Hello Ddongvox and welcome to Seven Forums.

It would help if you told us your system specs. At the top of any Forum page, click on "User CP". Then in the left column click on "Edit System Spec". In the scetion for make/model of computer, also indicate if it's a laptop, desktop, tablet, etc.

System Info - See Your System Specs

Depending on how old your Vaio is, you may be able to speed things up with just some general maintenance tasks. My recommendations are:

1. Do a full scan with your updated anti-virus suite. No anti-malware product is 100% effective 100% of the time. (If there was such a thing we'd all be using it.) Run an additional on-demand scan with any of these free products. The more scans you run (one at a time!) the more likely your computer is not infected.

Malwarebytes

ESET Online Scanner

SuperAntispyware

HitmanPro 3 - SurfRight

2. If you don't use hibernation, disable it.

Hibernate - Enable or Disable

3. Run Disk Cleanup to include deleting any unnecessary system files (Step 5.)

Disk Cleanup - Open and Use

4. Run Disk Defragmenter.

Disk Defragmenter - Open and Use

5. Go through this list for additional optimizing suggestions. Not everything will apply to you and you don't have to do anything else if you don't want to. But definitely do the four things above.

Please post back if anything helped or not.

Glad to hear your startup issues seem to be solved.

Now let's check for any damaged or corrupt system files by running a system file checker scan from an elevated command prompt (option two.) If problems are found, run the scan 3 times and reboot the computer after each scan.

SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker

You can also try to repair Microsoft Office on the off chance it has damaged or corrupt files and is making Word slow to respond. These guides explain the repair procedure for Office 2007 and Office 2010.
