    If I open any Open or Save Dialog box, the application hangs with "not
    responding" when I try to click on a file or folder.

    Explorer lets me access the files normally.

    Any ideas?

    I am having the exact same problem. Fresh install of Vista. I have no
    AntiVirus, i have tuned off UAC . I cannot open any files or save any files
    in any application, the application just freezes before the dialog opens.
    This does not happen in Office because I don't think it uses the windows file
    dialog boxes. Anyone have any ideas about this?

    I, too, am experiencing the same hang conditions and have not been able
    to obtain a fix. Has there been any updates with regards to this

    What have you tried so far ?

    Check to make sure you do not have any network share(s) mapped that no
    exist. Also, make sure your PATH does not contain a reference to a network
    path that no longer exists. I have seen both of these cause this issue in

    Good luck.
