Long Delays opening Word and Excel from Outlook

ANGELA11 used Ask the Experts™
Hello Experts,

t takes a long time to bring up a MS word or excel doc from outlook.

I am running Outlook 2007. This is a brand new Dell 3400 laptop. It takes a
long time average 3+ minutes to bring (double clicks) up an excel or word
attachment doc.

Please advise as soon as possible what i can do to fix this.

Many thanks,
