Hi, 
I have a very odd issue. I've fault tested it and it happens every time I try to resize my column (with no data). The system hangs and excel crashes. 
I have never had this issue until last week. This issue occurs on new and old documents. There are no memory errors on my system and yes its got plenty of memory. 

So far I have; 
* Rebooted
* Started Excel in safe mode
* Attempted new and old documents

Any thoughts would be appreciated.
