Have you recently installed anti-virus on the server/clients or other security software that may be causing a bottleneck?

Also, can you ping the machine that contains the files with a reasonable time?

have you patched either the client machines or office? Does this only effect word or excel as well? It sounds like virus activity, but could be bad patch activity as well. Garb one effected machine, log on locally and test. If still slow, log on and run a full virus scan from a source OTHER then the scanner on the local machine. Also look at the add/remove programs to see when last update/patch for office went in.
