offline synchronized files cause system to freeze
Teachers laptops have synchronization set on log in and log off via Group Policy. (Server 2003 with XP clients). There have been a number of instances in the last few months where when the teacher tries to edit a file offline, using MS Office, the program starts to open and then just hangs/no reponse/freezes. Looking at Task Manager, I see 2 instances of the program running with 'not responding' by their entries.
This is mainly happening with Word.
So far I have tried reinstalling ms office, repairing the ms office installation, repairing the xp installation and even reimaging/reinstalling systems in some cases. In one or two instances something seems to have cured it but quite a few cases, the problem persists.
I can't find a matching post or info page on this, though I see quite a few on outlook syncing problems.
Clearing offline files cache
Hallo thanks for the reply - I have in fact tried that but only on one laptop, so I shall try it again.
