Aiysha,

Do you face this problem only when you do anything in office application.

IN that case try reinstalling office

If with office application things were OK during an earlier time , try restoring windows xp

windows xp restore :

Are you using a standalone PC or is it connected to a network?  If it is connected to a network and your problems saving involve saving files to a network location, what server OS are you running and what protocols are installed?

I've seen this before(I think).  Goto www.officeupdate.com and get the service packs for your Office install (Upper Right corner, click on "Check for Updates").  If this isn't the fix, it is definately a great first step!

FYI.  www.officeupdate.com is Microsoft's Offical Office Update Site...  It actually redirects here...
