Spreadsheet data delay on opening

    Spreadsheet data delay on opening

    When I try to open an existing Excel spreadsheet, the Excel program opens to a blank screen (no sheet, just a blue background). If I minimize or maximize this screen, the existing data appears. If I don't minimize or maximize, the data does not appear. If I open the Excel program itself using the shortcut icon, I can open an existing spreadsheet with no delay on the data appearance. What's up with that? (Adobe Reader 8 behaves in a similar fashion).
    I am running Windows XP Pro, SP3 and MS Office 2007 with everything updated as of today.
    Any help appreciated!

    hi Cherita,

    Does this only occur in Excel with specific workbooks or is it any spreadsheet files?
    Do you have a large number of add-ins ticked in excel?
    If so, try removing them one by one & seeing if any one particular add-in is slowing the application down.

    There may be something that helps on the below link. There is a lot information on this page about computer speed & it doesn't all relate to Excel.
