Word 2013 is extremely slow RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    I've used Word 2013 during several months without any problem.

    Yesterday, I have installed a big update for Visual Studio 2015: since it I encounter recurrent problems with Word 2013...

    For example, when I select text or add items (table, form, ...) in a document, Word is freezing during 5 seconds. I can see that the processor is highly sollicited during this time.

    After 5 seconds I can edit my document again, but this problem occurs each time I select text or add a table in Word...

    I also tried some suggestions that I've found on other threads, but without any result:

    • repair Office
    • uninstall and reinstall Word
    • disable "hardware graphics acceleration"
    • launch a scan with antivirus
    • launch Word in "safe mode"

    Would you have an idea? I can't use Word in these conditions...

    I use Windows Pro 8.1 on a Dell Vostro (Core i7 @ 2.20 GHz, 16 Go RAM, SSD HD).

    Thank you.
