    I Have one more for Microsoft office 2007 Word.
    1. Right-click on the desktop.
    2. Click New and select Shortcut.
    3. Click the Browse button and go to the Word executable (”C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office12\WINWORD.EXE”).
    4. After the full path and the end quotes, add one space and type in /q.
    5. Click Next.
    6. Type a name for the shortcut.
    7. Click Finish.
    8. Use the Shortcut you just created.
    No more splash screen when you open Word.

    I believe its a good idea to create a disabling splash screens list.
