    Word files taking a while to load (Office 97)

    What would cause Word to open files slowly? Files opened directly from the computer. How could I fix it? I've tried Defraging.

    Are all files opening slowly?

    Just the first one?

    Some, but not others?

    Which operating system are you using? Are you on a network?

    All files are opening slowly. Win2k, and yes the user is on a network, but the files are loading localling. Office 97 is install locally also.

    One thing that causes Word to open slowly is having a virus checker set to check all documents as they open. I have Norton Anti-virus 2000 on a Win2000Pro machine and each time I open a document a message appears in the Word task bar at the bottom of the page saying something like "calling for virus check".

    I would rather wait than get a virus so I accept it - so check whether you have your virus checker set to check Word - you do have a virus checker don't you?
