  • 2. Office random start times
    Hi, One of our users is complaining of random delayed startups. When the user double clicks on any office document the first time after start up nothing appears to happen for about 30 seconds, then the document will appear, then the next few documents will load properly and quickly and then another slow one etc. This problem plagues all the office programs in the suite which the user uses. Any suggestions are much appreciated. -- Douglas Head A+, HDA, MCP 2003 Australia
  • 3. Why won't Word 2003 convert a file that requires 2000 premium?
    I backed up my dad's files a while ago on his old computer and now he needs them. He wrote a short book and is now wanting to open the file on his computer but it says he needs Office 2000 Premium. I had him email me the file and I tried to open it in Office 2003 Profession Word, but it will not convert. Why is this? Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks.

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.
