The computer almost freezes and TaskManager if I can get it up shows each Office app starts up - lots of CPU then shuts down and the next app starts up.
Usually in the follwoing order:
Winword.exe
Excel.exe
PowerPoint.exe
Publisher.exe

Don't have anyting in Startup than scanner, webshots, and AVG?

I've unistalled Office 203 and computer boots up fine?
Is Office doing some sort of lookup for updates for each app? how do I turn off, rather do when if I need to?

Any advice greatly appreciated

MS Office...installs a load upon any operating system.

First of all, Outlook will hijack your email function.

Then, there are update mechanisms.

Finally, there are multiple programs requiring heavy resources when they are running.

I don't know where you are getting your startup item data...but I suggest that you download/install Autoruns and take a look at the Logon tab only fi you want to see what's running at boot that you should be concerned about.

AutoRuns for Windows - http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinte...s/bb963902.aspx
