What causes Windows Microsoft Word to take long to upload and shutdown. I had a sizeable amount of Word files and removed half of them, but still to no avail, it takes a long time to load up to the point where i have lost patience and went back to using Wordpad, which is not what I want to use. Any help will be welcomed in this matter.

the hard drive could be heavily fragmented which causes Windows to slow down and takes large applications longer to start. Run the disk defragmenter:
Start >> All Programs >> Accessories >> System Tools >> Disk Defragmenter

Thanks, will give it a go, but while we are on the subject of Microsoft Word, what does the term "Global Template" signify?

Global templates
If the reason for asking the question is this.
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/291352

then this is the problem
Be careful when choosing to load global templates automatically. Configuring your system to load global templates each time Word starts uses up system memory and slows Word startup.

See this
http://office.micros...A001137306.aspx

Cancel the Global templates following the advice and all should be OK
as listed below BUT it is in that link above.

Unloading global templates
By default, global templates are unloaded (but not removed) when you exit Word, unless you placed the global template in your Word Startup folder. But if you prefer, you can unload global templates before then. When you finish with a global template, you can unload it or remove it from the global template list. Note that neither action deletes the template file; unloading and removing a global template from the global template list merely stops the template from serving as a global template.

To unload a global template, click Templates and Add-Ins on the Tools menu, and do either of the following:

  • Clear the check box next to the template's name in the Global templates and add-ins list to stop using the global template.
  • Select the global template in the Checked items are currently loaded list, and then click Remove to stop using the global template and to remove the template from the list.
Note The Remove button in the Templates and Add-ins dialog box is unavailable when the global template you select to remove is stored in your Startup folder. To work around this, cut and paste the template from the Startup folder to a new location, or, if you have another copy of the template, simply delete the template from the Startup folder.
