I have Office Premium 2008 SP2.1 installed. It can take up to five minutes for it to open. All other software opens quickly. While 2008 is slower than 2007, it works okay as far as opening/creating/editing files. BTW, there is very little CPU usage while it is loading.

SW 2007 took 15 sec to load the first time. I closed it and opened it again..second opening took 5 seconds.

Second opening of 2008 took 42 seconds. I don't have a hard time for first opening but it is at least a couple minutes

Computer is running Windows XP 32bit SP2, Core2Duo 6400 @ 2.13GHz
2GB ram, plenty of empty space on the hard drive

any ideas?
