    menu commands cause freeze up (Excel 97 office 97 sr-2)

    Thanks for being there...

    When selecting several cells and going to the drop down font size menu Excel stalled. Had to Ctrl-Alt Del to exit it. After some testing.. I conclude in Word and In Excel (have not tested others) it seems that any menu command cause this freezing up.... even in new documents,

    I deinstalled all of office and re installed it.. No dice. I use PC Cillin and updates everday and it was on and currently finds viruses....

    Any thoughts.

    Try cleaning up your hard drive:

    If that doesn't work, try the troubleshooting for Word at:

    If the Word thing helps Word and you still have the problem in Excel, take the same reg fix I give for Word only use the Excel folder. If you don't understand, PLEASE ASK. I'll be happy to give more detail.
