    Question Slow font drop down Office 2003

    Hi,

    Kind of posted about this yesterday but in the wroong section asking for the wrong advice.

    Our librarian has, over the last few days, had problems with the font drop down in office - (word, powerpoint and publisher at least - don't think she's tried the others).
    It juust opens, blank and then crashes the whole program. Takes ages to force close.

    Nothing else is running at the same time, I have been through and deleted about 90 fonts that were unneccesary (no idea how they got there but the PC has been there about 10 years so someone must've installed them before I worked here). Still the same problem.

    Not really sure where to go from here, no one else is having this problem to my knowledge. She has 2gb of RAM so more than enough for what she needs. Nothing else has changed on her set up recently.

    Anyone got any ideas? Really at a loss!

    Hi,

    Not sure about your set-up, operating systems, servers, Office version etc...

    Long hang times on start-up, when waiting for explorer windows, context menu or drop down boxes can sometimes be attributed to non-existent shares, or servers/path names being looked for.

    Something like this...?

    Hope it helps!

    Thank you - this seems very useful - Seems to be mapping an incorrect user or something, so just trying to sort it out.
