Re: .xls files take long time to open
I think this is may be your only Excel issue not the entire Office issue. To get out of this problem you just have to follow the d\following steps:

Afterwards you just have to select the Advanced option, then under General, make sure that DDE (Dynamic Data Exchange) is not checked. If this problem is still persists, for Windows Vista and Windows 7, we need to edit the registry to remove DDE completely.
- For added protection, back up the registry before you modify it. Then, you can restore the registry if a problem occurs.
- First you have to just click on the “Start” button, then you just have to click on “Run” option.
- In run you just have to type “regedit” and press hit an “Enter”.
- After that Registry Editor is get open. After that you just have to click on to the “HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT” after that you just have to scroll “Excel.Sheet.12\shell\Open”
- Now you just have to delete the ddeexec sub key.
- Afterwards you just have to click on the command subkey, and then double-click the Default value from the right pane. Replace the value data with: "C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\OFFICE14\EXCEL.EXE" "%1"
- Now you just have to double-click on the Command string value, and you just have to replace its data with:
