Why does Word 2003 take a long time to open and close, when Excel 2003 does not?

When I open Word 2003 from the desktop icon, it takes about 30 seconds before I can begin typing in a new document.  When I close Word 2003, it takes about 30 seconds for the program to close.

Yet, when I click on Excel 2003 from the desktop icon, it takes about 2 seconds to open, and 2 seconds to close.

Why does Word 2003 take so long and how can I speed things up?

Thank you.
