If you receive a message "Initializing the Root Folders to Display" and a delay when opening a Word/Excel doc, check your mapped drives. Probably one or more of the drives is disconnected/inaccessible. Use the command

net use

to view your mapped drives, and

net use <drive letter>: /d

to remove a mapped drive.
