Office 2007 Word Docs Slow opening Over VPN

ggrabows asked
Last Modified: 2012-05-09
Client is working from a remote office over VPN connection.  Even simple 1 paragraph Word Docs open & save slowly over the VPN (15 seconds or longer).  This occurs no matter if the client opens files from within MS Word or from File Browser window. Documents opened or saved locally have quick response.  Other file types over the VPN seem to open quickly.

Have tried:
Word Options/Advanced tab – Checking “Copy remotely stored files onto your computer & update remote file when saving”
Control Panel – Folders View – Unchecking Automatically search for files & folders

Client has is running Windows 7 Pro.  
MS Office 2007.
Windows based VPN

Appreciate any help.
