Hi, I've got a slightly odd issue.
I've recently built a new pc (hp dc7800) with XP and office 2007 - the problem I have is that after about 24 hours of use (well left on over night) i wont be able to get any context menus or see the performance tab in the task maniger if it loads at all.
Closing a window usualy lets it work for a short period before it happens again.
The pc is a E6550 with 2gb of ram which should be more than enough memory.
What state is it in when left on?
Screensaver on or off? Hibernation or Stand-By?
Is the monitor or hard driver set to power down after a set length of time in Power Options?
I would suspect a corrupt video driver
Mark why won't my laptop work?
