Pc and mouse Freezes momentarily untill I close office 2007 aplications

I'm currently running a windows xp service pack 3, with Intel core duo cpu and and 2GB of Ram.

For some reason it just frezzes my pc when I'm running any of the office 2007 application,not every time, but from time to time, like today it happend and I had to restart my station and then it was ok, but it keeps coming back often, my mouse wont click on anything it will move around but not select or click on nothing, if a click ctrl+alt+del it opens task manager.

I had avg free AV installed and removed it thinking it was something wrong with it, but still getting same problems.

I will appreciate any help I can get on this thanks.

Have you recently run your virus scan software just to make sure you don't have something attach to 2007 Office. I would do this first. Have you had this problem in the past before upgrading to Office 2007? Did everying work ok before you upgraded to XP SP3?

Thanks...

Yes I did before uninstalling the AV software.The problem started honestly like around 3 weeks ago, and I have try to find the problem, so I have narrow it down to the office applications, I was thinking about reinstalling office, but I want to use this as a last resource.

Thanks.

I had the same problem before I upgraded to Vista. Office 2007 would stat not responding and I could move the mouse but no options to click on anything. I would wait about 5 minutes and the program would awake and I would be able to use the mouse. I don't know if Office 2007 takes a lot of CPU cycles which causes problems with XP or not.

I will contiue to work on this problem and let you know.

I actually did some basic actions, I updated all my windows updates, defrag the hard drive and install the AV software and updated and then run a scan, no virus were found, but is has been working perfectly since that, thought this might help.

Any progress from your side.?

Maybe the Microsoft update did the trick.
