Windows 7: When outlook or word is open ->w7 x64 slow

29 Mar 2010   #31

Win 7 64 bit & 32 bit

Hi again Robert,

Many thanks for your efforts to help.

Fortunately an old memory surfaced this morning. One in a blue moon gets corrupted. If that were the problem it would affect both of my computers because I use the same (honed to my version of perfection over time) on both. I went in and changed to normal.old so that Word would automatically create a fresh version the next time I opened it. Eureka! Word now pops open instantly again! How it happened that got corrupted at the exact same time I did the Win 7 upgrade I guess I will never know.

Thanks again for your efforts.
