Default Publisher cannot open the file you specified

Hi
On a new installation of Pub 2003 on XP, when trying to
open a saved file comes up with ' Publisher cannot find
the file you specified. The next dialog box will let you
browse to locate the file on your hard disk or floppy disk'

This seems like a systemic thing, but have run Norton
Windoctor, reinstalled, but no luck, continues to get this
message, or 'unable to open file'.
Any suggestions please

This is usually a Norton problem, disable "scrip blocking" and maybe in Norton
options, disable "Office Plug-ins."

You receive a "File is not available" error message when you try to open an Office
2003 document
