DWG files corrupt network adapter??

We have a couple of .dwg files that were drawn in A2K and saved in Acad14
format. The first time we tried to access the files again, we got the
message saying that the file was in use (it wasn't) and asked whether we
wanted to open in read-only. If we answered yes, the computer locked up,
and all the network settings were corrupted to the point that the only
solution that allowed the computer back on the network was to replace the
adapter.

Also, these files cannot even be highlighted in Windows Explorer without
corrupting the computer.

Has anyone heard what causes something like this?? It's all new to me...

TIA

Sounds like a network issue: what is your setup?

We have W98 workstations accessing a Novell 3.12 server on which the ACAD
files reside. We have had this same setup for years with no problems. The
workstations can access thousands of other ACAD files without this
happening - it only happens currently with 2 files.
