I have WP SP2. Until recently, all was more or less OK. However, when I try to load a .doc file from a folder window, it will not load and after a while all the desktop icons disappear - then return but it still won't load properly. I can load 'Word' OK and then pickup the file OK from the 'Open' window in Word. I do various 'repair' attempts but to no avail. The problem occurs first thing in the morning and if I can get it to work OK all is well for the day. The next morning - zilch! Any clues anyone please.
I have encountered the same problem again. Files will open when I have first opened the programme - say Word and open the file from there but not direct from the folder. I cured it once but I don't now know how. Any help would be much appreciated.
This same problem of files not opening from a window. However, I can load the basic program - Word - and load the file from within it. I have tried loading Xp pro in safe mode but I don't think it is any better. I have tried scannow but this has not cured it. Any help, anyone, would be much appreciated. Windsor
