Question about Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition
I have Windows XP operating system. The Microsoft Word came installed on the computer when I bought it in 1999. Now, it takes literally forever to open the program: like 5-20 minutes. Once open, if I try to then open a file, that also takes forever.
I am pretty sure I update all microsoft programs when prompted to do so. I am open to any help and ideas out there.
I also had a problem with "Word Documents" taking 2-3 minutes + to open.
Finally tracked it down to a version of "Kodak Software" that I had recently installed - I even updated all of the Kodak Software off their website - still the same - "Word" very very slow.
I uninstalled the Kodak Software and the Word Documents then opened up at the normal speed.
You may have installed some software that causes this conflict - trial and error to find out which one.
Hope it helps.

If you are using the word version you acquired in 1999, it is time for an upgrade. While all the previous clarifications are worthwhile you may have a corrupted program. There can be many reasons for this. If the rest of your programs are operating with the performance you are accustomed to here is a NO cost solution.
Go to the Java site link http://www.java.com/en/about/openoffice.jsp. There you can download a full working edition of the most recent OpenOffice. This could meet your present and future needs.
