the machine.

Make & model, version of Windows? How much RAM? How old is your computer?

It sounds like you have a lot of disk activity going on, but all I can do is to make a stab in the dark not knowing the above details.

My version of Office 2007 has an app called Office Diagnostics under Start -> All Programs -> Microsoft Office -> Microsoft Office Tools. If you have that, you should run it and see if it spots a problem.

Hey

Just to add to the above, can you use any other office product okay?



Excel for example.

Excel is part of Office. Try opening that.
