In the latter case, the problem probably does not lie with the interrupt mechanism at all. Are you using J/Link or Mathlink perhaps. If the simple loop fails to abort on a freshly loaded Mathematica, the only thing I can think of is a machine fault, so : 1) Does it work on another machine? 2) Have you got some flakey memory, or a bit of hard disk corruption (run the diagnostics)? 3) Are you running 7.0.1? 4) Is it possible (bit of a long shot) that your CD has got damaged in some way?
