Here's something I got from Wolfram: Hello, This email is in regards to the corruption problems you were experiencing recently. A new front end update has become available that minimizes any possible corruption. Please try downloading the following Mathematica front end patch. http://support.wolfram.com/Systems/Windows/CorruptionPatch/UFE/ This patch replaces the following executable on your hard disk. C:\Program Files\Wolfram Research\Mathematica\4.0 \SystemFiles\FrontEnd\Binaries\Windows\Mathematica.exe Because you currently are running Mathematica 4.0.1, please follow the following instructions at this time. ----------------------- Please also download the following additional resources. http://support.wolfram.com/Systems/Windows/CorruptionPatch/AdditionalRes ources/ These .tr files replace the following files on your hard disk. C:\Program Files\Wolfram Research\Mathematica\4.0 \SystemFiles\FrontEnd\TextResources\MiscStrings.tr C:\Program Files\Wolfram Research\Mathematica\4.0 \SystemFiles\FrontEnd\TextResources\ErrorMessages.tr ----------------------- Once the patch is in place and you have downloaded the additional resources, please follow these instructions. 1) Open the Option Inspector 2) Set the scope to Global 3) Search for SafeFileOpen 4) Set the SafeFileOpen option to IgnoreCache 5) Click the Apply button 6) Close the Option Inspector By installing this patch and the additional resources, corruption should be minimized. Although I cannot guarantee that corruption will never happen again, this patch should drastically reduce your run-ins with corrupted notebooks. If you have any questions, please let me know.
