Word 2007 slow to save in Windows 10

I updated my desktop computer from Win7 Pro to Windows 10 about 6 weeks ago, and everything seemed fine (I just upgraded - did not do a clean install). A couple of weeks ago, not sure exactly when, I noticed that saving a new file in Word 2007 takes about 5 seconds. I'm just saving to the internal hard drive, and it doesn't matter what folder it's being saved in. I don't have that problem if I'm logged in as Administrator, only when logged in as a user (I'm the only user).

Is this an indexing issue? I've used the Troubleshooter for indexing, which found no problems, and have deleted and rebuilt the index.

I don't see that as a big problem, but...

...check your empty drive space available. As you get near end of drive space, windows can take longer to find all the clusters for a particular file, especially if it's fragmented. Have you defragged the computer this year?

Last mongth it was tracked to the antivirus.

It seems many antivirus are combing over Word files deeper as there are now many more Word infections going around.

Google "your antivirus" and say the words "word slow saves"
