Power Point 2007 Continuously Freezes.

At several points each day, apparently at random, PowerPoint will freeze (stop responding).
When this happens, I cannot Save or Close my file, but must shut down the program through Task Manager.
Then I can re-open PowerPoint, find where my last entries were recorded, and repeat my last few entries to bring the file current. Then I can continue my work--until it freezes again. This same issue also happens whenever I try to print.Has anyone else had this issue?

JSRWilson: I do not have a local default printer driver installed. All printer drivers are centrally managed on a server.

In the properties of the network card, make sure that the Link Speed / duplex mode is to auto.
I had a similar problem and the customer was using 100MBPS this configuration, when I put self, everything worked well.

Local printer diver is important. Crazy I know but it will lead to all sorts of problems including crashes. SP2 improved this.

Changing the link speed from 100MBPS Full duplex, to Auto seemed to have resolved the issue.
