Office 2007 extremely slow copy/paste under Win 7 RRS feed

  • Question

  • The issue is being seen in both Word and Excel - Any copy/cut/paste operation takes as much as 20 seconds.  It doesn't matter on the size of the document, new or old.  It has reached the point where it is getting quicker to retype the text then to use the built in feature. 

    I've tried a number of fixes (cleaning out the styles, going through and dropping old software, turning off add-ons/ extensions in the browser - I use both Chrome and IE 10.)  My computer is up to date WRT latest updates.

    I am using the latest version of Norton AV.

    I'm looking for other suggestions?

  • I have a long running issue with cut and paste in office 2007 and office 2010 on windows 7.

    The only thing that works is when I close outlook the problem goes away.

    Does the same thing happen for you?

    regards, Eric

  • Nothing to do with Outlook here - I generally have both Chrome and IE open, but typically not Outlook.  I use Web interfaces for most of my e-mail work.
