alright, i can't figure this out for the life of me.
I have a microsoft word document saved in my documents folder on my internal hard drive. Its not there. Once I do a search for it, it shows up on the search as being there and then it appears.
If i restart the computer then it disappears and i have to do a search for it for it to reappear.
any guesses?

also, could this be related. The numeric part of my keyboard locks up my computer.
I need to do a force quit. I can use the numbers up top, but the key pad to the right of the keyboard is no good.
another mystery.
please help

very strange. try repairing permissions, run cron scripts, reset pram, and after doing a search for it and you see it, try dragging it to the desktop.

Well.. I suggest copying the file. Changing its name, or altering its extension, then changing its extension back to what it was.
