Office 2013 slow to do everything ... new PC with win 7 and 4 gigs ram - all else ok

New install.
Worked ok for a week or so, now takes ages to do anything "sluggish" is how the user describes it.


Poss causes / fixs ?

If the .pst is too large I know how to split it.

Aside from that what can i do?

He is pop.  Is IMAP significantly faster?  - last resort to do this, Id prefer no to swap to IMAP

Thanks

With 4 GB of RAM, is the OS 32 or 64 bit?
I suspect it is 64 bit and Office 64 bit was installed as well...

With so little RAM, even on a 64 bit system, the 32 bit version of Office will run noticeably faster... Suggest you uninstall the 64 bit version and replace with a 32 bit version of Office.

Also, check to see if the Office File Validation add-in is installed.   Look in installed programs for it.  We had to remove it to speed up our Office apps.

Office is very large about 1 gig
First : do chkdsk /f
Second : defrag hard disk (http://www.iobit.com/iobitsmartdefrag.html) it is free

And use Ccleaner
Update or upgrade office to 64 bit
