    My fiancee has an account set up on my TiPB and everytime she tries to use Microsoft Word or Excel it crashes on start up for her. We switch over to my screen and it works fine, switch back to hers and the same thing happens... it crashes.

    Any ideas why?

    I'd bet it works when you log out and she logs in, but not with fast user switching.

    Microsoft will have to patch that.

    It used to work just fine, this started happening with build 7B80 and now that I've got the final release on my comp it's still doing it.

    One thing that is really annoying me is iTunes can only be running on one account. If you try to launch it a second time, it gives you a dialog box telling you to ask the other user running it to quit. I find this rediculous.
