Outlook 2010 stops responding attaching file

I have 3 separate computers (all built from the same image) Windows 7 Professional 64bit SP1 with Office Home and Business 2010 32bit SP1.

When clicking attach in Outlook the application stops responding. The only way out is to end the application which results in asking to send to Microsoft, these are the three files it points to when it crashes.

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

This is a known issue in Office 2007/2010

Outlook Stops responding when trying to attach a document because it tries to resolve any Mapped Drives or Shortcuts in My Documents First

Have a look on the PCs and Check to see that there are no mapped drives that are disconnected and or not working

If there are remove them.

Personally, to test I woudl remove all mapped drives from one PC

This also happens if there are any shortcuts that dont work in the My Documents Folder and or Library
Look for these and if you see one, delete it

Removing network drives isnt a long term solution. Installed Office 2010 64bit and it fixed it. Thanks for your input though.
