Has anyone seen this before? I put XP on a Compaq Pentium 600Meg 10Gig
HD.
All fat--no NTFS...OK..all runs fine, except that when I go to save a
Word or Excel file to a network drive, the PC shuts down, reboots, after
it saves a corrupted file.

I've tried unloading and deleting Office2K, reformatting and reloading
the whole thing...and I don't see anything about this on the MS faq
website...does anybody have any thoughts re: this? All suggestions are
appreciated.

Cheers,

Windows XP has a default setting to "Restart on failure"

Right click on "My Computer" and select Manage.
Expand the Event Viewer category and look through each of the three
sub-categories for the red flagged error records. The date and time
of these should correspond to your restarts. Double click on an
error record to see the details of the error.

You can change this restart behavior if you want.

Click Start, Settings, Control Panel, System, Advanced

In the Startup and Recovery section, click on the "Settings" button
to open the Startup and Recovery window.

In the System Failure section, uncheck "Automatically restart",
Click "Apply", "OK"

After that change the computer will no longer restart when a system
failure occurs. Instead it will probably throw up a "Blue Screen Of
Death" with a STOP error message and then halt completely, requiring
a manual power off and restart (or reset if it has a hardware reset
switch).

But the contents of the STOP error message will give a specific clue
as to the underlying cause of the problem.

I'd also suggest you make sure all of Office 2000 updates are installed.
There are 3 service packs on that version. See
