Windows 7: Antivirus programs break MS Office 2007

Antivirus programs break MS Office 2007

Every single anti-virus program I've tried (AVG, Symantic, and Avira) seems to break Microsoft Office. After I install the program, when I try to run any office program at all, the program will open and just hang and come up "Not Responding." I know I probably should have virus protection, but WTF?

I'm running Avast and Office 2007 with no issues at all. I believe you have a configuration error somewhere.
