Word XP help

Hi

i find that when i have an office doc [eg a word file open] and i want to either "save as" or "print", the first time i select either of these 2 options the document becomes unselected but the header flashes alternately in the "active doc" and "inactive" doc and likewise the taskbar for it flashes orange. i have to click on the orange-flashing taskbar entry to minise the document and then i see either the printing options or else the "save as" options which i can use normally. i then obviously have to click on the minimised taskbar title to bring the doc back up.

it doesnt matter which i select first: "save as" or "print" - this problem always happens; but from then on everything works fine and i can select anything at will and it works like it should.

can anyone suggest what setting may have been inadvertently set to cause this and how do i correct it.

many thanks

a weird bug i guess? do you have the legit copy of office? if you do, send microsoft an email, if not, dont complain.

maybe uninstalling and reinstalling office might help, or ultimatey if its really annoying, a reformat.

apologies for the double post [i have just noticed].

actually i think i said in my post that i had tried both reinstalling and had even reformatted for a different reason and that didnt help.
As it is i found out what the problem is - i suspected that it might have been related to the NAV Office plug-in and when i disabled it the problem disappeared.

The legitimacy of my copy not withstanding [;-)] i found confirmation on the MS database as well that this is a known issue.
