I understand that you have a network and only one of the PC's is acting like this ? In that case the fact is that it's either Office or Win2K. What can I say ? ....reinstall !

Is this a shared file and are permissions set correctly, both on the networked folder end AND the document end? There is also a setting in tools in Word for macro virus protection which, if ON, sometimes causes problems with opening/closing files.
Check that the file is not opened simultaneously by another user.

Hope this helps. I wouldn't reinstall anything yet!

It allows sharing with all files, just extremely slow

I forgot! Also check to see if FindFast is installed. This is glichy little tool in Word that can cause all kinds of quirky behavior.
