Windows 7: Office Word 2007 - Busy?

Office Word 2007 - Busy?

Hi everyone,

Whenever I open a Word document (blank or otherwise), then switch to another program, and then go back to Word there is a 6-7second delay before I can do anything to the page. During this wait, the Windows "Busy" icon appears.

This problem started last week, and it is really annoying.


No programs were removed/installed in the past three weeks.
I have tried removing and re-installing, but to no avail.
I have added the location to my anti-virus' exclusion list, again no effect.

This is the only program that has this problem. I have OneNote, Powerpoint and Excel have no delay. I also have some Office 2003 programs installed (Access, Outlook, Publisher) but as I have said this problem began happening last week for no apparent reason.

Any help/suggestions would be great!
Thanks in advance!

  • At the bottom of the window click on the GO button (Manage: COM Add-ins).
  • Un check any add-ins you don't need or think may be causing the lag.
  • Click on ok

@JMH

Thanks! That did the trick! The add-in that was causing the problem was an eXpertPDF add-in. Strange, though. eXpertPDF was installed 3 weeks ago, yet no problem occurred until last week.

Anyway, problem solved.

Thanks again for your help!
