Hey guys,

I'm having this really horrible problem with my work computer. For some reason whenever I go to type in this one document, the program locks up, I am completely unable to work with it. It keeps my CPU Usage at 100% and the program just hangs. Sometimes event log tells me about an application hang for winword, sometimes not...

What could possibly be causing this? This computer is a 2.0GHz Celeron with 378mb Ram, and nothing else locks up. I still haven't tried any other documents, but this never crashed before... I've uninstalled and reinstalled the program numerous times, and it is still crashing...

What would cause this? Is there anything I should look for in the document?

Thanks!

1) Where did you find the elusive 378mb ram stick?

2) The simple solution is to ditch that document if that's the only one crashing

3) I'd look for some messed up hidden formatting.

1) Whoops, typed the wrong numbers, I have 384mb memory.

3) No strange formatting code. I can upload the document for you, It's pretty much just a template on our Weekly status reports here for work... and it crashes at different times inside the document.

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
