When clicking on a Word document in a folder, Word 2003 takes a long time to open the file.  The same file opens immediately when accessed from File, Open within Word.

Have deleted NORMAL.DOT and run MSO 2003 Detect and Repair.

All temporary files have been deleted.

The computer is running Webroot AntiVirus and has the same problem with Webroot turned off.

If the document is on a network drive, let's hope it's not your network.

Hopefully one of these will solve your problem: http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;280821

The problem was resolved by resetting the default file association settings.

Thanks!
