  • 1. download?
    I own the cd for Office 2003, and have my key, but have a brand new netbook, without a cd/dvd. I don't want to buy an external drive right now, and am looking to download Office 2003, and use my own key. Can I still download it anywhere? thanks all!
  • 2. Insert Stopped Responding
    On two of my computers, both with Office Outlook 2003, when I try to Insert an attachment, when I hit the insert and then use the drop down arrow to browse for the file I want to attach, nothing happens. Then the "not responding" message appears. If I wait a minute or two it will jump from My Docs to the name of my laptops Docs and then allow me to carry on. If however I try to hurry it and cancel out of the insert box I get an error message for Microsoft come up mentioning Win-Word.exe. It will then crash Outlook and when I try to go back in I get a red cross with Error and then have to reboot to get back into Outlook. I have also noticed that I cannot do a "save as" in Word either. I think this has started after doing some recent Microsoft updates of both Office and regular Microsoft updates. I have tried stopping Winword in Task Mgr but that didnt work. This is only happin on laptops not on my desktop. Not sure if it matters but laptops are wireless and desktop wired. Just thought I would mention it. I know there has been some other disscussions on this before but could not see the outcome. Would be grateful for any help.
  • 3. How many times can I activate?
    Hi I recently purchased the small business offise 2007. I have activated it on two laptops but I think I am going to have to get my one laptop fixed which will involve a complete start over. Thus, I would have to re-install the office 2007 again. Would I be able to do so, or would I have to buy the whole thing again? I wanted to contact microsoft but could not find anyway to do so for free.

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.
