office 2013 sluggish startup?

[link to this post]
Upgraded to 2013 Professional Plus through the Home Use Program.

As the appication now uses MS' App V technology all of the updates stream from their content caches.

I'm noticing a bit of a sluggish startup when starting say Outlook after booting the system (first job I usually do is check my e-mail) compared to my Office 2010 install.

My connection is an O2 Wholesale one managed by Xilo running at 3.6 Meg down and 950 k up and is and has been absolutely rock solid throughout.

Mu system specs are as follows:

Core i5 3450 (3.1 Ghz but turboboost is active and is currently running at 3.29 Ghz)
4 GB DDR3 RAM running 1600 Mhz
Windows 7 64-but SP1

Switching updates off seems to speed things up a bit and have of course done a defrag.

The install is not associated with an Office account.

Anyone else noticed this?

Virgin (ADSL) => Namesco => Newnet => O2 => Plusnet => Zen => Newnet => Zen => Freeola => Vivaciti (using O2 Wholesale DSL) => Xilo (C&W Wholesale) => Xilo (O2 Wholesale)
Note: I don't lay turf for anyone. astro or otherwise, all views and opinions expressed are my own based on experience.

Office may still be installing bits and pieces - you can run it before everything is installed. Until everything is downloaded, performance tends to be rubbish. I'm running the pre-release version and it seems to be pretty nifty.
