A lot of problems of this type can be solved simply by renaming a file and doing a save as. It is very common with Framemaker for example. Your system may have insufficient resources. Windows, particularly 98, tends to fall over after having used it for some time, especially after having used a lot different applications (and not necessarily all at once).



It sounds like things may be grinding to a halt when you use hefty files. I would not like to have less than 256MB of memory using Windows 2000 and if I used XP I would install more. Word is a very inefficieent programme that uses a vast amount of system resources as soon as the file is large and contains a lot of graphics. I have a 2.2 GHz Pentium IV machine with 256 MB of memory but it\'s not that fast with files like that, such as some clients send me.

Sorry for any confusion caused. It should have appeared instead in \"MS Word making system resources going down\"
