I have no idea what has taken place. Word and Excel files take forever to open, yet PowerPoint or Access remain quick and responsive. I removed Office 2000 and reloaded with no luck. Along with this problem I now have a pop up window issue that recently appeared about the same time Word and Excel became so slow. I use LavaSoft Ad-Aware 6.0 constantly and Spybot, but neither of them have found anything that seems to be the culprit. Is there anything I can do? I've made so many changes to the registry it's a miracle the box still boots up and runs. I realy don't want to reformat and reinstall XP...........any suggestions anyone?
