I have Outlook 2003 and for the past 3 weeks or so, it has been doing this

quirky thing of popping up a dialog box that wants me to save-as, either as a

text file, or a doc file. If I click cancel, the window just keeps popping

up endlessly. The only way then to exit the program is by Windows Task

Manager. It is sometimes intermittent, sometimes endless loop. I have

scanned for viruses, scanned for trojans, adware, spyware, even removed and

re-installed outlook, but nothing fixes it. IE8 was doing the same thing

until I switched to Firefox, which is much more stable. Seems to be a

problem only with MS programs. Even Excel was doing it for awhile, trying to

save-as endlessly, not allowing me to do anything. Is it a hard drive

problem? It is driving me nuts, almost to the point of buying a new

computer, and my Gateway is only like 2 years old. Thank you for any help

you can give.

The dialogue box should indicate what is offered to be saved-as, maybe

normal.dot?
