    Slow Opening Office Programs (Windows XP (SP 2)/Of

    I'm sure others have had this problem so I hope there's a simple solution. I installed and ran all the features of System Mechanic 6. It seemed to perform as it should. However, now when I'm in Windows Explorer and double click on a Word, Excel or Access file, it takes about 4-5 seconds to load; used to take 1-2 seconds. Also, my Popup blocker was working fine (in Firefox) before installing SM6; now it does block popups but still leaves a link on the TaskBar and some popups it lets through. Any Ideas or solutions would be greatly appreciated. Maybe there's an Office update I need. Thanks in advance for any help

    I am not sure why you would have a slow down in your office applications or why the Pop up blocker doesn't work as well as it did, but if you used System Mechanic, did you make a back up of your registry before making any changes? On the Home page of System Mechanic, at the bottom, there should be a reminder about backing up your system Registry. Or you can find it under the Repair page by clicking on the little down arrow next to Repair and Clean the Registry. This is also the place to go to Restore the Registry from a back up that you made. That's what I would try first.

    I guess another option would be taking your Win XP computer back to an earlier Restore Point that was made before you changed anything with System Mechanic?

    These are just my <img src=/S/2cents.gif border=0 alt=2cents width=15 height=15> worth and maybe another lounger will post a better solution to your problem. So keep checking until you see something that will help your situation! <img src=/S/yep.gif border=0 alt=yep width=15 height=15>
