PowerPoint encountered a serious problem with Articulate ribbon

I'm aware that there has been multiple posts on this matter, but feel that this is something that needs to be addressed by Articulate.

Why should I have to uninstall Office completely, when the issue seems to be with Articulate? This is a time-consuming effort. I have had other 3rd party addins on the ribbon (on another machine) which have never caused a problem.

I have a brand new laptop (literally 2 days old) a new install of Office 2007 and a new install of Articulate Studio which I purchased a few days ago. I am yet to be able to publish a presentation, with Articulate stopping working around 80-90 slides in. Nothing else is installed on this machine (other than chrome) and no other processes are running ...

It has a 2.8GHz processor, 4GB of DDR3 ram, with all files located on a 1TB hard drive.

The sole purpose of this machine is to publish Articulate courses. To date, we're 0 from 6.
