I'm not quite sure when it began, but MS Word is starting very slowly these days. When I double-click the icon, immediately a new window opens and it shows the blue title bar of MS Word. It also shows a white page but no toolbars and no cursor. The mouse pointer changes to the sandtimer. However, the Task Manager shows no CPU activity and no IO activity. This will last for some 10 seconds. Then Word suddenly continues and is ready for work in a second.
All other Office applications start quickly, no complaints.
I have already tried to delete Normal.dot but that did not improve anything.
Anyone any suggestions?
MS Office 11 Build 5604
Windows XP Pro 5.1.2600 SP 2 Build 2600
