TextPad and Excel Slow To Open Files

November 11th, 2012 Leave a comment Go to comments

I recently discovered an issue on my Windows 7 x64 system where double clicking text files (associated with TextPad) and Excel files (associated with Excel) took over 30 seconds to open the file.

A few forums on the Web suggested that the problem was that a program on my system may be blocking DDE messaging. In my case it turned out that Acronis TrueImage 2012 was the issue.

After uninstalling this bad boy I found that my file open timings returned to normal.
