We are having a problem with the Novell Client 2 sp3 on a few Windows 7 32bit machines. The error is listed below. There is nothing consistant leading up to this error in the event log. But shortly after this error happens, certain applications (Excel, Outlook, Adobe Reader...) will hang and refuse to close, and an attempted restart hangs at logging off and the computer has to be forcefully powered off. Uninstalling and reinstalling the Novell client did not help. Does anyone have any ideas?
