Microsoft Office Excel is waiting for another application to complete an OLE action error

A user will click on a hyperlink in Excel to access a Microsoft Word Document and they will intermittently get the following error "Microsoft Office Excel is waiting for another application to complete an OLE action".

We have run a repair on Microsoft 2010 Office but the problem still occurs. It is intermittent and the system is fully updated. Any assistance offered would be greatly appreciated.
