Default How can I get my spreadsheets to open faster?

When I click my excel icon the hour glass just sits there for a long time
before the spreadsheet opens. It didn't do that before.

How long is a long time? 10 seconds or 3 minutes?

"before" what?

A windows update?

Before your TIF and Temp folders got full of crap?

Before you checked six more add-ins to load?

See Chip Pearson's site for troubleshooting startup, not just startup errors,
but slow starts as well.

You can find some reasons for slow open and close at

and also at David McRitchie's site

The icon sits there for about 3 minutes, then the spreadsheet appears. When
I save changes to a spreadsheet it also takes about three minutes to
complete. How can I get it to respond faster like it used to do?
