Word 2010 though sometimes Excel too, intermittently when double click network share file says downloading and never opens

Hello EE,

I have a Windows 7 desktop with 3.4GHz processor and 16GB RAM.
When I access a network share across my 9Mbps bonded T1, files open in expected time, but intermittently when double click network share file says downloading popup but than nothing happens

Are you able to cancel / abort and retry? If so, what happens?

I had similar issues and thought it was related to a network glitch, file in use, interference by backup, incorrect permissions.  But every time I was able to reload the file on a 2nd attempt...  For me this was one of those annoying issues that disappeared.... actually (come to think of if) ever since I unplugged my NAS... hmmm

I have the same situation where it works the 2nd time.  I don't know what the issue is though.
I  think Word is stuck trying to determine what the file permission should be. Not sure of a solution though. Perhaps look at the folder permissions?

After a document loads, do other documents open properly?
Yes only this one remote network share.  All others work fine and all other users can access this share fine
