    Cut/Copy/Paste function is working very slow in Excel 2007

    I just got a new Dell with Office 2007. Computer is a Vostro 430 with 4GB of RAM and a 2.8GHz processor. Cut, copy and paste operate extremely slow in Excel 2007, even if I only have one cell to cut, copy, or paste, with nothing else in the spreadsheet. The action is always completed, but may take a minute or more. It was this way when I first tried it, right out of the box. I suspect there is something set wrong. Notably, I'm having similar problems in Word 2007. Everything else on the computer that I've tried works great, including Publishing, other facets of Excel and Word and numerous other programs. Anyone have any ideas.

    I am having the same problem here. I've looked all over the internet for answers and I can't find any help. I have uninstalled and reinstalled 3 times now and i keep getting the same problem no matter what I do.

    Actually, no, we are not copying entire rows of data. I am copying one single cell, in a very very small spreadsheet is is only about 8 cells x 5 cells. No, I have not applied any conditional formatting, or any formatting for that matter. It's the world's simplest spreadsheet. I am a BSEE with 20 years experience using Excel. This is obviously a serious failure on Microsoft's part, and I would appreciate it if MS employees would stop posting stupid answers in forums all over the internet. I have Windows 7 64-bit and Excel 2007. No, I have uninstalled all virus scanner/desktop search bars/browser search bars. This problem has persisted since a fresh, clean install of the o/s and excel 2007.
