I have MS Office XP Professional on my computer and sometimes the blue title bar flashes whenI seek to close a file or when I try to use the mneu bar. What am I doing wrong. This also happens on a very large word file (90mb) on my laptop but then it usually only haappens when I try and use the menu bar.

They also flash in the task bar to indicate that a window/program has opened.

My first use of a helproom and you have all left me stunned. Problem solved thanks to you all.

Copy and paste into Word http:// support.microsoft.com/?kbid=

Take out the space between / and s, save as Microsoft links.
