When you open a Microsoft Office 2000 document from File Manager and then change to another directory in File Manager, you may receive one of the following error messages:
"WINFILE caused a general protection fault in module WINFILE.EXE at address."
"Winfile has caused an error in WINFILE.EXE."


To work around this behavior, use Microsoft Windows Explorer to open all Office 2000 files.


Microsoft has confirmed that this is a problem in the Microsoft products that are listed at the beginning of this article.
