|I've got a problem with some interaction between IE6 and MS Office 2000.|
When the user is working in MS Word, everything is fine until the user opens IE6. At that point, Word freezes. Most of the time all the text in the document disappears, other times you just can't do anything with Word. After a while, the user will get Not Responding in the title bar.
If we quit Word and restart it, it still doesn't respond. In fact, no Office products will respond even after Word has been forced quit and any Office product started. The app (Word, Excel, PP) will open, but will not respond. The machine itself has to be restarted in order to get Office working again.
I first tried the Detect and Repair feature in Office but that didn't help, so I uninstalled Office and reinstalled it. Once again, it didn't help. That leads me to believe that Office isn't the root problem, just a symptom.
Where do I go from here? I guess I could upgrade to IE7 to see if that fixes it, but I figured I'd check here first.
