Word 2002 Performance

By jspaz ·
I am running Word 2002 on new Gateway PC's (1.4 Hz, 256 MB RAM, 10/100 Intel NIC) running XP Professional. When I do a File/Open to our default document directory (very large) it takes approx. 40 seconds to display the file list.

Our old Pentium266 machines with 64 MB RAM and Windows 2000 bring up the file listing almost immediately.

I have tried various settings on the network card with no success.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Word 2002 Performance

Office Program Opens Slowly With Norton Installed Q262530

Check the printer. Is it available right away, or does the network have to be polled?

Try starting up with:

Winword.exe /a

Take a look at the Tool>Templates and Add-ins entries

Are there Workgroup templates on the network? use UNC paths and not mapped drive letters.

Don't use Preview as the default view.

Remove Speech if it was installed
