Excel struggling to open

Last Modified: 2016-02-16
Good afternoon Experts..

two users in the office use an excel sheet (roughly 10MB in size) user 1 can open perfectly fine from the network share

user 2 cannot open, as this hangs and spends a long time trying to load the excel sheet, eventually hanging excel.

Machine was swapped for freshly imaged new machine.. problem persists under that users login.

I logged in with my account on the machine, opened the excel and this worked fine.

This then looks to be a roaming profile issue, I rename his V2 roaming profile folder, delete all traces of the profile from the computer, and log back in as user 2, PROBLEM PERSISTS with a brand new roaming profile V2.

Any thoughts?

Operating system is Windows 7 x64
