Hello,

Any help on this would be greatly appreciated.

I'm using Microsoft Word 2003 and this problem only started today. Made an attempt to save a document and the whole program froze. The little hour glass symbol came up and I waited, nothing happen. I tried several more times and no luck.

Any body have any ideas as to what is going on?

Thanks for your help

That’s strange... I've been experiencing the same exact problem, with the same exact version of Word. I tried deleting and restoring my registry data key, but it didn't do crap. Any advice would be great...

i tried doing that as well last night and it didn't make a difference.

wondering if it's some sort of virus not being picked up by my virus scan, which i also did last night before restoring the registry data key.
