I cannot open any file in autocad. Autocad starts and you can draw away, but it freezes when you: hit the open button (either on short-key or menu), save (same as open), or when you browse for a block to insert. I can open a drawing through windows explorer, save it, then close, but if I tried to save as or open whithin autocad it freezez. I've installed .net framework 3.5.1.


It's a brand new computer (got it two days ago)

- Dell XPS9100, i7 3.2ghz, 18gb ram, ATI Radeon HD 5800, windows 7, 64bit.

Any ideas what's wrong?
