I have a problem where anytime I try to open(double click) a word, excel, pdf file icon etc. The computer freezes almost completely for about 4 minutes. Strangely when I disable the network connection the problem goes away. Files open immediately when you go to word and hit open file in the file menu. The computer is on a domain but this happens on both local and network folder files. Logged in as administrator and it does the same. None of this happens when logged into another machine. Recently upgraded to office 2007, but have unistalled and re-installed and tried 2003 and the problem remains. Running out of ideas, switched the NIC card today but that did not help either. This is a fairly new dell with XP. Thanks in advance-JV
