Outlook & Word hangs and not responds when trying to attach a file

Hello Experts.

I have Windows XP Pro with Outlook 2002 with Service Pak 3 with 1 single pop account.
Everything seems to be fine downloading and sending email but when I try to attach a document to the email the dialog pops up and when I click on the down arrow for the 'LOOK IN' to go to a mapped drive or floppy or any other drive, it immediately goes to hourglass and goes to Not Responding.  It can take 10 to 20 minutes and it still isn't responding.

Word has the same thing. When I click OPEN the dialog pops up without any problem to My Documents folder but when I click on the down arrow to select a different drive, it just hangs.

Has anyone else seen this happen? Any suggestions/solutions?

Thanks.
