Microsoft Word 2003 Slow to Open File from Folder

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.
