Excel 2007 Slow Startup from an existing XLS or XLSX file

Guest

I’m having startup performance issues related to Excel 2007. The following
timings further describe this issue.
Without previously opening Excel:
A simple (30 column, 200 row) spreadsheet opened by clicking on the XLSX or
XLS file requires 60 – 62 seconds go open and display .
With excel open.
The same spreadsheets that required approximately 60 seconds to open in the
first example will now open in 2- 3 seconds
Time required to open Excel via Program Start (no spreadsheet), is very
quick, requiring approximately 2 seconds.
The computer I’m using is a Toshiba p15 S540 with 2 gigs of memory and 80
gigs of disk, defraged, with approximately 20 gigs of available disk space.
“About†shows version 2007 (12.0.4518.1014) (Office Ultimate 2007 -
upgrade). Uninstall and reinstall had no impact on the issue.
Any suggestions?

Thanks,
Dan Riker

I know it doesn't make sense, but if you are running anti-virus software,
can you temporarily disable its auto "scan when opening file" feature, and
then repeat your experiment? For safety reasons, I usually disconnect from
the web completely when disabling security software.
