Word 2003 Takes Several Minutes To Load

Post by Anthony Bo » Sat, 13 Oct 2007 23:51:51


It was nearly unbearable before, but after installing the latest service
packs, now I get about 8 macro warnings and Word eats up the whole machine
for a few minutes. Just installed SP3 with a few other packs, so I guess
that is what is hitting it, but I just need to disable all of these startup
macros and bypass whatever else it is trying to do. How do you do that?

Thanks!
Tony

Dump the existing normal.dot and create a new one.

(I know - the reason isn't the same but it still gets you to the same end
point - a clean document to start with.)

I deleted and restarted Word and it recreated Normal.dot, but this did not
eliminate all of those macro messages. I want to absolutely delete and kill
and cancel all of those macros. I don't need them or want them. How do I
do that?

Thanks! Tony

In that case you have some add-in(s) loading with Word. There are no macros
in normal.dot unless you put them there. See
