Recently I have run into a problem with W7. Every time the Open File dialog window opens, the window freezes, as does the program. It is becoming super annoying. I could live with it at first finding ways around it, but I have hit a roadblock in a few programs that require it. I have found several possible solutions but none have worked. No extra network drives attached or anything like that.
MSE is virus program running. I have tried disabling everything else using CCLeaner, but problem still persists. Any suggestions? I could simply do a reformat but that is a PITA.
Question: What location on the HDD is the dialog trying to open? If the dialog is trying to open to a default location that does not exist, it could crash. If the exception is not handled [the creation of such a dialog typically isnt], then it could crash/lockup the application in question.
If you try to save a file, do you get the same behavior?
