Default Microsoft Office Thesaurus

Lately when I've been using the thesaurus on Microsoft Word it's been really slow. Everytime I look up a word it takes seriously 10-15 seconds to just load the thesaurus and find another word. Can you guys tell me what's wrong and what I can do about it?

What are your system specs and have you tried reinstalling it? A Thesaurus is a very very big system and if youre searching for alternate meanings of common words theb it will take longer than you might like.

I have a 1.73 GHz processor with 1 GB of RAM and 100 GB harddrive. I've uninstalled twice and it still does the same thing.

The thing is, it didn't start getting this slow until about a couple weeks ago..

I've uninstalled and reinstalled multiple times but I still get the same problem.
However, I just installed Microsoft Word 2007 and the thesaurus seems to run very smoothly. I would still like my Word 2003 to go that quickly though.
