contact merge with Word

Since we upgraded from Word 2002, ACT 2006 to Word 2007, ACT 2008 our contact merge has slowed dramatically.  It used to take us a matter of minutes to merge 100 contacts into a Word letter, now it takes upward of 30 minutes.  Even after the merge is complete, it takes a long time to "load the file."
 
Any suggestions?

Are you trying to print or email the result?
What system specs are you using?

The speed difference between earlier Act versions and the newer Act 2007-2008 was dramatic.  I upgraded to a Pentium 4 Dell pc with 2 GB of ram and unfortunately ACT is still somewhat of a "pig".  The merge shouldn't take 30 minutes though.
