I decided to use Outllok 97 instead of OE6 so I could see my calendar and tasks. I decided to see if MS had any patches. They had arch97en o97attch o97dtfix outlimep the last of which I have not patched yet. Since doing the other patches, my PC freezes when playing XTension. I think it did this some time ago and I think it was cured by other Windows updates, but I can't remember. Does anyone recognise these patches and know the suspect file that causes the freeze? The freeze seems random.
I think I have solved it. I have loaded the latest DirectX 9. I guess it has overwritten files screwed up by the Outlook patches. I have been running for a while now without any freezes and they usually happen within 30 to 45 minutes.
