I (a next to computer-illterate Norwegian) operate MSOffice2003 on Windows XP; in Word2003 I, too, experience the obviously well known problem: in trying to save a document to any other file than the one proposed by the system, the system hangs and suddenly shows 100% system resources occupied. I (no longer) have any HP files on my computer, or at least they don't show up in "Add/delete files", nor can I find the KB908531 security update that I saw someone refer to elsewhere. I have run ccleaner, RegistryBooster and what not, but the problem persists. Should I throw out and re-install the entire Office package, or does anyone have a aolution to come up with?

... or "solution", as many of you would call it ;)

Hi: If you are using Microsoft Word as the default editor in Microsoft Outlook, turn it off. To do this, select menu Tools > Options > Mail Format tab, and uncheck the two boxes that refer to Microsoft word at the top of the window. Reboot, and see if this helps.
