Word Document slow to open

  griffo 12:11 24 Jan 2005

Suddenly a document we use as a template is very slow to open (3 minutes). It is worse on our XP machines, but still takes about 30 seconds or so on a W98SE machine. We are accessing documents created from this template, stored on our proxy server. We are using Word 2000 and Norton Systemworks 2003. It says 'requesting virus scan' then takes 3 minutes to open. This has only started happening today, previously these documents opened normally.
Any ideas please?
