  • 1. Possible to Install lite version of Office Enterprise programs?
    Programs included Enterprise 2007 have MUCH more than I need. Is it possible to "partially" install Word, Outlook etc basic features since I don't need the 1001 tools and features of all the programs?
  • 2. Reactivate problems with MS Office Pro 2007 after uninstall-reinst
    Hi, New genuine copy of the above purchased and installed OK in September. Recently I had cause to uninstall it and then reinstall (on the same M/C). Now I can't activate it and am therefore left with reduced read-only functionality. I've tried both the activation assistant and Word and Excel Options-> Activate and nothing happens. I've tried deleting the opa12 file (as recommended) and uninstall/reinstall again plus updating to SP1, but no joy. Any ideas?? Thanks & regards, -- philb762
  • 3. Word 2007 "save as" freeze
    Why do Word 2007 and Excel freeze when I try to save my documents? I read about an update that started KB905... that I should delete, but that file isn't in my installed updates. Any ideas. I'm running on Vista if that helps.

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.
