Word 2003 document takes SOOO Long to open

I have a document with three paragraphs of text and no photos or graphics and when I double-click to open it, it takes about 90 seconds.

What is this caused by?
How can I remedy this?

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Try to disable all the add-in's and see if it loads faster.  If it does, then enable one by one until you find the culprit.

It sounds like a corrupt document. Try copying it (Ctrl+A, Ctrl+C), and pasting the open document to a new blank document.

I have no add-ins.

What is the size of the file as reported by the OS?  

Is the file local, or on a server?  Either way, check the System Event Log and see if there's anything unusual, esp something disk-related like retries.

Was there a template associated with this document that maybe isn't there now for some reason?
