The title says it all. We have re-installed and repaired Office completley and the issue still stands.
The File browser window does not appear to be hidden behind any other windows.
This is Office Home and Small Business 2010 Edition included as OEM software on a new Dell PC.
Another note is when searching for an email from the start menu, clicking on any message that is found does not open the email in Outlook, it does nothing, a file association issue possibly but they all seem OK in control settings.
