MS WORD & EXCEL Slow to open workstation

By mwatson ·
I am experiencing issues with MS Word/Excel opening slowly on workstation. In excel I have changed the default file location (Tools>>options>>General tab) from pointing to network drive to local, this seems to resolve problem. Is the real issue network traffic and not word/excel. Thats my conclusion. This same process works with MS Word. Any ideas??

Make sure that FindFast is removed from the machine, and that Outlook is not journalizing. Both slow machines down noticeably .

Turn off the macro viruschecker under the tools when opening excel files over the network.

Network destination for folder can certianly cause this. Slowness in accessing server wiould cause applciation to open slowly. Also check the default printer. This resource is also examined when the applications are launched. Might need to checkfor any linked files too.
