That another point of concern indeed, as JPPinto indicates a faulty or missing network connection can very easily make for big delays.
Could it be that the standard template you are using is stored on a network drive or mapped folder ?
Arno KosterCommented:
that could be because of a number of reasons, such as :

you are using a huge workbook or worksheet
a macro is activated on running or formatting in excel
your computer is low on memory or CPU power

is it possible to post your workbook here ?

It also happens when creating a new workbook and the computer has 3gb of memory and i have checked cpu usage already. I haven't check for macros running.
The rest of your Office applications run OK? This only happens with Excel? Try switching to another default printer and check if the problem remains.
