  • 1. Invalid Shortcuts
    Since installing Office 2003, I get very frequent errors reported by Norton SystemDoctor for invalid shortcuts. These are ALWAYs related to shortcuts with the following format C:\DOCUME~1\DONALD~1\Application Data\Microsoft\Office\Recent\"file name". The reason is always that C:\Documents and Settings\Donald Eager\Local Settings\Temporary Internet Files\Content.IE5\0HQR81EF\"file name" cannot be found. I frequently purge my temporary internet files. How can I prevent these shortcuts from being formed and then becoming invalid?

  • 3. Unrequested Attempts to Install Feature from Office CD2
    The dialogue box for installing an Office feature from CD2 keeps popping up on my screen without me making any attempt to install a feature. When I click OK, an error message appears stating that I need the file "DATA2.MSI". I do not have the Office media with me. The continual need to deal with the dialogue boxes is causing me problems.
  • 4. Updating to Word 2002
    I have Word 2002 upgrade CD, which I want to use to upgrade Word97 on a WIN98-SE machine. Installation gives error message: MS Office XP requires newer Windows system components not detected on your system. You need: Core System & Data Access Components. How do I get them for WIN 98-SE? Thanks, CMA
  • 5. Lost Media Disk
    This is a bit of a strange request, but I lost my media disk for MS Office XP Pro. Dell will not replace it and Microsoft sends me to Dell. Any ideas? I use this disk a great deal, but of course I can work without it. But, it is far easier with it. Help. Scott

File Name Too Long For Recycle Bin - Cannot Delete

Somehow when transferring old emails from one IBM T40 to the My Documents folder on another, identical, IBM T40, much of the body of the text of an old Outllook email message somehow became part of the file name.  XP will not let me delete the file and gives me an error message that the file name is too long for the Recycle Bin ... and it will not let me rename it or move it either.  It is in a subfolder of My Documents and I have tried deleting all of the folders above it as well and I get the same message.

I have been on the phone for several hours with IBM Techinical Support and they have no solution as well, other than to call Microsoft.

5.Can you retrieve-If you DELETE the file 'Inbox' from the Recycle bin on desktop

I was trying to delete some files that involved several 
pop-up banner ads & windows from interfering with my 
search for telecommuting jobs.  While clicking around on 
the internet, somehow this SPYWARE program began to write 
itself on to my hard drive, so I went into Windows 
Explorer to FIND FILES or FOLDERS to find it & DELETE 
whatever was associated with it!  Well, in the process, I 
ended up sending these files to the RECYCLE BIN on my 
desktop to get rid of them.  However, in the process of 
DELETING them, I also deleted a file 'Inbox' that I 
thought was part of the problem.  I pray there is a way to 
retrieve these emails I accidentally deleted!!!  PLEASE 
HELP ME!  These were very important emails regarding 
employment!  Thank you.
