    Hi,

    I've a little problem, when I start Word 2003, it takes around 20 seconds and then I can use it.
    Some times there is even a force close. (then the word 2003 freezes)

    And if I type: winword /a in Start it starts up directly.
    So now my default program for .doc files = winword. (which is slow)
    I can't change it to /a.
    (/a is add-ins??? so winword /a = word without add-ins?)
    Can i disable those add-ins?

    My Pc specs = the 2nd in my computer specification
    vista home premium x64
    4gb ram
    640gb harddisk

    Thanks in advance
