Hi, all. I have a very important MS word doc I need to open. When I try to open it, it says "the command cannot be performed because a dialog box is open. Click o.k. and then close open dialog boxes to continue." I click o.k. but I see no open dialog box to close.
I have another problem that is probably related to the dialog box problem. When I tried to install NJ star (app.) the dialog box comes on with no writing on it. The box only has the header with the title. Same thing is happening with my bit tornado application. Nothing but the title header. Some dialog box pops up with only the header. When I try to "maximize" it I can't. I could only close it or hide it.
I'm using Windows xp home edition on Compaq AMD Athlon 512 mb ram. I just noticed something bizzar. It says that I already spent 7.8 gig of hard drive! I got this computer Sunday which is a couple of days ago. I just got online today. There is no way I spent that much hard drive space. Just ran add and remove and there is nothing that big there. WHAT GIVES??? Thanks.

sorry about late response... First run spytools adaware/spybot/spyware blaster- free from links below, and see what that turns up.

Hello, bobol. Thanks for the reply. I somehow solved the isssue by registering Microsoft Office trial that was on my laptop I just bought. As soon as I registered everything started working fine. Weird, isn't it??? ^^;;;

yes... but at times, "...our's is not to reason why":). Thanks for mentioning the 'fix'. It just might help someone else here.
