Office Applications Lock Up Using Windows 7

I have an Acer laptop running Windows 7 32 bit.  I just finished reloading the operating system because it will "stop responding" when I try to open WORD, when I try to delete an icon on my desktop and when I try to print.  Before I could restore to an earlier point and it would work, but then fail again in an hour, day or week.  Does any one have a definitive answer as to what is causing this?  Before the reload I renamed the CLASSpnp.sys file and it worked for a while, but then the same problems occured.   HELP!!!

Possible hard drive failure? Bad stick of RAM?  I would scan it to see.

Can you check your memory by downloading/burning Ultimate Boot CD and running Memtest86+ from the memory category?

I've checked the memory with the tool that comes with Windows 7.  How would I check my HD?

Well, the UBCD has drive test tools as well, what brand/type HD do you have?

There is no test utility for Toshiba on UBCD. Maybe you can try the Toshiba site with both serial and model to find out if they have a utility (warranty section).

Seems like the issue is with our Domain Server.  The other Windows 7 users are having similar problems, and I had to reboot the server this morning which resolved the hanging issue.  Thanks anyway.
