Office apps, specifically word and excel take a long time to open. For added protection, back up the registry before you modify it. PowerPoint, Infopath, Publisher and Visio all open normally (2-3 seconds). Wow - struggled with this problem for days, fixed it with the DDE modification to the file type.
