With a recent update to Win7, I am finding that my Microsoft Office excel spreadsheets are freezing indescriminately. For example, the total task bar will freeze, which will not allow me to save, change, add or alter the document in any way. If I try, a second copy is made as in Save As and placed in the folder.
What I can't decipher is whether this is a Windows issue or a Micro Trend issue.
Thanks for the quick reply. Before installing Win 7 a compatability check was run. The update was installed professionally by computer technicians, and though they did encounter some troubles and had to wipe the hard drive and reinstall everything, all systems were go for the first month and a half.
All of a sudden, yesterday, duplicate Save As files were being formed for all my spreadsheets and others developed locked task bars, inability to save changes, and from somewhere the entire Microsoft Office became a "read only" on the properties. Changing from the read only status is not saved and once opened again, read only returns. With the individual files, tyring to change the read only is an available option, however "apply" is not available, so any changes simply revert to prior when reopening the same file... really odd...
No virus detected after scan with Trend Micro and McAfee... really wierd.
I was wondering if others were encountering similar issues with relation to Win7 and Excel.
Excel is definately having problems here. I have it on xp and never had a problem. I can't say that it is definately windows7, but it is very sad to lose your info, and I save it often and still keep having to redo a lot of work. Very frustrating. If anyone knows the fix let me know.
Laptop is new and was made to run with windows7. I will ask my husband who is a professional in the field to double check it but I would be surprised if this higher end laptop doesn't meet compatibility issues.
Iys not the laptop that will be the issue, it's the other applications that so far haven't been set to be compatible with windows 7 and office 2007 and versions before are not yet fully windows 7 compliant. Remember the roll out of XP? was similar problems then also
