    When I want to open a file or folder from programs I go oftentimes to a menu
    File--->Open
    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?
