Windows 7: app crashing/hanging on "save as" dialog

now this is really annoying - I'm having a global problem in Windows 7: when using the system's "save as"-file dialog, the main app will just hang.

the mouse-cursor is showing progress, the whole app is hanging and I need to terminate it manually. it's happening with every app! (notepad, word, graphics app). I'm assuming it's something with the system enumerating the harddisk-drivenames or something. any idea how to fix this?

by the way - when viewing the problem details - it's telling the module - it's msonsext.dll, looks like some office thing to me.

Removing / Renaming msonsext.dll fixed this for me. Now I wonder what the correct fix is.
