    File Corruption

    I'm having problems with Word97 file corruption. When I try to open a file, it will not open. Then I'm told that it is corrupted. This has happened rather often.

    I formatted my hard drive and reinstalled all programs about 4 months ago. Everything has worked well until very recently.

    I have run scan disk and defrag. My disk has plenty of room. I run Mcafee Clinic Virus Scan frequently.

    Any suggestions?

    My computer is also VERY SLOW sometimes. I have 256 megs of RAM.

    I'm becoming frightened because valuable files are corrupting.

    Hi Reva,

    I take it that you are not using Master Documents (don't!).

    For information on document corruption see:
