server share locks up Office programs

I updated the antivirus on a client server, since then a couple of the shared folders cause Word and Excel to hang when saving a file.  I have uninstalled the antivirus, reset the folder security but the problem continues.  Other shared folders are fine.

I finally had to rebuild the server, everything I tried caused something else to fail.  First DNS then DHCP wouldn't restart.  It became easier to replace then repair.  Office 2002 continued to be a problem after replacement of the server OS, upgrading to Office 2007solved that.  Antivirus is up and running and everything is OK.

How is the folder being shared? This can happen when you AV has an active protection running but since the AV is uninstalled that should not be the issue. Are the other shared folders on the same machine?

Have you checked these folders for any infected files? what is the antivirus you are using ?
Open my computer and Click on tools -> folder options and show hidden & hidden system files..
If there are any hidden scripts or .ini files try to scan these shared folders with an online scanner or upload the files to www.virustotal.com.

I have used the on-line Panda Scan to check for Viruses, nothing.  There are other shares, some work, the main ones don't.  This server serves several departments, I have sub folders shared out.  Everything worked great for months until the new anti-virus update.  Also, this is a Domain controller and a Terminal server.
