When opening a Word document from Windows Explorer, the computer freezes and becomes "not responding".  When opening from within Office (file > open) there are no problems. This problem does not occur constantly but is fairly common.  Do you have any ideas as to why this happens?

We are running Windows XP SP2 and on a domain.
