I am using Microsoft Outlook 2003 on Windows XP SP3 with Microsoft exchange on server. Occosionally I am getting this error and it makes my system freeze. I have to log off or restart the pc.
Error says: "microsoft office has been disabled as your default word editor"
I checked under option, microsoft office is still my default word editor. It's checked.

What else may be cause this?

Do an Office Repair. Go to Word (say) and under tools (or possibly help) is Office Repair. Do an Office Repair and see if that fixes it.

If not, consider doing a complete uninstall / restart / re-install of Office. ... Thinkpads_User

Another thing to try is to set up a new userid (profile) in Windows. Then run the new profile. See if Outlook continues to crash in the new profile. You could have a profile error.
