  • 1. Cursor jumps all around when typing...
    I've been experiencing a problem in Outlook, Word, (and NOW while typing in this message box!). While typing all of a sudden my cursor jumps to somewhere else. When in Outlook I'll be typing along and all of a sudden find myself typing in the original message instead of in the reply part of the message, or if I'm composing a message, the same thing happens, the cursor might jump up into the subject line or just disappears in Word and doesn't know where it's gone until I use my mouse and click to find it. I have Norton 360 installed, just upgraded from Norton Internet Security, this started happening BEFORE I renewed my subscription. Does anyone know why this could be happening, has it happened to you? I'm using Office 2007 that came installed with my laptop. It's almost as if someone has remote access to my computer...yeah, I'm getting paranoid - this is spooky! Thanks for any help you may give.
  • 2. Hard Drive Replacement-Office 2007 Enterprise
    I need to upgrade my hard drive on my current machine and I have Office 2007 Enterprize. Do I need to uninstall / unregister Office 2007 before Microsoft will let me install it on my new hard drive. The hard drive is the only thing that will change. Is the serial number tied to the motherboard/processor serial number(s)? I appreciate any help I receive. Thank you, Daniel R
  • 3. Office Excel, Word, Powerpoint etc. is missing from start menu
    I had been using MS Office trial and then purchased MS Office Student and Home edition. Both programs were showing installed so I deleted MS Office. Now Excel, Word and Powerpoint are no longer on my start menu (all programs). The only way I can open a file is to go documents and open them that way. I have run the Diagnostic Repair and it did not detect any problems so no changes were made. Can someone help me get Excel, Word and Powerpoint back in my start menu (all programs)? Thank you. I am running Windoes Vista Premium Edition.

No and no.  Office uses a new file format that the Genius is not written in.

1.Add a new office assistant in office XP - add back in Genius office assistant

Leave it to Microsoft to drop one of your favorite assistants

Since I searched and couldn find any way to add another assistant back into office XP (only found help with Office 97), I decided to trick the existing office XP version by renaming one of the existing office assistants and replacing it with the genius office assistant.  It worked

		Copy Genius files from Office 2000 C
		or if you still have 1 old office 2000 application:  C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office

		In the Office XP location for Office Assistants
		C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office1
		In the above directory copy over both Genius file
		So had to fool the new XP office that genius was F1.ACS and F1.AC

		Rename existing F1 assistant files to (F1-old.ACG, and F1-old.ACS)
		Then rename a Copy of Genius files {GENIUS.ACG & GENIUS.ACS} to F1.ACG and F1.ACS
		This way when Office XP looks up F1, it will actually be GENIUS >> It worked

3.Problems from changing from Excel 97 to Excel 2002 (Office 97 to Office XP)

We have got an Excel/VBA application working very well with Excel 97:
in dropdown boxes, we were able to double click an item in a dropdown
box to select it using OLEOBJECTS. As we change to Office XP (Excel
2002), one problem occurred: now, the very same action wouldn't be
able to select any item from the dropdown box, and there was NO error
message at all. It seems that the program, for some unknown reason,
skips the OLEOBJECTS.  Any one has the similar experience or knows the
back-end of Excel 2002? Is there any change in terms of OLEOBJECTS
from Microsoft when their upgrading from Excel 97 to 2002? Thanks all!
