When you quit Word, the program stops responding (hangs). This problem occurs when you quit Word any time after inserting an address from the Outlook Address Book.
This problem occurs because you have WinFax Pro version 8.0 or 8.01 installed on your computer, and you have the WinFax Pro service in your default Windows Messaging Profile.
To prevent Word from hanging, remove the WinFax Pro service from the profile by following these steps:
- Click Start, point to Settings, and then click Control Panel.
- Double-click Mail And Fax.
- On the Services tab, click the WinFax Pro service.
- Click Remove, click Yes, and then click OK.
Microsoft has confirmed this to be a problem in the Microsoft products listed at the beginning of this article.
The WinFax Pro service in the profile is only used to view the WinFax logs from a folder inside of either Microsoft Outlook or Microsoft Exchange. These logs can be viewed through the normal WinFax Pro interface. They will not affect the functionality of WinFax Pro.
