Office 2003 freezing when saving
Posted on 2009-04-27
Whenever I try to save using MS word 2003 it hangs. The save dialog pops up quickly. But if I try to save to another directory, by clicking on the select box, it freezes for 20+ sec before showing me the directory tree. It freezes every step of the navigation.
I do have mapped network drives which will timeout because the computers are often turned off. I read that this can be remedied by changing registry:
Office --> 11.0--> Common --> Open Find -->
Adding dword DisableAutoSelect = 1
Tried it, but no change. Any idea how to stop the lag time?
