microsoft word 2003 SLOW to open

Q: microsoft word 2003 SLOW to open

I am running windows xp and my Word application takes close to a minute to open up. Once open it works fine, saves quickly. I was advised to change the template normal.dot to another name....or to delete the file.....I have tried both....the first time after doing so, Word opens in a second....but then there is another normal.dot created and the next time I try to open it I am back to waiting?? any words of wisdom will be appreciated

I am using a computer in the office. There are two of us that use this computer, myself and my boss. Neither of us are really computer saavy, we understand the basics and thats about it. We only work in the office on rainy days, any other time we are outside. But we have been using Microsoft word 2003 for a few years and have never had a problem loading it until now. It takes up to 5 minutes sometimes to load the program. We are using Windows XP 2002 edition, service pack 3. The computer is a dell Dimension DM051 Intel (R) Pentium (R) D CPU 2.8GHz, 2.79 GHZ, 1.00GB of RAM. All our reports are in Word format and every time we open any report it is taking up to 5 min. to load. Is this a virus, spyware? I dont' think its the computer itself because we've never had a problem with this or any other program before. Any support or suggestions would greatly be appreciated thank you.

I bought a new Dell XPS 420 with Microsoft Works Plus 2003 preinstalled. Everything works fine except Word 2003. Certain things I try to do take forever. For instance, trying to insert a chart, print anything, copy and paste something into Word, and several other things can take 60 seconds or more to load. During this time, the program is basically froze until it completes. If I try to close it, I get the ever present ?program not responding? message.
I've tried uninstall/reinstall and ran ? repair Word?. Nothing seems to help. I downloaded the trial version of Word 2007 just to see if it would work, and it worked fine.

I have a friend how has a problem with Word 2003. It could be happening in Excel and PowerPoint, but she doesnít use those so we donít know.

Word opens fine, and if you find a file you want to open through My Computer or Windows Explorer, and you double-click it the file opens quickly.

However, if you attempt to open a document through the following method you run into a problem. If you open Word, click the Open button or go File >> Open, and than click the Look in: drop down arrow to browse to a different location it takes between 7 and 10 seconds for the menu to drop down. This happens every time when you first attempt to do this after opening Word. If I leave Word open and do it again itís fine (if I remember correctly).

The problem persists, however, as I choose a new drive to look at and begin double-clicking on folders to open them. Iíll get a 7 to 10 second delay attempting to open some folders, and virtually no delay when attempting to open others. For the most part, however, there is a delay. Just like I stated above with the Look in: drop down menu, however, once Iíve gone into a folder this way it opens up very quickly from that point on, as long as I donít close Word. If I close Word the problems start up again.

I tried a number of things to resolve the issue. I started Word in safe mode and that didnít work. I tried turning off DDE something or other by going Control Panel >> Folder Options >> File Types, choosing DOC, clicking Advan... Read more

I keep getting error messages when trying to open files created in Word 2003. The files burn to cd without a problem but when I try to open them off of the cd I get the file may be corrupt try to use recover text option or open and repair option. The odd thing is these word 2003 files open in Office xp without any issues. I have also got an error stating I do not have adminstrative rights on my cd drive. The cd drive is not a network shared drive so I am confused by this error. I have replaced the old cd-r/rw drive with a dvd r/rw and still get the same problems. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

Hi,

I've a little problem, when I start Word 2003, it takes around 20 seconds and then I can use it.
Some times there is even a force close. (then the word 2003 freezes)

And if I type: winword /a in Start it starts up directly.
So now my default program for .doc files = winword. (which is slow)
I can't change it to /a.
(/a is add-ins??? so winword /a = word without add-ins?)
Can i disable those add-ins?

Do you have any Word add-ins running currently? They may have bogged down your system a bit. One of the most frequent slow-downs for Word is having a big pile of add-ins attempt to run each time the application opens and then shutting down on close.

Often when I am opening documents in Word 2003, it takes ages for the system to respond 20-60 secs and when it does so it does it in a jerky fashion.
I have recently upped the RAM to 1 gig, so can't belive this is the problem.

Has anyone else had this problem? Can you suggest what to do to do to fix it. it can be very irritating to sit and wait for the system to respond.

Could somebody suggest a possible explanation for the Word 2003 print dialog being very slow to open, ie it takes ~40 seconds compared to opening instantly in Excel 2003, Wordpad etc? This happens even when a very small file of a few words is to be printed.

The operating system is Windows XP and the printer involved is a networked Konica Minolta C252, which is also the system default printer.

I have created in Microsoft Word 2003 on an XP OS some lengthy documents. I created them using a view setting of 150%.

I sent them to my employer, who is using Windows 98 and Microsoft Word 97. My boss opened them with his system and they displayed on the screen at a view of 200%. He wants me to send him Word documents that he can open from the CD-R that I send that will automatically display at 100% view on the screen so that he does not have to set the view for each document as it displays.

So what is the answer.

Is there a way that I can save my created documents so that when my boss gets them on a CD-R that they will open on his system at a view setting of 100%.

Is there also a way that his system can be set to default to 100% in reading from the CD-R.

My boss does not want to copy the documents to the system hard disk from my sent CD-R, preferring to read and copy directly from the CD-R that I send, so that the original documents will not accidentally be changed.

Any help would be appreciated.

You can either get yourself a newer copy of MS Office or download and install a copy of Libre Office which will open all MS Office documents.

Libre Office is free, unlike MS Office.

I recently purchased an ASUS Windows 8.1 64 bit computer.  I transferred my Microsoft Works Version 8.0 word processor and spreadsheet files from my old computer onto the new computer.  I just purchased the Microsoft Office 2013 Home and Student Edition (64 bit version) from an online vendor and installed the software onto my new computer. 
 
I have no problems opening my Works spreadsheet files in Excel.  However, when I attempt to open a Works word processor file in Word, I get gibberish.  I did some research online and found out that there is a Microsoft tool called Works 6-9 Converter which allows one to open Works files in Word.
 
I downloaded the Works 6-9 Converter tool from the Microsoft Support website and installed it on my PC.  However, when I subsequently attempted to open a Works word processor file in Word, a dialog box appeared with the error message "Word cannot start the converter Wks9Pxy.cnv" and the file did not open properly (i.e., I got gibberish).
 
I did a little more research online and found out that uninstalling the Works 6-9 Converter, then downloading and installing the Microsoft Visual C++ 2008 Redistributable Package, and finally reinstalling the Works 6-9 Converter may correct this problem.  I followed these steps, but unfortunately when I attempt to open a Works word processor file in Word, I get the same error message and the file does not open properly. ...

With Word, I have words that i use that are correct, but it keeps underlining them in red and i know you can add the words into its dictionary so that this doesn't happen for those words anymore. I forgot on where you do it, i know i should know as i've been using word since Office '95. I just always click on ignore. Someone did tell me once, but i need my memory refreshed.

A:Microsoft Word 2003 - Need Help

The easiest way I found was to run spell check and when the pop up dialog box appears on words not in Word's dictionary( red squigglies) , there is an option to ignore, change, etc., or "add to dictionary". It is there that I make a decision whether to add or not, and I add it to the general dictionary. Check the HELP to determine how to set up a *special* dictionary, if that is what you want to do, just for these words.
Hope this helps.

Hum.. You want to insert a mathematical expression in your text? Or do you want Word to calculate a quare root for you?

In case of the former, you have to install an Office component called Equation Editor.
If you have that, then you can do Insert->Object->Create New->Microsoft Equation

Otherwise, you can always draw the formula in Paint and then copy-paste to Word

Hi, I've been having this problem with MS Word 2003 for a little bit.

What happens is, I open the application, and the Word box pops up like it's about to open like it should, but then it takes forever to open, maybe over 10 minutes or so, unless I just end the process like I usually do since it takes so long.

The only thing I've noticed different about anything when I open it is, Navw32.exe starts running, and if i end that, an alert window opens that says "The document C:\Documents and Settings\David Solis\Application Data\Microsoft\Normal\Templates.dot is still infected. Do you want to delete this file?". I'll click no, and Word opens.

Any idea what any of this is, why it's doing it, and how to stop it? Thanks!

I have never had a problem with Microsoft Word until now. I can use Word fine on my computer. In the past week or so, however, when I send Microsoft Word documents to people, sometimes they say they can open them and sometimes they say they can’t open them. It depends on the person.On some of my e-mail clients (I have multiple e-mail accounts), I can open the files I send myself (i.e. I will send an e-mail to my multiple e-mail accounts and I will attach Word documents to that e-mail. On some clients I can open the files I send myself, and others I can’t...I did a check disk /r (checkdisk repair) on March 9 and it fixed the problem. I could send Word documents and everyone could download them and I could send Word documents to myself and download them via AOL Mail, Yahoo, and everything. And then the problem came back again.When I click on the file in the mail client that doesn’t read the documents correctly, the attachment comes up as saying that the mail client interprets the .doc file as being related to Notepad (specifically listing Notepad as the program it wants to open the file in), not Word. Then when I try to open it (either straight from the e-mail or after downloading the file back to my hard drive), it tries to open in word and gives me the converter message.When it was working for a little while on March 9, the way I knew a Word document would work correctly even before trying to open a file is that AOL.com Mail would list it as being a Word doc...

A:Microsoft Word 2003 nightmare

I haven't read nor absorbed your entire message.
There's one thing that comes to mind immediately - your clients may have slightly different Word. If they have 2007, you need to send them the 2007 version or have them open as previous version (if possible).

Long ago there was an office update which added some sort of converter to my Office2003. Perhaps if you save as some other than 2003 .doc it would work. That update permitted me to open a document or two someone sent me.

Edited: what is one supposed to do with that megaupload site? All I see to pay lots of UK currency. I'm willing to try to open your
files in my Office2003 but not under those conditions.

A:microsoft word 2003 will not load

do a search on your system for normal.dot and when you find it, rename it to normal.old

try to open Word

if it works, and you have no macros or personal changes made to your normal.dot, then simply delete normal.old

Hey,

I have a problem where Word 2003 crashes when I open a document, especially if that document is an email attachment, or something I havn't authored, it happens about 95% of the time. It usually freezes and i can't type, or use my mouse on the page, i usually have to right click on the window bar to close the window. It then pops up a window that I have chosen to close the unresponsive program and asks me to send notification to microsoft. I have dloaded all the latest security packs etc., checked the msoft website, visrus checked and run the office recovery software as well and havn't had any luck in fixing the problem.

Any ideas?

Cheers,

In the old microsoft word, when you had more than one document open, they would all use the same window, and minimize within itself. However I now have 2003 and when I open a new document, they are completly seperate windows and use two buttons on the task bar. I liked having all my documents open in the same program that i can control with the x in the corner. This is hard to explain so i Hope you know what i am talking about. I know it is possible to change this setting because ive used antoher computer where it has done this. I just can not find it in the options or anywhere I have looked. Any help would be appriciated. Even maybe a term i could use to look for it. THank you
 

A:Microsoft word 2003 question

In Word 2002 (XP version) you can go to Tools > Options, click on the View tab and clear the checkbox labeled "Windows in Taskbar". According to the Word Help, this will force all Word document windows to be represented by a single button on the taskbar. Word 2003 should be similar.

I have a new laptop with Windows 7 pre-installed. I'm running Microsoft Office 2003 and want to change the normal.dot file, but I can't get at it. Windows Explorer tells me it's at C:\Users\Owner\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Templates\normal.dot, but I don't see andy AppData in the Users\Owner display. Currently to open a Word file, I basically go through C - Users - Owner - My Documents - WORD.DOC

Good Morning, I got a new laptop. Successfully loaded out MS Office 2003 from disc. I was successful in registering/validating it with Microsoft. All works fine. I am able to perform all Word functions. The only problem is every time I open Word it presents me with the End User License Agreement and asks that I ACCEPT or DECLINE. I have accepted it over 10 times, but it will ask me again the next time I load Word.

Any ideas as to whats going on? Or, any suggestions as to how I can stop the EULA persistence.

I've got some strange behavior going on with .doc files at the moment. Whenever I try to open a .doc file from Windows Explorer or a desktop shortcut, Word opens with the error message "Word experienced an error trying to open the file. Try these suggestions. * Check the file permissions for the document or drive. *Make sure there is sufficient free memory and disk space. *Open the file with the Text Recovery converter."

After clicking OK, the .doc file then opens in Word, apparently with no problems at all (I can edit, save, etc.). So basically the error message seems to be wrong, since the file does open properly.

I can open .doc files from within Word (File -> Open) with no error message.

The issue is more of an annoyance than anything else (since the file eventually opens up just fine), but I imagine it'll just become more irritating as time goes on. Any suggestions on how to resolve it? I've been poking around in the Folder Options -> File Types in Explorer without a clear sense of purpose.

I'm running MS Word 2003 SP3 on Windows XP Service Pack 3. If you need any further info, please let me know.

I have XP and Office 2003 installed. Today I received an e-mail in Outlook Express/IE that had two Word docs attached. One opened easily. The second won't open, even though it is a revision of one I've received and opened in earlier versions. The error reads: Word experienced an error trying to open the file. Try these suggestions:
*Check the file permissions for the document or drive. [No problem here]
* Make sure there is sufficient free memory and disk space. [No problem here]
* Open the file with the Text Recovery converter.

Following the instructions, I first saved the document to my hard drive, launched Word, clicked on Open, and browsed to the document. Then I tried both suggestions, and neither worked. The first was to use the FILES OF TYPE drop down and click on RECOVER TEXT. That yielded the same error message. Then I tried the second, which was to click on the down arrow next to the OPEN button, but that failed also.

I've asked the sender of the document to check at their end, but haven't heard back yet.

I also received a second error message, as follows:

Run-time error 1025.
The rest of the error message was the same as before. I Googled this run-time error, and it means "DLL is not supported."

Whenever I try to open a saved Word document (or even a PowerPoint), the file doesn't open and I get the following message:

"The file ____ is not available.
You may be encountering this message because an anti-virus program is not allowing the file to open. This can be caused by one of two conditions. Either the anti-virus program needs to be updated (due to a compability problem with this application) or there is a virus in the file but the anti-virus program cannot properly remove or process the virus it has found....etc."

Then when I close the document, I get the following message:
"The file Normal already exists. Do you want to replace the existing file?"

I've tried deleting the file. I've restarted my computer, deleted "normal.dot" through my computer's search engine, and then opening word. I've tried renaming the file to "normal.old", and followed the instructions after that like I found on a website.
Also, I went to Tools > Macro > Macros and gone to the "Macros in" list, clicked "All active templates and documents", but there weren't any macros listed there.

I tried using the Macro Organizer, and there weren't any macros listed there either.

Hello,

I currently have about 30,000 lines of macros. Occasionally the people I work for want an updated list of all the macros in that file (most are user specific) so that they know what macros they have and if then need a different one or edit a current one.

What have been looking for is a way to print the names of the macros only, and not the entire marco file/code.

the first macro looks something like this..

Sub hinj()
'
' hinj Macro
' Dr. H's Corticosteroid Injection
'
Selection.TypeText Text:= _
"DESCRIPTION OF PROCEDURE"
Selection.TypeParagraph
Selection.TypeText Text:= _
"The patient's * was injected with."
end sub

(cut short for brevity)

then the next macro, and so on and so forth.

What i have been looking for is a way to print a list of the macros but not the macro themselves.

IE.. I wold like it to print out...

hinj Macro
Dr. H's Corticosteroid Injection

hhyal
Dr. H's Hyalgan Macro

hspi
Dr. H's Supartz Macro.

so on and so forth with all 375 macros printed.

Is there a way to do this? I would be most appreciative for any clue as to how to do this.

Open up the Start Menu and go to Word. Right-click on it. Open up its Compatability tab which is the third tab.

2003 is an XP product. Therefore, Word (and Excel and Access if they're 2003 versions) should be run in compatibility mode for "Windows XP (Service Pack 2)."

If this is not so, check the box and select Windows XP from the list to make it so amd OK the box to close it.

A:Microsoft Office Word 2003 problem

I have seen several suggestions for dealing with this problem, some work for some people, others don't and
some of them are potentially destructive, in my opinion, therefore I do not propose to supply any links.

However, I will tell you that I had the same problem recently. I run Office 2003 Professional Edition and
downloaded the Office 2007 trial. It was not for me and I uninstalled it. My problems then started,
with these 'Please wait while Windows configures' messages.

I tried all the usual 'repair' methods, but the only thing which fixed the problem was a complete
uninstall and reinstall of Office 2003. That would be my only suggestion and in addition,
I left the setup files on my hard disk, when asked, because there are some features that are not
immediately installed by the program, even on a full install and it saves digging out the CD/DVD
whenever you come across these features. (Don't remember too clearly which ones, I think it
may have been in connection with Publisher).

I appreciate this may be stating the obvious. If you can find an easier method, which you trust,
good luck.

btw, I am assuming that your computer is virus, adware, malware and spyware free.
You should run something like Malwarebytes and SuperAntiSpware if you haven't
checked recently; presumably you have a realtime antivirus scanner.

Hi,
I'm having a rather perplexing problem.
Lately [perhaps over the past week] I have noticed that if I go into one of my folders and double click on a Word document; the Program opens but the document does not.
If I try to open a document after having openned Word first, everything works fine; I just can't double click on a Word document and have the document open in Word.
I have played around with the file associations but that has made no difference.
I even went to the effort of uninstalling Word and then reinstalling it - the problem remains.
Just to be sure nothing stayed in the Registry from other Office programs, I uninstalled all of Office and reinstalled - the problem still remains.
I can't remember downloading and installing a new program that coincided with this happening so I am not able to pinpoint a culprit clashing program.
Any ideas would be much appreciated.
Thanks in advance

My problems with Word and Vista, haven't found anything in past posts or elsewhere to help resolve:

I have Vista Premium Home Edition (new laptop, no upgrade). Have Office 2003 Professional installed, am able to open documents in Excel, Outlook, Powerpoint, and other Office 2003 programs. However cannot open previously saved Word 2003 documents (get error "cannot find file"), and when attempting to start Word 2003, the system hangs and ultimately closes. I am then able to open Word in Safe Mode but after detecting and repairing, checking to make sure updates are up-to-date (SP3 etc), still no change. I have uninstalled and re-installed Office 2003, and still have same problem: Can't open/use Word 2003 with Vista OS.

This definitely seems like an issue with Word, as the other programs seem to work fine. Any clues?

A:Can't open/use Word 2003 with Vista OS

Hi, welcome to the forums your problem is most likely caused by a corruption of the universal template Normal.dot. You will need to go to control panel, folder options, view and put a check in "show hidden files and folders" . Then open explorer and navigate to C:\Users\xxxxx\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Templates
Where xxxxx represents your user name

Locate Normal.Dot right click and select delete. Make sure word is not open at the time. Restart and open word Windows will create a new Template all should be good.

I'm trying to get a Word template that has the auto-text "file name and path" inserted into the footer. I want it to update automatically whenever I save the document into a new directory. Right now it stays the same. Can anyone point me in the right direction? This is a work computer that does NOT have the ribbon.

thanks!

I've run into a bit of a weird issue with my Microsoft Word. Whenever I highlight/select text, and press any button (space, "x", backspace, delete, etc.), instead eliminating all that text and performing the action that I pressed, the text just stays in place as if I never highlighted in and the action is carried out at the beginning of the selection. I've never seen anything like this before, and I'm really not sure how to search in the help function for it, so does anyone have any idea how I might fix this? Let me know if you need more information or anything and I'll be happy to share. It's just a very irritating, very bizarre issue. Thanks!

Just recently something has changed with my Microsoft Office Word 2003 app.

I'm a writer and I have always been able to drag my pages that I have written today to a folder in My Documents and the same file would stay on my desktop for immediate access later. I realize other may not work this way but it is how I prefer to work as it has become my habit

When I try to drag and drop it now, it drops into the My Documents folder but it no longer remains on the desktop.

Now, in conjunction with this problem, I have another new problem, which is that when I write a page of text in Word and save it to a My Documents folder it doesn't go there. Also when I save a picture to My Pictures as I've always done it won't be there when I look for it. Something is preventing me from saving things and I haven't a clue what it is. I have to open the My Documents folder and drag the Word text page into it. It's the only way I can save stuff for some reason.

Can someone please tell me how I can fix this problem?

Thank you in advance.

Hi Guys

I just install Microsoft word professional 2003 edition along with the service pack for office 2003, but windows XP can't seem to ready any of the files.
this is what i installed, is there something missing or do I need a driver?
office2003sp3-kb923618-fullfile-enu
office2003sp3-kb923618-fullfile-enu(2)
office2003sp3-kb923618-fullfile-enu.exe.part

I'm getting messages of: is not a valid win32 application, for the first file, and the second file it just loads the service pack, and the third file Windows need to know who created the file. I have windows look it up on the internet but it wants to download a file like "PC Mighty Max" to correct the problem. Should I do this?

Any help would be appreciated.
Thanks
Dale
 

A:Microsoft word professional 2003 install problems

spursume,

The first file [office2003sp3-kb923618-fullfile-enu] is the Office 2003 SP3 file, the second file [office2003sp3-kb923618-fullfile-enu(2)] is just a second copy of the same file. Both should be 117.7 MB in size. If neither of them are the correct size, you will need to re-download the SP3 file here.

The third file [office2003sp3-kb923618-fullfile-enu.exe.part] is an incomplete download attempt of the Office 2003 SP3 file. This is indicated by the .part extension.

You indicate that the second file " just loads the service pack." This exactly what it is supposed to do. Did you receive any errors during the install? Did the Office 2003 CD install without errors?

I'm having a strange problem with Microsoft Word 2003 SP3.

It only happens on new docs. I'm a writer and when I open ongoing projects in Word everything is fine, but when I open a new doc. my Page Setup doesn't work. If I set it to have 1" of space top, bottom and sides, it doesn't work on the top. My first line starts at the very top of the page.

Also, the ruler up the left side should be dark where that top inch of space should be, but it isn't because it's not working. I discovered a temporary fix in Page Setup by setting the top space to be 2" and the sides and bottom to be 1". However, even doing this I don't get the dark inch or so at the top of my left margin ruler.

I did a repair in ADD Remove Programs but it didn't change anything. It might be a corruption in Word because I have the same Office 2003, SP3 on my laptop and I've compared all the settings on both computers and they appear to be identical.

Has anyone here run into this problem, and do you think uninstalling and reinstalling Office might solve the problem?

Thanks in advance.

Upon a fresh boot everything is fine. After running Outlook 2003 for a while something changes and the only way to fix it is to reboot.

The Problem: I open an incooming email with an attached Word document. I click on the attachment to open and nothing happens. I close the email and Outlook locks for about 10 seconds, then the screen goes blank except for some grid lines (for about a minute). After that the program returns to normal except for this problem.

I'm using MS Office and Word as my email editor.

Nothing frustrates me more that having to reboot while I am working. Any ideas?

In windows 7, in my email program, a Word 2003 doc will not open. I must save the file to a folder, and then open it. This is the only type of file for which this occurs. I have gone thru the Default Programs drill and tried all types of options, but with no success.

Just so we are on the same page. You of course do have Word installed on the Win7 machine(?).I believe this might do the trick.Please read the entire page as it has some pre-installation recommendations.The reason you are likely experiencing the problem is MS changed the file format from .doc to .docx.

Hello from first time poster here.

Word 2003 will not open files; I must open Word, then click on file via the Explorer interface, or click on the file and use "Open With" (Word) each time.

I have read many posts regarding Word xx not opening and the Normal.dot fix thing before posting this, and in fact have worked for years fixing other user's problems for a State agency. No joy, here.

Ann Troy's advice is great, and I followed what she said as well as my past experience, with negative results. I have:
1) Renamed all Normal.dot to Abnormal.dot, restarted the 'puter.
2) Done the Fix/Repair thing with MS Office 2003
3) Removed Word, Reinstalled with MS Office 2003
4) Completely Reinstalled MS Office 2003, then did the Normal.dot thing.
5) Cleaned out all instances of Normal.dot (both user profies and the MS
main template folder), rebooted (as with each operation above) and
then added in an old (previously working) Normal.dot file from an
archived and normally disconnected USB hard drive file.

Other Office apps - PPT, Excel, Access - all work perfectly. I use a standard McAfee Anti-virus application supplied by my ISP (Comcast).

Although I can get Word to work this crippled way, this is what I do for a living and it's killing me in time to have to hunt down each Word file instead of clicking on the shortcuts to just open them in Word.

This occurred overnight - last night. One minute everything worked; then an hour later I returned to the ... Read more
