at first i thought it was a particular file.
but i created a new workbook typed "aaa" in one cell then saved it as a 2003 workbook.

i took about 50 sec to save and the "CompatabilityChecker" did not come up like it usually does.
if i click on the title bar i get a "Not Responding", but if i just wait it eventually saves. there is even a lag when saving as .xlsx.

THEN it stopped and i even added some pics to a new workbook and it saved quickly.
then about 5 min later it started lagging again.

anyways the OFFLB.exe shows up in the Task Manager and a search showed that people have had problems with this in either outlook, or access. i do not have an hp printer, which was a possible problem.

one solution is to rename the file to offlb.exe1 but that does not work for everyone.
another solution is to create a dummy offlb.exe file and replace.
i did both and it did not help.

this definitely started after i did an MS update though i doubt that is it. i restored to before the update though i know that does not get rid of the updates. ran malware and superantispyware.

any ideas at all?


oh, one other thing. i noticed that the AutoRecover notification no longer appears at the bottom when it is AutoSaving. something is going on.
