When I try and open a saved document, the window freezes and stops responding. After about 5 minutes, it corrects itself and Microsoft Word opens, however not the document, which takes another few minutes to load. What is causing this? I have tried opening documents in Powerpoint and they work okay so it just seems to be Word 2007 that the problem is with.

What happens if you have Word07 open and then pull up the .doc file from there?

Word 07 opens fine from the start menu etc and then when I open the document from file, open etc, that works fine too. So it just seems to be when I open the files from My Documents etc. Is this actually a problem with xp then, rather than Word?
