I have a problem that started a couple of days ago. Not sure if it's virus related or what. I noticed it shortly after upgrading to the new version of Firefox but have been unable to find any info on it.

Basically, irrespective of the application (Word, Excel, Explorer, Firefox), when I attempt to open or save or whatever requires a dialog box to open, it starts the process then freezes. Sometimes some of the files will show before freezing, sometimes not.

I've run some basic virus scans but nothing.

I have a laptop with windows 7
Running AVG for virus protection. (paid, not free)

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
