    Run a virus scan on your PC, make sure your virus definitions are up-to date.

    If you are clear, run a spyware scan. (spybot, adaware, etc)

    If that is all OK, turn off your virus software and then reboot. Try opening the document and see if it is more quick.

    Let us know, how you get on.
