    After installing Office 2000 Professional, and all recommended updates, my computer hangs after I place it in standby. The only way I can regain control is to turn off the computer power switch and start "from scratch." I'm using Windows 98 SE. Any suggestions? Thanks.

    Do you have 'fast find' (or find fast, whatever it's called) running at startup?

    My response:

    You can reply to the thread so other people can help as well..

    I would disable everything except the systray and scan registry and re enable one by one to find the problem.......maybe the office startup is the problem.
