I am busy with a "largish" word document that, since the last time
it was edited, now just hangs MS Word. I have renamed it, copied it, moved
it, loaded it from another PC, all with the same result: The document comes
up but that is all, Word just does not respond.

I saw your solution, but I suspect that you're dealing with the symptoms,
not the cause.

MS Word uses system resources in proportion to the number of 'features'
that are operating: graphics display, fancy formatting, cross-references,
long documents, etc. You can overcome many MS Word <problems> by giving it
'more RAM' -- a document that runs like a dog on a PC with only 24Mb should
fly with 64Mb. Bruce Ashley, a long-time user of MS Word to produce 100+
page documents, told me that 90% of the problems ascribed to Word
performance could be traced back to insufficient memory.

If you want to install more than 64Mb, make sure that your motherboard and
Bios support it properly -- most LX and BX mobos do.

On the other hand, you could always migrate to FrameMaker <g> -- which also
appreciates at least 48Mb RAM.
