Okay guys, I have not been able to find a fix, however, here is a suggestion; pop over to Microsoft's Office website and check with their Office forum to see if you can find a fix. Since I don't have the problem it has been difficult to test my system.
Even set up a VM with Win 7 then loaded Office 2003, but was unable to get it to do what your problems are. Remove Office 2003 then loaded 2007 still no problems. It might have something to do with a possible update (just can't figured it out).
Good luck. Here's a link
