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:
CUBX-L @ 1008 Beta 4 Bios w/ modded Celeron 1.1ghz(Tualatin)
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!
Creative Sound Blaster Audigy Gamer
Promise FastTrak100 ATA100 Raid Card

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...
