25 secs to close down Microsoft Excel

By alan.robinson14 ·
On Win95, using Office 97, the cheap verison without "Access". when I press the "x" to close down Excel, the hourglass stays for 25 secs.

When I close "Word", it closes immedistly but I cannot start another "Word Doc" for 25 secs. Both are doing something at close down that takes an unnessary amount of time.

Nothing is running. Ctrl-alt-del show WinWord or Excel still active.

It's getting worse, ie was 15 secs, then 20 secs.

Anyone experienced similar, or know how to stop it.

According to Microoft Q167081...Could be the problem....good luck

To work around this problem, turn off the journalizing feature for the Microsoft Office 97 programs. To do this, use the following steps:
Start Microsoft Outlook.
On the Tools menu, click Options.
Click the Journal tab.
In the "Also record files from" list, clear all of the check boxes.
Click Apply, and then click OK.

and install SR-1 for Office 97
