I am having a small office network made up of 3 desktops and 1 laptop. The desktops run on XP service pack 2 and the laptop run on vista service pack 2. I have shared the shared documents folder of each desktop with each of other systems in the network. I have created templates in word 2007 for use of my office staff. Now when they open word 2007 for a fresh file based on default template, the system runs as usual. However, when they open word 2007 for a fresh file based on templates created by me, the system slows down. The problem persists even if the tempalte is stored on the same computer.
Am I missing something in template creation?
