    Running Windows XP on Desktop computer. About two months ago -- I think concurrent with an MS-Office update (but not sure) -- none of the three MS-Office programs I regularly use (Outlook, Word, PowerPoint) will shut down completely. The window goes away, but the programs stay running if I look in Task Manager (and if I open a second copy, programs start acting wonky, which is what prompted me to look in Task Manager in the first place).

    Can't find any answers to this on this site or via Google search. Problem doesn't repeat using same install software on notebook computer.

    Help!

    Have you tried....

    1) Going to Outlook, Word, and PowerPoint's Help Menu and click on Detect and Repair
