The action of attempting to open a document from the Windows Explorer shell probably results in the anti-virus software scanning the file, which uses CPU resources. Try disabling the realtime feature to see if you observe a difference. -- P.J. Hinton Mathematica Programming Group paulh at wolfram.com Wolfram Research, Inc.
