We have a user who is working on an excel file (MS Office 2010-32bit) which has links to another file. The issue we are having is when we try to link a file or even do anything with the spreadsheet, it freezes for about 3 to 5 minutes before the action is performed. The two files we are working on are not huge files, one is 4 Mb while the other is about 500 kb. The files are on a network share drive. But to take the network portion out of the equation I moved the files to the local PC. The files linked together on the PC still behaved the same way, they froze anytime a link was added. Any advice would be helpful.
We are using a Windows 7 PC 64bit
File server is windows 2012
