Second Database Is Slow To Open

The following problem started on my PC about a week ago and I can't
link it to any specific change. I'm using Access XP.

If I have any database open and try to open any other database by
double clicking its file in Explorer, it takes about 5 seconds to open.
Previously the second database would open almost instantaneously, as
one would expect on a reasonably fast machine.

However if I have any database open and then open a second instance of
Access by running it from the Start menu it opens instantaneously. If
I then double click any another database file in Explorer it will use
the open instance of Access and open instantaneously.

I have tried uninstalling and then reinstalling Access but the problem
remains. If anyone can give me a clue as to what is causing the
problem, and better still how to fix it, I would appreciate it.
