    Office 2013 apps and Windows Explorer take an eternity to open on T100

    My T100 takes forever to open the Word, Powerpoint and Excel 2013 apps from the Windows 8 start menu, and also takes a very long time to open Windows Explorer. As an experiment, I installed Office 2007 and Word, Excel and Powerpoint all open immediately.

    What can I do to improve startup times of the native apps?

    Perhaps it's the OneDrive sync? Don't know if/how to turn that off.

    I just tried uninstalling MS Skydrive, but it made absolutely no difference

    As for IE, is that the modern version or the desktop version? Once open, do browser pages load quickly? How many start tabs do you have on startup? What is your wifi speed? Is your connection solid? Can you stream youtube videos without stutter or buffering?

    How long have you had your T100 (what model), did these issues just start?

    It's not IE that's the problem - it's Windows Explorer (i.e. the "file manager" type app). I've had the T100 for about 6 months, but the problems have got alot worse over the last few weeks.

    Do you have a restore point from before the problems began? You might restore to that point.

    Only one restore point - from earlier this week (prior to a Windows update). I've just rolled back to it anyway, and it seems to have helped alot. Will keep an eye on it. Many thanks for your help.
