Lockups when using Microsoft Word or any...

    other Office Application... This started happening as soon as I customized Windows for "best appearance". This never used to happen when it was in "best performance". What's odd is, my brother has always used the default / "best appearance" / "Let Windows choose what's best for my Computer" choice and his Office Applications never locked up... Any ideas?

    My hardware:

    Western Digital Hard Drive 40GB
    512mb SDRAM [3 sticks: 2x 128mb; 1x 256mb]Both by Crucial
    Hercules 3d Prophet 8500 128mb @ 275/275 = not overclocked!

    Are the versions you are using the same? If you are using Office 97 or earlier, than you might consider an upgrade to Office 2000 or XP; it is just too old.
    Unless someone else has found a workaround for it...
