I don't experience such issues so there could be a problem with your new PC.
Hoping someone may be able to shed some light on this.
I bought a laptop last month with Vista Ultimate Edition. The computer operates perfectly except for it intermittently freezes up during usage of Office 2007 -- specifically Word.
The freeze-up generally comes immediately following an action (scrolling, printing, using the pulldown menus). The top of the menu says the program is not responsive, and eventually the entire computer freezes up with it.
All tests on the laptop (T7300, 2 Gigs RAM) indicate the hardware is working fine. No surprise given the great performance during everything else.
My only clue to the cause seems to be that most of the docs I work with are older Word files as I don't often start new files. I have found it freezing up while printing older files but when I re-saved it as a Word 2007 file, it seemed more stable. Still, I am almost always using Word in Compatibility Mode.
Office 2007 diagnostic program yielded nothing.
PLEASE HELP! Frustrating to no end considering I spend hours per day using these programs.
