Hi all.. we've got an odd problem.
A customer has office 2000 installed on a windows 2000 workstation, all updates installed. The excel files are kept on the server.

Whenever she saves the file to the server the PC instantly shuts down and restarts (no warnings, black screen, machine switches off). Yet when she saves to local it is fine..

Has anyone come across this before? It occasionally happens with word as well. Its a clean install.

Is there a shortcut key for strikethrough?
Ctrl+S is used for Save. Ctrl+5 is used for Strikethrough. Why Ctrl+5? When you use hashmarks to count |||| is 4, strike through to mean 5.

maybe your network device has an io error. IO errors sometimes let the computer restart
