An intermettent user of ArcGIS Desktop who recently switched from ArcGIS 9.3 to 10.0 (SP 3) and am experiencing an issue when opening a map document created in 9.3 with an interpolated surface (IDW in our case) created with Geostatistical Analyst.   The layers appear in the Table of Contents and the globe spins but before anything is displayed in the Data View it crashes and brings up an Error Report dialog box.

Does anyone have any idea what might be going on and what the solution might be.  I've sent in error reports to ESRI but I'm sure they get swamped with such replies and am not really expecting a reply.

Running on Windows XP.
