Save As locks up

We have a machine running Win XP with Office 2003 that every time we try to save a document in Word or Excel the box comes up asking us where to save to, and when we click the drop down arrow to choose where to save it, it locks up and says "Save As not responding"  we then have to close the program to get it to close and it will not save.  Any ideas?

    It appears that MS XP update from this weekend has caused this.  Removing KB908531 from add/remove programs and then rebooting has fixed the problem.  Pass it on.
