Deleted it this am.
I found this on my PC this morning. I found that msword98.exe was installed in two places… documents&settings/myusername/ where it was called at start up, and in windows/system32. To delete, I had to boot into safe mode then delete, as the file is in use.

Once done, my computer was no longer so slow. I am now able to run av software and wot not.
