MS Publisher '97 crashes

  wee eddie 12:39 27 Mar 2003

In the last 48 hours Publisher has statred crashing every time I try to delete more than 3 items e.g. No problem deleting 'an' but crashes on 'and'.

The following details are given.

MSPUB caused an invalid page fault in
module MSPUB.EXE at 0187:0046dff6.

My first reaction is to remove the program and reinstall. But before I go ahead with this, has anyone got any other ideas or instructions.

Can you multiple file delete from normal locations, say some dummy test files in your My Documents folder ?

If this is purely confined to Publisher, we can look at that, but recycle bin corruption is quite common (and very annoying) so create a few test files on your desktop or in a folder of your choice and try to select several and delete them - see what happens and post back.

No problem with Word. I can amend and detete all Word and Excel Files.

After I posted Publisher has became worse, to the point that any alteration, of a removal/deletion nature caused a crash. Now I can no longer even open Publisher files. This is the detail

MSPUB executed an invalid instruction in

Of late. I have been worrying about possible HD failure because of crash and excess fragmentation problems. However it has been mostly related to my working on a single, large, very edited/altered Publisher file

Got this about half way through, but scan compleated it's work.

I have the IBM Diagnostics Recovery Disk, if it is recycle bin corruption. Would Diagnostics pick it up?

Down loaded the Zipped folder containing MFC42.DLL.

When I unzipped it. It was empty. what did I do wrong

  wee eddie 21:32 29 Mar 2003

This is how I need to do it. all I need to do now, is find the File.

Check the ram memory.

  wee eddie 14:01 30 Mar 2003

Ram fine 248 + 8mg.

Just remembered. Windows upgrade just before I noticed this problem. Something to do with Java, I think?
