XP Office Proffessional and Windows 2000 Operating system



  • 1. Can't open Word in normal mode, suddenly. Everything has been upda
    I have Word 2003. Everthing worked perfectly fine for months, when suddenly, yesterday, I couldn't open Word up in normal mode. I can open it in safe mode. I have updated EVERYTHING in Office. I uninstalled and reinstalled Office 2003 Professional. The other programs on Office 2003 work, just not Word. Any ideas about what may have happened, or what I can do?
  • 2. History.IE5 folder in History Panel
    When I click on the History Icon in Windows XP the folder opens with History.IE5 as the header, but not history. I have checked the View Folder and selected History and that is what pops up. I have selected 3 days history under Internet options. I have removed Internet Explorer and reinstalled it. I have version IE 6.0.2900. I have done a Go Back, and system repair. At first this was just a problem on one laptop and now it is on both. I have Windows XP Home on one and Windows XP Professional on the other. After going through all these gyrations I can no longer connect to the Internet with my laptop I used a the office. I get connected to the network no problem, but can't get on the Internet when I worked fine before. I use Earthlink Total Express and they tried to help but now say it is Microsoft problem.

  • 4. Cannot open Word in Office 97
    Hi I have installed MS Office 97 Professional on my computer which is running Windows XP. I am able to use Access with no problem but cannot open Word. The message I get is - This application must be installed to run. Please run Setup from the location you originally installed the application. I have already installed SR1 and SR2. I have uninstalled and reinstalled everything twice. (I have only selected the Access and Word components to install and not the whole of Office). How can I get Word to run? Any non tech answers would be much appreciated. (I'm not a computer techie). many thanks fizz

Hi Wesa,

Yep - as strange as it may sound I suspect you've encountered a bug in
Handwriting Recognition. Try the following:

- Open your Control Panel
- Open Regional and Language Settings
- Select the Language tab
- Click Details
- Remove Handwriting Recognition

If you need the service you can install it again after you've removed
it and verified Word no longer ends when you attempt to Restore a
document window.

Let us know what you find! :-)
