Outlook hangs on trying to save files

When I receive an attachment and I try to save it, outlook just hangs ... Also, if I open a mail in a new window, it takes forever ...

There was no problem until I applied some windows automatic updates ...

win 2000, outlook 2002

Thanks for any help

Sunnycoder,

Hmm.. There could be several issues.

But if you are confident that it happened after an update, have you tried removing that update and check to see if that would solve the problem
Then we can explore about the update and see if there is an issue with the update

See there are lots of updates that cause problem these days.. Not sure which one in particular

yes, I applied the update yesterday and problem started today ( I received attachments today )

how do I locate/remove updates... control panel add/remove programs shows 12 hotfixes
