When I use the "Open File" command and box in Microsoft Word 2007 I am having issues.
When I click on a different folder it takes over a minute to change to that folder, then I click on a sub-folder and it takes another minute and so on and so on until I get to the folder that my files are in which when selected open without delay.

Quite often the "Initializing Root Folders" warning displays with bars moving across to show that it is doing something

Do I have a problem with my indexing or is the problem else where perhaps the wrong setting in "Services"

Yours hopefully

This behaviour is usually caused for one of two reasons:

1) Copious amounts of files/folders - as in too many.
2) Shortcuts to documents or stuff located on removable drives that are not present. Invalid shortcuts tend to hang a lot of programs since Windows has to process the lot.
