Problem: Calling "FileOpenDialog" let (Office) prgm run forever/freeze


Extraordinary Member
When I want to open a file or folder from programs I go oftentimes to a menu
Which in turn calls the default FileOpenDialog dialog box.
This worked successfully on 64bit Win7 here in the past.

However when I do this in certain (but not all!!!) Office programs like Excel 2007 now then
the call is runnning forever (=the cursor indicates in progress).

Whats wrong?

No, I don't have open network connections.

Curiously for other programs it works.
Is it due to one of the last Microsoft patches?
