Hi All,
There is numerous reports (see links below) of IE crashing on
vista when opening word or ppt from sharepoint 2003.
This is also happening to me. Does anyone know how to fix this

Thanks

I was experiencing something very similar to the issues you describe above and the following appears to have resolved my problems:

¡¤ Go to ¡°C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office12¡±

¡¤ Delete ¡°OWSSUPP.DLL¡±

¡¤ ¡°Start¡± -> ¡°All Programs¡± -> ¡°Microsoft Office¡± -> ¡°Microsoft Office Tools¡± -> ¡°Microsoft Office Diagnostics¡±

¡¤ Run the diagnostics and it should fix 1 issue in its last step.

I'm running Office 2007 on XP SP2 using IE7 to access SharePoint.

I got the same issue with IE7, Office 2003 on XP SP3 and WSS 3.0. In addition I have Sharepoint Designer 2007 installed as well.

The steps you described did fix the issue.

Hi,

I have the same problem but it is not just Office files which crash IE7. Opening any file (pdf, txt, etc) causes IE7 to error. Seems to have started in the last couple of days even though I haven't installed any updates.

I have tried all the suggested fixes. No success.

Has anyone got any further insight into what this problem may be

This also fixes the same issue with PDF files, even when Word docs open properly from SharePoint.

This worked for me as well. It did not work the first time, but I tried again and rebooted before retrying IE7. Worked great after rebooting.

Running Office 2003, SharePoint 2003, IE7 and Vista.

Would this work to fix similar problems in Sharepoint 2007 Are there any caveats to implementing this fix

Thank you for your post, we had the exact same problem with Office 2003 and MOSS 2007 and could not figure it out. Your posting resolved the issue...thank you. We spent many hours trying to resolve.
