If I open Word and paste text into it, there is a wait of about 7 seconds before the text appears. This delay seems independent of the amount of text being pasted, but is even longer if it contains any tables. This only happens when I first open Word. All subsequent pastes are almost instantaneous.

I am running an AMD 1Ghz with 128Mb RAM and a RAID HDD, so I don't think the problem is one of spec. The problem wasn't there when I first installed Word, but has appeared in the last few months. I have tried a "Repair Office" from the CD, but this has made no difference.

Any suggestions gratefully received.
