    I'm on my 2nd Optiplex from Dell just in 5 months. The first I
    returned. Way too many errors in Microsoft Small Business Edition
    2003, I uninstalled and reinstalled, too many problems. A number of
    them involved not being able to use the mouse in word, particuarly when
    opening an attachment sent to me via Outlook 2003. This one I had
    Windows XP professional and put on AVG.

    With computer #2, an 210 Optiplex, I have Windows XP, Norton INternet
    Security Suite and the rest if what came with the computer. Started
    having a recurring memory could not be read error when shttuing down
    (about 7 times now). And, I am having problems in Word again. Can cut
    and paste text from an email, but then I was trying to paste it into a
    word doc. No mouse action available. Had to close out of the emails
    and then it took. ANother time, I was just working in a document and
    trying to bold text. Nothing happened with the mouse, had to wait and
    it worked.

    3 times this week I couldn't send but could receive in Outllook 2003.
    Verizon DSL did not seem to be the problem.

    I also had to disable power settings so I could continuously use the
    mouse, but that resolved itself.

    Anyone have such an experience/ can shed light on this?

    I can't isolate what the problems are and neither can the
