    OK its been two weeks now.
    None of my Abode products can open a file.
    notepad can't open a file
    wordpad can't open a file
    paint can't open a file.
    and on and on
    they all crash and burn.

    problems sent to microsoft via the control panel 10's of times.
    0 solutions returned.
    What is the date and time and size of the common control I need off of the CD?

    Sounds like you're experiencing a very strange and unusual issue. I can't
    help you with it actually, but I wanted to add how I never get solutions
    either. I wonder why you have the option to search for a solution if it
    never gives you an answer. Sometimes I wonder why nothing at all happens
    after asking for a solution, when I'd be expecting to see some status. I'm
    left to wonder whether there was no solution found or if it didn't search.

    Good luck with your issue.

    Every once in a while, it will give me status on an issue. Sometimes it will
    say that xyz company's latest version fixes the issue, sometimes it says
    that the issue is currently being investigated. More often than not, it just
    says no solutions found.

    I have the very same problem with Vista Business upgrade from XP Pro

    All Open and Save dialogues crash their parent applications.

    It seems that the filepicker is broken, and I had thought that it might
    be due to some left over bit of registry from XP... but Larry if your
    install was clean then perhaps not.

    Trawling google, I have seen at least a dozen people having this
    *highly disabling* problem with Vista, and no satisfactory solutions
    (certainly not from Microsoft or their 'throw a coin in the well' Vista
    problem report philosophy).

    Any help at all would be great
