Excel 2010 takes an extremely long time to open attachments
Posted on 2011-02-17
We have recently upgraded to Exchange 2010 and office 2010 statndard on all of our workstations (XP Pro sp3). I have 1 user that is experiencing extremely long wait times (10 minutes) to open any attachments that are Word or Excel files. If they save the attachment to their desktop, it opens normally. Likewise I had the user forward the attachments to me, they opened normally directly from Outlook. I have tried every reasonalble solution I can find on Google. Changed the DDE settings, etc. I have also tried un-installing Office & re-installing it. No change. I am stumped. I may be forced to re-image the PC and start from scratch. I would prefer a less drastic solution.
Thanks in advance for any ideas you may have.
