*Dear Community, I have recently installed Mathematica 188.8.131.52 (the Premier Service - related Home Edition) on my laptop (ASER Aspire 4810TG with Windows 7 Home Edition). I faced a problem that started to show up right after the installation of Mathematica: Windows crashes always, if I open a certain notebook and scroll it for few seconds. The notebook in question is a draft of my lecture and contains mainly a text (e.g. text cells) and some short and very primitive pieces of code. To give few examples of the code from that notebook look here: *1 - 3 \[Nu] /. \[Nu] -> 3/5 *or here: *f = (T*c)/\[CapitalNu]*Log[c/(\[CapitalNu]*E)] + B*c^2 + \[DoubleStruckCapitalC]*c^3; \[Mu]p = \[CapitalNu]*\!\( \*SubscriptBox[\(\[PartialD]\), \(c\)]\ f\) // FunctionExpand // Expand Posm = c*\!\( \*SubscriptBox[\(\[PartialD]\), \(c\)]\ f\) - f // Expand *or here *Panel@Style[ "Some text to be highlighted", 16, Blue, Bold] *There are some other pieces of a code of the same type in that notebook. The code seems to be quite harmless. However, Windows crashes and restarts. Another thing that crashes Windows in the same manner is launching the Outlook Express. This also started to happen first after the installation of Mathematica. Other notebooks as well as other applications seem to work well. I checked for viruses with NOD32, seems to be no of them. The same "criminal" notebook is running fine on another machine with Windows XP and the same Mathematica version. On this machine I did not face any problem with this version of Mathemactica (at least, not yet). My question: Did somebody of you already experience things of this type, and what did you do in this case? Best regards, Alexei * -- Alexei Boulbitch, Dr., habil. Senior Scientist IEE S.A.
