Hi everyone,

I am running a legit copy of office 07 and seem to be experiencing a bleep of an issue when using field chooser. I am malware free and virus free and my system runs good. What happens is, when right clicking a field in a task pane, I am presented with the context menu where I select "Field Chooser". All is well. The second I drag a current field in the task pane, it goes black background, since it is selected but then, my entire system freezes. no ctrl-alt-delete response, no mouse movement response, no hdd activity, no repsonse when start +m are pressed to go to desktop. absolutely nothing but a total freeze. no error messages appear either or blue screen errors. The only way to get out of it is to hold down the power button and hard boot it. ouch. I have 2GB of memory installed bought from crucial.

any ideas?

many thanks.
Darren

Supposedly any freezes related to Outlook 07 have been caused by installing sp1 for Outlook. Cant guarantee that this would work, but if you want to try see either:

>> Defrost Microsoft Outlook

HillBillyGreek,

THANKS for your insight. No doubt it was caused by an auto-update of SP1. Remember how many apps XP SP1 disrupted? It is not a problem that I'd want to tear into where there is risk that it might get more messy and cause other probs. It just struck me as odd how it could freeze the entire system instantly. I might just have to live with it. I was curious to see what thoughts I'd get and if anyone else had experienced the problem.
Darren
