    Have you installed the Office 2007 Technical Refresh? It doesn't work well
    in VISTA without it.

  3. I've never heard of it. What is it and how do I get it?

  4. BTW--I'm using Office 2003. Does this download apply to that? It says 2007?

    I'm sorry, guess I wasn't paying to much attention to the years. I was
    refering to Office 2007. I appologize for the confusion.

  6. Okay.
    So...any other ideas? I wonder if anyone else has had a problem with this.
    It seems ironic that only MS software has this issue. Word Perfect and Corel,
    etc. are fine.

    Ah, sorry.

    Before the Tech Refresh for Office 2007 hit, I was using Office 2003.

  12. Actually, I have some news since my last post. I have 2 Maxtor external
    drives, one of which is 3 years old. While it was showing up a week ago when
    I first got this system, it suddenly became "local drive" and I could no
    longer access it. I just unplugged both drives and voila, the delay has
    disappeared. I think the older of the drives, which contains all my videos,
    is about to take a dive : (
