    Word Slowdown (Word 2002)

    My Word app has slowed significantly in everything. It takes a lot longer than in the past to start, to open files, to save files, etc. If, when it starts, I click on the open page too soon it turns white and fills the screen and everything is frozen until it's ready to accept direction. The rest of the office suite is fine. I've tried "detect and repair." Don't know what else to try at this point except to reinstall the app. Anyone have any suggestions?

    Check out Phil Rabichow's <!post=Systematic Approach to Behavioral Problems in Word (97/2000),197827>Systematic Approach to Behavioral Problems in Word (97/2000)<!/post>.

    Also, if you have Norton / Symantec Anti Virus, make sure the Office Plug-in is disabled (open the main window of the anti virus app, click Options, then Miscellaneous.)
