I am having an issue with one users Outlook 2007 when they try to open an office doc from an attachment it crashes and restarts this is in owa as well. If you save the doc and then open the office application then open the saved doc its fine. If you try to open a txt doc or pdf straight from Outlook it opens fine straight away? It has all the relevent sp's and updates and uninstalled all the AV software, We are using Outllok 2007 and the rest of office is xp/2002, any ideas?
