problem opening documents

  griffo 07:32 12 Oct 2003

quite often I have a problem when trying to open or save a word/excel document. I think it is more prevalent with docs. that have been emailed to me. When I go to 'save as', the document title box on the bottom taskbar (sorry if terminology is wrong)starts flashing and I have found that, if I click start/shutdown then cancel, everything is OK. Is it something to do with Norton Virus checker? This happens on two of my PC's, one is XP Pro the other is W98.
Any ideas please?

It probably is Norton. I'm looking for a link for you.

have followed the advice and disabled Office Plug-in contained in Norton Antivirus - will see how we go. Many thanks.
