Microsoft Word 2003 - freez

Long time I try to start Microsoft Word 2003. I installed Office 2003 Pro, everything works fine except MSWord. When I run MS Word everything seems to fine but when I move cursor on Word window then Word FREEZ. Today I found reason. When I stop network ( /etc/init.d/net.eth0 stop ) Word works fine !!!
How to fix that ? How to disable network only for MS Word ?

regards
faber

You can't disable network for Word only.

What's most likely happening is that word tries to do something on the net(e.g. phone home or check for updates) which is blocked by your firewall / router, and word delays the startup until the timeout(can be 5-10 minutes) is over.

OK, but is there any way to disable network for CrossOver ?
