Word using up all CPU

I am running office XP on 2003 Presario Notebook 1.7
Centrino processor with 512 RAM.

Whenever I use Word now the CPU shoots up to 100% usage,
which causes the fan to fun at full speed constantly, and
quickly drains the battery.

When I shut down Word, the CPU usage goes down to about
8%.

Does anyone have any idea what is causing Word to take up
so much of the CPU, or what I can do to fix the problem?

Thanks much for any ideas.

Most frequently, this is a problem with the Spelling or Grammar. Open Tools,
Options, select the Spelling and Grammar tab and uncheck the two check as
you type options. Does that reduce the CPU load?

Unfortunately not.

Do you have any other ideas? My hard drive is getting
close to being full, although I haven't gotten any
messages that anything needs to be deleted. Other than
that, I can't think of anything that could cause the
problem.

If the HD is so full that there's not room for a very large swap file, then
that could be part of the problem.

Would this be the case only with using Word? It does not
happen when I use other programs, including Excel.

When I close Word down the problem goes away.
