Articulate is locking up on me


Running PP 2007 and the lastest download of Studio 09under Windows 7

Presenter keeps hanging up on me and I have to use Task Manager to stop everything in order to move forward.

When I look inside task manager I see

Annotation Translucency running

my PP running

PowerPoint slide show running

I end task PowerPoint slide show - nothing changes

I end task Annotation Translucency - nothing changes

I end task PP - and I get a document recovery task pane

I choose yes and click o.k.

Then I get a Microsoft Visual Basic window "Can't quite at this time"

I click ok

and I get a PP has stopped workking Windows is checking for a solution to the problem

After which PP restarts and I open the file from the recovery panel to move forward

Any way to avoid

Its is start to happen more and more

I am still running into this problem.

I have tried saving after every Articulate addition.

That seems to reduce the frequency somewhat.

But then this happens again.

I am wondering if this could possibly by a file corruption problem

since it just started the last time I opened Articulate in PP 2007
