    Thanks for all your help, I'll try a fresh install of Office to see if that fixes it. I think I will leave the torrents alone from now on as they have given me so many problems. Thanks again...

    You're welcome. I'll leave you more information about the file sharing. It should help you understand better why it's best not to use these programs:
    ---------------------------
    P2P programs (also known as 'file sharing.') are a major source of Malware infections.
    Even if you are using a P2P program that is deemed safe, it is only the program that is safe. Any files that you receive using a "safe" P2P program may be infected with Malware. The malware writers use P2P file-sharing as a major conduit to spread infected files.
    • As long as you are using file sharing networks and programs which are from sources that are not documented, you cannot verity that a download is legitimate.
    • File sharing is usually unmonitored and there is a danger that your private files might be accessed.
    • The 'sharing' also includes malware that the shared system has on it.
    • Files that are illegal can be spread through file sharing.
    Please read this information on P2P Warning to help you better understand these dangers.

    I had the same issue and I solved this by switching off the preview pane in explorer.

    Hi,

    I couldn't figure a way to fix it. I did upgrade my system to Windows 8 and found the problem has disappeared. So I guess it must be a system problem....Not sure if this will help you....maybe do a system repair might work...
