Word and Outlook 2010 slow to open


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?
