CAD crashes out when clicking an object before command, after insert of xref

I'm using AutoCAD 2006 LDD at my office and I'm having an issue lately.  I'll try and explain in the simplest terms possible.

 

After I use the INSERT or XREF command, if I click on an object (line, text, etc) without issuing a command first, AutoCAD will crash.  When I say it "crashes", I mean the AutoCAD window simply goes away and the program closes.  I don't get an error message, or option to save, or anything.  It simply closes as if I clicked the "X" at the top right.

 

Has anyone experienced this before?  Any thoughts on what might be causing this?

 

I've learned to cope by saving immediately after an insert of xref, clicking an object to force the crash, and reopening the drawing I was working in (works fine at this point, and future inserts/xrefs don't seem to cause the problem again in that drawing).

 

PLEASE HELP!!!

Did this problem just start recently, or has it always been the case since the year 2005 when you installed LDD2006?
Windows System Restore does wonders for software that start acting funky: then there is a the full remove and reinstall option for LDD2006.

Try the suggested Windows fix in my first reply.

Looks like my options for system restore don't go back before the first of this month.  It has been going on longer than that so I think that's out.  The idea of a full remove and reinstall of AutoCAD is extremely undesireable.  Any thoughts for a system variable or AutoCAD file entry that might be causing this that I could check in to?

No such variable, sorry: maybe others have ideas to try, sit tight and wait.
