    Umm... has it always taken this long, or only recently? Did you install anything new? What speed is your computer?

    PIII 333Mhz. This has been going on for awhile and I haven't intalled anything recently. Would it make a difference if I had a large number of .doc files?

    A couple of things I thought of that could cause this:
    • FindFast could be doing something (re-indexing) when you close Word. Go into Control Panel and disable FindFast--all it does is slow down your PC
    • You could have a macro virus. If you have a properly configured, up to date antivirus program running you will probably know this. If not, I recommend getting one.
    If you suspect a virus and don't have a virus scanner, feel free to create a small Word document and email it to me, and I'll scan it for you.
