Users use roaming profiles from SBS 2003 server
One user cannot use Word 2007 on that PC, Word 2007 hangs at point where it's opened window but pane is blank. You can do nothing with Word except close it. Task Manager shows Word 2007 as not responding.

Problem user can logon to other six identical PCs and use Word 2007 no problem. Other users can log onto problem PC and use Word 2007 no problem. All Domain Users are local administrators on PCs

Problem user on problem PC can use rest of Office 2007 suite ok except Word 2007

Tried so far: -

3. Starting Word 2007 from command line with /a and /r switches
4. Deleted registry keys as per
