Opening Files In Office 2007 Very Slow

I recently upgraded my MS Office from 2003 to 2007. I then started to experience that when I started to open files from Word or Excel that it was very slow in response. I would first get a box saying “Initializing the root folders to display” and then when I clicked onto folders it would freeze for a min or so.

What I found out was that I had an old mapped drive pointing to a computer no longer connected to the network. It was a disconnected drive. Once I removed the disconnected drive from My Computer everything was normal.
