  • 1. Missing Fonts
    I have a user that is missing fonts that she used yesterday. They do not display in the c:\Windows\Fonts folder however they do display in some Publisher documents and not others. Why would the font display in one file and not another? How come the fonts seemed to have vanished Thank MA
  • 2. Office 2007 latency
    My company recently upgraded from Office 2003 to Office 2007. We are now having a problem with latency when we run any of the office programs. We found that the default file location drive was set to a network drive. If we change it to a local drive on the computer the latency goes away. This was carried over from when we had Office 2003 and seemed to work fine when we were running Office 2003. What I trying to find out is why we are getting the latency with this setting now after we upgraded to office 2007.

  • 4. Blocked formats
    Using Office 2007 on Windows XP. I tried to open a doc file and got the warning: This error occurs if you try to open a Microsoft Office document and the file type for that document has been blocked by a registry policy setting. To help secure your computer, Microsoft or the administrator of this computer implemented a registry policy setting that prevents opening this type of file. I followed the yellow-brick road to 922849 which says: Locate and then click the following registry subkey: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Office\12.0\Word\Security\FileOpenBlock I diligently searched but could find only the one category "Systemcertificates" under "Microsoft". What am I doing wrong?

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.
