I don't know if this is the proper place for this, but I am having a new issue.
Running office 2010 and Windows 7 Home Premium. 8GB Ram, i5 Processor.
Anyway, this just started within the last couple months.
If I open Excel and then go to >File>Open>*Document name*, it opens instantly. However if I double click on the document file (say its saved on my desktop) it takes about 30 seconds for Excel to open and then the document pops up. Excel takes a long time to open, it doesn't open and then hang on opening the document, it takes the program that long to open. But like I said, if I go to Start, Office, and click excel icon it pops up so fast I can't see it all happening! It also takes a long time for Word files to open, same scenerio as the excel files.
Secondly, and this might be related. When I click on hyperlinks in my e-mails (Windows Live Mail) it now takes them a while to open. At least 15 seconds with what appears as no activity going on, and then IE pops up and voila it opens.
I dunno what would have changed other than Windows Updates, but both problems are something I do a lot, so they are both annoying.
