Opening documents in MOSS causes IE to crash

When trying to open documents in SharePoint 2007/ WSS 3.0, such as a word document or powerpoint presentation, Internet Explorer crashes.
 
I’ve come across this a couple of times with end users and tens to happen on systems that may have multiple versions of IE or multiple versions of MS Office applications installed.
 
This causes a conflict on the desktop computer of owssupp.dll appeaing in duplication versions.  The solution is to get rid of the duplication.  Full details at…

This problem occurs if the following conditions are true, in the order in which they are presented:•You install a Microsoft Office 2003 product on the computer.•You install one or more 2007 Office system programs on the computer.•You repair or update the installation of an Office 2003 product.In this scenario, the older version of the Name.dll file becomes the registered version. When the Owssupp.dll file is used, it tries to use functionality that is not available. This condition causes Internet Explorer to crash (stop responding).

Sending out multiple email links from SharePoint 2007

Question:
 
I am trying to email from Sharepoint, but I want to email several documents in one email.
I have tried:
               > Send To
                               >Email Link
 
But I do not seem to be able to email more than 1 document – can you tell me how I can do this ?
 
 
Answer:
 
Unfortunately there is now easy way to do this other than how you’ve already described.
 
One thing you could try is creatingan Announcement in the announcements web part with links to the documents and then alert your users to the announcement. However, copying and pasting links it into the announcement is hardly any different to creating an email and just as time consuming.
