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?

Give your grad a cloud of their own!

With up to 8TB of storage, give your favorite graduate their own personal cloud to centralize all their photos, videos and music in one safe place. They can save, sync and share all their stuff, and automatic photo backup helps free up space on their smartphone and tablet.

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...
