    1. For a while the computer has become very slow, to open a file takes two minutes and to print a page takes five minutes.

    2. Unable to open excel file directly, a blank page comes up, have to go to FILE and then select particular file to open.

    I have been told to reload M/S programme to resolve this problem. Is it correct?

    What version of Excel?

    In newer versions click on the Office Button in the top left corner and then select Excel Options > Advanced > then scroll through the list and uncheck "Ignore other applications that use Dynamic Data Exchange (DDE)"

    In older versions of Excel the option is under TOOLS >> OPTIONS >> GENERAL TAB
