Certain Office Applications and IE hanging

Archived from groups: microsoft.public.windowsxp.help_and_support (More info?)

Just this weekend (nothing new was installed), my computer started to
experience a problem with hanging. After it boots, it will hang if I try to
enter any MS Office application or Internet Explorer. I can work on other
things while these windows are hung. If I use Norton System Works Process
Viewer and "kill" explorer.exe (it goes away for a second and then reloads
itself) from processes running, then everything is fine. I can then launch
Office apps and IE without any hangups. That is, until I boot again. I've
tried running sfc /scannow and it didn't work. I'm running Windows XP Home
with SP2.
