  • 3. How do I disable Office updates from changing the default email?
    When we get Office 2003 updates from our WSUS it resets the default email client to Outlook, even though we have set it to use Outlook Express or Mozilla Thunderbird as the default. It is nice to get the updates installed on the computers, but a real pain to have to switch everyone's email client back to what we want them to use. Does anyone know how to stop Outlook from being a "Big-Bully" and taking over the default everytime we get an update. Thank you for any sugestions. Paul
  • 4. long standing problem with error 0x80070643
    Since early November I have not been able to install office 2003 updates. I have followed the knowledge base advice and the Office Source Engine is set to manual, but still no success. I suspect that it might be a problem in the registry as I had been affected by a virus and a colleague ran a registry cleaner. Am I right in thinking that the easiest solution would be to uninstall office 2003 and reinstall it? I Thanks Andrew
  • 5. Client Updates from Admin Installation Point
    Hi folks, Looking for some assistance updating Office 2003 clients from an administrative installation point. Using AD Software Deployment to deploy Office 2003 (with MST's) to our organisation. After updating the administrative install point, I now need to force clients to reinstall the SP2 version.. But - our software landscape is not all 2003 ! we are part way through a reimaging project which means about 2/3rds of our machines are 2003 (via AD) with the rest on Office 2000 (installed as part of an image, or user directed) So, I need to find a way for just the 2003 version to reinstall with the updated SP2 files - also without touching the 2000 stations, and without loosing any of the users own customisations and settings (outlook exchange settings for example) any help much appreciated.

I have Microsoft Office XP Pro on my computer.  
I have downloaded all the updates from Windows Update, 
When I go to Office Online Update site which directs me 
to the download page and select check for updates it 
starts to scan and stays stuck at at 30% and will not 
scan further for updates beyond that point.
Does anyone have sugestion or fix for this problem???

2.Inbox smart date function not working after upgrade from Office XP

We have started to evaluate Office 2003 for installation in our organization. 
 We currently run Office XP.  When we upgraded 2 existing workstations 
running Office XP, we were able to use all of the new features of Office 2003 
except one.  We have been unable to get the date field in the inbox to use 
the "smart" date format that Office 2003 is supposed to use.  For example, a 
message from a month ago still says Friday, April 15, 2005 2:05 pm rather 
than just April 15, 2005 or an email from last week says the full 
day/date/time format rather than just Monday 2:05 pm.  We have tried to use 
customize current view but have been unable to find the setting to have 
outlook user the new "smart" date feature.

3.Office XP: Help Function Stopped Working following Windows Update


We are running Office XP professional from a server.  While applying 
standard Windows Updates this week, we discovered that the Help function (F1) 
inside of the Microsoft Office programs stopped working.  A search term (such 
as mail merge) can be typed in; however, no results will display in the 
answer pane and/or the user will receive a "404" IE error that the requested 
webpage could not be displayed.  Anyone else experiencing this problem?  
Please advise.  Thanks!

4.automatic detection update function for office does not work

5.Update Labels function not working entirely

I have a user that is using the mail merge function in Microsoft Word 2007.  
First she selects the lables function and New Document, then she brings in 
her recipients by going to Select Recipients.  After that she selects the 
fields that she wants by going to Insert Merge Field, and when she is ready, 
she clicks on Update Labels.  When she does this, only the top row and the 
very last two cells at the bottom are updated.

The background was that this workstation had on it  an installation of both 
Office 2007 Enterprise and Office 2007 Professional on the same workstation.  
There must be something I need to remove or change in order for this to work.

I have entirely uninstalled both office suites rebooted, then reinstalled 
office 2007 professional on her workstation, but that didnt' seem to fix it.
