I have the similar problems on windows vista running Mathematica 7.01
and word 2003 (Same thing happens with word 2007).

Similar to the OP's issue, When word (2003 or 2007) is running at the
same time as Mathematica, Mathematica becomes unresponsive to mouse
inputs. Well, it becomes very sluggish to anything I'm trying to do in
Mathematica. (like selecting, evaluating, even typing)

I realized at one point, my problem was caused by endnote reference
manager program integrated with Word.

When I uninstalled  Endnote (x.2 version), the problems disappeared.
now I can run both word 2003 and 2007 at the same time as Mathematica
and have no problems.

It's quite unfortunate because Endnote is very useful for writing...
hope there is some type of workaround for this.

Another thing weird about endnote is that it uses "field" feature in
Word which causes excessive CPU usage. At least that's what I can tell
on my machine using task manager.
