Microsoft Office >> 'My recent documents - word, excel etc'

Hello !. Your point of view would be much appreciated,
thanks !


Set-up:

Office 2003 Pro, all patches and XP Pro, all patches

Hardware:

Dell D600, physical memory 512, free resources, 270+
physical memory (via task manager). Its all new kit.

Scenario:

Opening 'my recent documents' brings up the following error

memory available and then try again..."

Additional comments:

The problem does not occur every time, just most of the
time

Microsoft Office >> 'My recent documents - word, excel etc' Hi,

Thank you for posting here!

Please help me clarify followings:

" Can you reproduce this issue when launching Word or Excel?
" Can you reproduce this issue when launching Word in Safe Mode?
" Have you installed any third-party real-time program or service?
" Can you reproduce this issue when logging on the computer as another user?

If the issue persists when launching in Safe Mode, I would like offer you
some suggestions:

1. Update anti-virus, and scan the whole hard disk for virus.
2. Disable any anti-virus plug-in for Office.
3. Perform a clean boot on the computer. For your reference: 310353 How to
Perform a Clean Boot in Windows XP --
