Office keeps hanging on Event 1003 several times a day saying:

Office Software Protection Platform Service - The Software Protection service has completed licensing status check.

I have 4 licenses (Professional and Home and Business editions) and the event occurs on all machines.

Please help as this is locking computers for one to five minutes (if it doesn't crash completely) on each machine, two to five times a day.
