Opening Office ( Word, Excel, etc) Documents are very slow by
double-clicking and at the time of saving it takes a long time to
save(more than a min). All excel files are not mor than 1MB.

I have a similar problem on my computer as well. Does anyone have a
solution for this? My excel sheets have no formulas or calculations. My
computer now take more than one minute to load a small excel file. This
problem is new and I only start to experience it three weeks ago. I don't
recall installing any new software.

Default Opening Office ( Word, Excel, etc) Documents are very slow by

when i double click on a file in "My Documents" (for example), the file takes
an entire minute to load, but i have found that opening word or excel first
then clicking the "open" button and browsing to the file opens it instantly.

This is really annoying because i prefer to just click on a document i see
instead of having to browse to it

I have 2007 office installed on 3 computers- two desktops and a laptop.
only my laptop does this not the desktops. i also installed office service
pack 1- no help there

Help would be much appreciated

Try this
1.) Open My Computer.
2.) Go to Tools - Folder Options, and click on File Types.
3.) Find the extension of the file in question (XLS, DOC, etc.)
4.) Highlight the extension, and click \"Advanced.\"
5.) Highlight the \"Open\" Action, and click \"Edit\
6.) Click into the \"Application used...\" field, and scroll to the end
of
the command.
7.) Put a space at the end, and type in \"%1\" (With the quotes.)
8.) Uncheck \"Use DDE.\"
9.) Click \"OK.\"
:: ::
Open Tools, Options, and check "Ignore other applications that use DDE"

rcleary,
I did the steps you listed and it has created other, bigger problems
for me. I can't edit the "%1" back out of the command line, it keeps
reappearing no matter what I do to it. Do you know how to reverse these
steps??

Once you make the change via the explorer shell, you have to edit the
registry setting to revert it back to the way it was. This is per a MS
article, not just me.

This is the key name you need to go to to remove the "%1"

HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Excel.Sheet.8\shell\New\command

By the way, if you didn't use the quotes in the command line you'll get
"file not found errors."
