Office files slow to load RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am currently running Windows 7 Home Premium and Office 2007, and whenever I click on Office files in Windows Explorer from my PC hard drive they are very slow in opening (more than a minute some times).  This is not the case when I keep the application open (Word, Excel or PP) without any active file; when I do this the files open fairly quickly (under 5 seconds).  I have exhausted all the suggestions found on line, including eliminating the Office Validation Program, but the problem remains.  Any ideas?
