I have Office 2010 professional plus 32 bit edition on Vista Business 32 bit edition and have used for several months.
About 3 weeks ago a new problem started. Word and Outlook take a long time to open. Word does not open at all for close to a minute, while Outlook will open. However when trying to access an email in Outlook, it takes a long time. Once they are "active", they both appear to work fine. It appears to be only at startup.
I have researched the web and Microsoft database. I have tried to use the Microsoft diagnostics utilities (which says nothing is wrong) and I have searched these forums.
I have opened them in Safemode and conducted a clean boot.
However the problem still persists. Can anybody help?
