SInce upgrading to Office XP, it takes significantly longer for Word to boot and load a document, when I double-click that document in Explorer or as an attachment to an email in Outlook. Frequently I get a file system timeout error.

The immediate solution is to open Word first, then load the document, but this 2-step process is a pain. I know that perhaps the best solution would be a hardware upgrade, but is there perhaps a workaround by changing the Windows timeout period so that the document has more time to load? Anyone know how to do that?
