download that
run process monitor

when it starts
 press ctrl + e   (to switch off capturing) press ctrl + x (clears log)
make yourself ready for testing
1disable all user programs before running process monitor (skype,gadgets, others)
when you ready press ctrl +e (it will start capturing and start new ms word document
when office starts disable capturing (ctrl + e) check what office was doing whiles starting

you can filter log to show you only ms word

A lot of Word problems can be caused by corrupt or damaged templates.
To test for this, do Start.. Run.. winword /a
and click OK.

Word will then start up WITHOUT using any templates.  Open a new document, and see if the problem still recurs. If it's all better, you'll need to close Word, search for copies of the NORMAL.DOT file, and it's then best to rename them as NORMAL.BAD, for instance.

Unless you use a lot of macros or customised toolbars, you can just then restart Word, and it will recreate the NORMAL.DOT file.

If it's *only* Word that's affected, I'd focus on it first.
are you running WORD on the host machine or is it hosted somewhere else? are you using split screen or multiple monitors?  if you are, can you please make sure that you are running the same resolution on both screens?
