Q: Microsoft outlook 2010

Cannot start microsoft outlook. Cannot open the outlook window. The set of folders cannot be opened. The information store could not be opened. Can anyone tell me how to fix it?

A: Microsoft outlook 2010

Hi Larry welcome to SF . Try these steps
Method 1:

Start->Start Search > then type the following -> "Outlook.exe /resetnavpane" without the quotes.
(Look for the space between outlook.exe and /)

Method 2:

Check if Outlook is in a compatibility mode:
1> Open My Computer>Local Disk C>Program Files>Microsoft Office>Office 14>Outlook.exe.
(If you are using a 64 bit machine, go to C:\Program Files(x86)\Microsoft Office>Office 14>Outlook.exe)

2> Right click on Outlook.exe and click on Properties and then click on Compatibility tab. Check if you have any check mark in any of the compatibility mode options. Make sure you also click on the option "change settings for all users" tab at the bottom of the same screen and look for similar check boxes in the window.

3> If you see any check boxes in the compatibility mode options, uncheck all the boxes and click on Apply and OK.

4> Try to open outlook again

Yes, I just recently installed Microsoft Office 2010 Pro onto my computer. I have run into a bit of a problem. I wanna make Microsoft Outlook 2010 the default email client for my user side and I wanna leave Outlook Express as default for another user on my computer. I cannot seem to figure out how to do this because once you pick a default email program on one user desktop it also makes it the default for other users on the computer. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

Hi nallum

How many email accounts and Inboxes do you have?
Are all the accounts IMAP accounts? If so, separate Inboxes (.pst files) is the designed behavior.
POP accounts should all go to the same Inbox.

What is your configuration?

hi forum am now using Microsoft outlook on windows 8 and an issue has just come up i can not find where my sent messages are being stored at all they are not in the outbox or the sent items any ideas where to look at all any help would be greatly appreciated thanks

A:microsoft outlook 2010

Go to File > Options > Mail. Scroll down to the 'Save Messages' section, is 'Save forwarded messages' and 'Save copies of messages in sent items folder' ticked?

How many email accounts are you using (are they being saved to the sent folder of another account)?

Are you using POP3 or IMAP (IMAP may have a "Save sent items in the Sent Items folder on this computer" option in the email account settings > more settings section.

Hi there,

I'm using Thunderbird mail and download my mail via IMAP, This has got a great advantage as I can access my emails on my iPhone and iPad.

So I switched my Dad to IMAP too. He is using Outlook 2010 and it works great however the problem is that when moving a mail from the inbox to a folder in Outlook 2010 it takes a bout 5 -7 seconds to move (looks like it communicates with the server while you wait) and by POP it takes less then a second. Is there any solution for this?

Because by Thunderbird it takes the same amount of time, no matter if you use POP or IMAP.

Your assistance would be highly appreciated.

Thanks in advance for all your answers!

Schedule View in Outlook 2010.

Microsoft Outlook 2010 has a new feature called Schedule View that makes it easier to schedule time with your co-workers. Schedule View is a new horizontal layout for the Outlook calendar that displays many calendars at the same time.

I just installed the Office 2010 suite and I am pretty happy with everything except outlook. I am simply using it to manage my gmail account and I am having very slow performance:

The Send/Recieve function almost never works due to the application freezing when it is trying to synchronize the inbox

Deleting each email takes forever due to it almost always freezing .

Even when I turn off the auto-preview it is painstakingly slow to click through emails and open them or delete them.

Any tips on fixing these problems? Settings I'm missing? Any similar experiences?

Thanks in advance !

I am running Windows 7 Home Premium on my hp laptop. I have Microsoft Office Professional Plus 2010 for students.The last two (2) days my Outlook has not been responding after I double click on an email message to open and read it. Once I've read the email, I click on the X to close the message, and once I'm back to the list of messages Outlook is not responding.I then press <ctrl> <alt> <delete> to end the Outlook task. A box comes up and says it's not responding. Another box comes up saying Microsoft is trying to repair it, then it re-opens and the whole process begins again with it freezing after a little bit.I went to Microsoft's website and repaired the entire Microsoft Office program.I also followed their steps to repair the Outlook data file for my gmail account with no luck by either.I have not installed any new programs. My antivirus (Avast) is up-to-date.

A:Microsoft Outlook 2010 Not Syncing on Several PC's

How do you create your account in Outlook? Exchange, POP, IMAP?

Are this the last PCs connected to account? Then you may have too many devices connected to this outlook account and you will have to delete some of old devices. This is valid for exchange connections. I'm not sure about the limit, but will check later.

Go to Outlook online and check the settings.

It is nice to finally post a solution instead of a problem, which I had when I upgraded to the Windows 10 OS. My Outlook 2010 would not let me in but it turned out to be an easy fix.
Access was denied because I, the administrator of the computer, did not have permission to access the Outlook Files (pst). Kind of strange since I am the ONLY administrator but none the less, by searching for the file, I found I could change the access in properties under the security tab. I had to change ALL the files to my Name for access, SYSTEM and Administrator were already listed, something that comes with the pc I guess.
Changing access and allowing my name to access the files opened Outlook 2010 and all is working well now.
This was NOT my first course of action but it was the last one.
Hope this helps someone.

Hello all,

I hope this is the right place to post my current issue.

Last Friday (6-21-13), our email servers on outlook as well as website were transferred over to a go-daddy server. All seemed to go well when I came in on Monday. I had all my old emails still there but then the tech walked me through the process of getting new emails. I was able to receive new emails but in the process it seems she had me overwrite my old email file. So now I can't seem to recover any of the old emails. My pst. file still seems to be enormous so I would think the info is somehow there. We had our IT guys work on this for over 12 hours and they were unable to help.

Has anyone ever been able to recover outlook emails?

Any help would be so greatly appreciated.

Thank you.

Are these files you are working on local to your machine or are they over some sort of network? If they are network files, it may be timing out trying to create temp/caches of the file you are working on as undo procedures. If it's a network file save a copy of it to somewhere local on your computer and try editing it.

Hi guys,

I have been referred to you guys as I have heard you are the best in the business for answering tech questions, so here it goes!

I was wondering if it was possible to use Microsoft Outlook for organizing and scheduling meetings when people have another email server/software (e.g. gmail, yahoo). What we need is for clients to be able to have access to the calendar and see times when the consultant is available, and to select a time that they are available. This is to stop the constant back and forth of suggesting times when we are available.

(I have looked at online booking system software that integrates and syncs with Microsoft outlook calendar HOWEVER the main issue is that out company uses Citrix Receiver ( client software that provides access to your XenDesktop and XenApp installations) and the group IT of the company have put restrictions on certain applications and software’s we can download. Many of the online booking system software that I have looked at are restricted thus if microsoft outlook can do it that would be amazing)

Have you used Outlook in this manner before prior to going to Outlook 2010? There are additional settings that need to be configured for RPC over HTTP if that is the way you were connecting before. If it was POP or IMAP you need to configure your connection that way.

Setup for RPC over HTTP. I think you have to do the initial setup from in the office.

Hello referee07;

Copy your .pst file from your old computer to the new one or your portable hard drive.

To launch the Outlook 2010 Export/Import wizard, first go to File menu, navigate to Open, and click Import.

In the Import And Export wizard, select Import from another program or file option and hit Next

Under File Type, select Outlook Data File(.pst) and hit Next

Now choose the file to import, select the options, and hit Next

Once done, finally select the folder to import from(if you want to import complete data don&#8217;t change any settings) and make sure Include subfolders is checked. You can either import the file to the current folder or choose the folder.

Hope this helps!

I'm using Outlook 2010 connected to an Exchange 2010 server for work. Outlook was setup as cached exchange mode but that has since been changed. The emails also disappeared from my phone's inbox too... it's as if everything was deleted and Exchange figured that's what it should be and synced everything that way. Deleting my OST didn't resolve or resync anything. I ran the scanpst tool on the ost file which reports 93 errors, but as I read the scanpst tool can't repair an OST and thus doesn't do anything.
 
Does Outlook have some sort of log that may explain what on Earth happened? I can't find any error messages or any other reasons for what may have happened. My view settings weren't changed, nothing has changed on my end. There is no spyware / malware installed on the PC as far as I can tell. No real issues in the Sync issues folder other than a Forms syncing issue which seems to be related to Exchange needing a patch (but can otherwise be ignored).

A:Outlook 2010 / Exchange 2010 randomly deleted inbox email?

Are you the only person using that Exchange server who has this issue? Check with the IT department to see if they can recover the emails in your mailbox from the server. It's possible they recently did some maintenance on the mail server that caused this issue. That fact that both Outlook and your phone are having this issue points to this being an Exchange server problem, as Outlook uses autodiscover and MAPI while your phone uses ActiveSync to connect to the server.
 
Do you have access to your email using Outlook Web Access? If so, log in and see if the emails are there. If not, it's definitely a server issue.
 
If your mail is still on the server, one thing you could try is re-enabling the cached Exchange mode, saving the change, and then restarting Outlook. The last thing to try is to delete the email account profile and recreate it. Make sure to get the proper settings from IT if you don't already have them -- although since you are using Exchange and autodiscover, that's usually just a case of entering your username and password when you recreate it.

I'm running Windows 7 Professional and just upgraded IE from 9 to 11. Afterwards, I observed that Outlook 2010 was not downloading pictures (instead showing red x's) and Excel 2010 embedded internet queries stopped working. 
I think I've cornered the problem, but can't seem to fix. I have also observed that IE's temporary internet files (TIF) folder may be missing (Internet Options>Browsing History>Settings>Temporary Internet Files shows nothing under Current Location)
and the allotted disk space is set to zero and cannot be changed. If I input another number (no matter the number), I receive the following error message:
"Please select a value between 8 and 8 for how much disk space Temporary Internet Files may use."
I have tried renaming the following RegEdit keys, but to no avail: Cache and LowCache (both under HKEY_CURRENT_USER>Software>Microsoft>Windows>Internet Settings>5.0). They get replaced when IE11 is re-opened.
The actual values within the registry keys are as follows:
Cache>Content>CacheLimit = 8192 (Decimal)
LowCache>Content>CacheLimit = 256000 (Decimal)
This is driving me crazy. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I had a problem with Outlook emails hanging up in the outbox and then sending as many as 14 copies of the same message. I was unable to fix this Using the "Repair" function of the upgrade installation disk (created from the downloaded file). I removed Office completely and tried to reload; however, my disk got corrupted and Outlook is no longer available. Is there a way to recover Outlook without having to purchase it separately? I am using Office Professional Plus 2010 Home Use Program.

Hello All

Win 7 Prof 32 bit
Office 2010

I've been trying to create a Task in Outlook from a Word Document that I have created on this computer. The idea is that a shortcut to the document is created as an Outlook Task. Click on the shortcut, and voila - there is the document.

The "Create Microsoft Office Task" icon DOES send the document to Outlook as a Shortcut in a Task, however, when I open the task, Outlook says:"Outlook blocked access to the following potentially unsafe attachments: Shortcut to 'document name'."

It's NOT an unsafe attachment; Outlook WILL OPEN this document if I send it as an email attachment. Outlook will open .docx files types.

This is a one person computer...no network, no sharing. And this problem has been driving me crazy. This would be a wonderful feature, if I can get it to work.

Anyone have any ideas what I (or Outlook) are doing wrong?

Hi all
Having totally WIPED office 2010 from my system and re-installed again the problem I had with the "Purge" folder not appearing now is SOLVED.

However you still don't get a line through the deleted items -- but they are in Trash folder now.

This is BETTER but still NOT WHAT IS NEEDED -- as another computer with Outlook 2007 doesn't get the "Non purged" items in the inbox which it should do.

IMAP should effectively leave items in the Inbox until purged -- otherwise I might as well go back to POP3 - more fiddly to manage whern you leave stuff on the server but it works.

What I'm resigned to doing now is to use the REST of the office 2010 suite (EXCEL etc) which is really good but stick with Outlook 2007 for email.

Every day I send out excel documents that I then convert to pdf's. I use the same excel template on each document. The only thing that changes in each document per recipient is the "name" "company" & "email" fields in the excel document.

Question: Is there a way I can get these documents to interface with outlook so that when I select more than one person to receive the document (as many as 30 people will receive the same document), and auto populate the contact info "name" "company" "email."

This way would save me a few steps so that I don't have to pick a contact... type all their info in the fields... send. Select my next contact... enter appropriate info in the fields... and repeat and repeat.

We are running Exchange 2003 SP2 and our clients have Office 2010. Our Outlook profiles are created automatically by using Group Policy to set a registry key which points to a PRF file with all the Outlook settings. Lately, many of our users are reporting that their emails are getting stuck in the Outbox. If you look at their Outlook profile, they have two Exchange accounts listed. You cannot delete either of them; it gives a message that this is the default email account.
 
The immediate solution is to recreate the user's Outlook profile. This allows the stuck email to send. The real issue is that this keeps occurring. Recreating the Outlook profile sometimes fixes the problem for a long time, months maybe. But other times the problem occurs the next day. This is happening with users who have established Outlook profiles as well as new users logging into their PCs for the first time. I've attached the code from our PRF. Any help is appreciated, as we have around 400 active users and we're constantly chasing after this issue.

A:Outlook 2010 Email Stuck in Outbox; Corrupt Outlook Profile

Couple steps you may apply...
 
1. Repair the offline file with a Microsoft utility called SCANOST.exe. I’ve seen this file reside in a number of different locations, mainly within Program Files. It might be best to search for it with Windows or Google Desktop. SCANPST.exe will also work, though you’ll have to go digging for your outlook.ost, which should be near c:\Documents and Settings\ %profile%\ Local Settings\ Application Data\ Microsoft\ Outlook\ outlook.ost. If your file is significant in size, you’ll save a lot of time with the repair operation by not creating a backup. Because if the repair finishes successfully and Outlook still bombs, you’ll need to.
2. Shutdown Outlook completely, including any runaway outlook.exe processes in the task manager. Open Mail in the Control Panel and before you delete your profile completely, write down the server settings! There’s no need to worry about backing up your mail as it’s stored on the Exchange server. (Essentially, you’re deleting that outlook.ost when you drop your mail profile.) Now, start Outlook and it will create a new profile, where you’ll configure the server with the information you wrote down previously.

Yesterday, my Outlook (2010) stopped retrieving e-mail from the Comcast server.  When I tried to fix it today, it still wouldn't work.  All the settings were correct, but it wouldn't retrieve my e-mail.  I deleted the account and recreated it.  Now, Outlook points to a new .pst file instead of my old Outlook.pst file, named [email protected]  To make matters worse, it doesn't delete the mail off the server.  Before, when I would open Outlook, it would download new message to my Inbox and delete them off the server.  The new messages would stay permanently in my Outlook inbox.  No more.  Now if I manually delete one through my Internet browser, it also deletes it out of my Outlook Inbox.  It’s as though the new account is just a window to the Comcast e-mail server.  I tried changing the Root Folder Path on the Advanced tab of the e-mail account settings to point to the location of my Outlook.pst folder, but that made no difference.  I also tried deleting a recent Microsoft update (KB3054976), but this did not help, either. This is a complete disaster for me, as I can't even send e-mail now, except through the server.  Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Hi,

I've just started using Outlook 2010 instead of WLM 2010, because it is getting too slow and really bugging me.

I'm able to send/receive mail from a web account (from a website I administrate), my Gmail and ONE windows live account, but my main email (the second windows live account) just wont process.

Attached a screenshot of what happens.

Like I said, it's weird this is happening to just one of my Hotmail accounts, but it's so annoying to have to use two email clients, or one client and one browser.

This seems to be a very unreliable thing Outlook Connector does, but is there any way to fix it? I've tried repairing/re-installing Connector, repaired Office, re-added the account, and deleting the OST files. still no luck.

Hello Richard and welcome to Seven Forums.

I'm not a fan of Outlook so I don't have a lot of experience with it. Having said that, I remembered an old Microsoft Answers forum thread about moving 2003 .pst files over to 2010.

Before attempting to move any emails I think it would be helpful to back them up, make a system image, do something to protect them should the unthinkable happen.

Hi there

In Outlook 2010 now if I click on a Mailto or email address link in an email I want outlook to open another window with the email address in the TO column.

Now the wretched Metro Mail app starts with the nag about Ms account etc etc.

Is there any way I can CONTINUE to use outlook like it USED to behave. I don't want or need that stupid Metro mail app -- whoever thought of or designed that particular app should be slowly drowned in a pit of Bovine excrement together with the Manager for allowing such a stupid piece of software "Out of the Door".

I've temporaily solved the problem by sending these emails from a W7 virtual machine - but I'd much rather have OUTLOOK work the way it's supposed to. I believe the same problem occurs in Office 2013 too --I'm not running Office 2013 but I believe it's similar (and Office 365 for that matter).

(Is there perhaps a default EMAIL program setting I can set up somewhere. I can't seem to find it -- probably haven't had enough BEER yet !!!!.).

Update --finally Found it -- you need to set the default in the MAIL APP as well to outlook. You need to set the default in OUTLOOK as well !!! . I'll post screenshots just in case someone else has a similar problem. (CTRL panel ==>Default programs)

Cheers
jimbo

Problem: Outlook starts normally with a POP3 account in a POP3 Outlook profile. However, I have a work Exchange account which I configured using instructions yesterday. Worked fine. Yet today, Outlook crashes - fails on opening Microsoft Exchange Account. Hangs and then forced exit produces Microsoft error report. On restarting, Outlook says that "outlookaddin.dll" caused a serious error and has been disabled. Disabling it means that Outlook no longer pulls down emails from Exchange. Re-enabling it causes the crash again, Catch-22.

Versions:
Dell XPS M1210 - brand new.
Microsoft XP Professional SP2 (fully patched)
Microsoft Office Outlook 2003 SP2 (fully patched)
McAfee SecurityCenter pre-loaded by Dell.

I configured the Exchange profile yesterday and it worked fine. Changes -- possible cuplrits? -- in the meantime:

1. A large McAfee patch was installed semi-automatically.
2. Attempted to install Treo 650 Palm Hotsync. This did not complete successfully. Hung while hotsyncing to Outlook. Then uninstalled successfully.

What I've tried, but which does not fix the problem:

a. Detect and Repair run within Outlook completes successfully.
b. Disabled and uninstalled McAfee Spamkiller.
c. Remove the Exchange profile through Control Panel > Mail, and create a new one with a different name.

Suggestions very gratefully received!

Microsoft Outlook 2013 (365) continues to crash every 2 months on my laptop. I have had 3 sessions with Microsoft support online since November. They are unable to fix the problem so it won't continue to reoccur. They have reinstalled it on 3 occasions and within 2 months, Outlook is unresponsive. Cannot receive/send any email. All my email I have to get on my iPhone using pop secure server from GoDaddy redirect. It not GoDaddy cause I can see the email if I go to GoDaddy email and they say it is an Outlook issue with Microsoft.....

\\\When I first bought my laptop, it was running windows 7 and home and student 2010, I then upgraded to the win8 release preview,and i was still able to use word, powerpoint, etc. Now when i upgraded to windows 8, they are in the "windows.old " folder, when i try to open them, an error message pops up saying that the file is not installed. How to i get these programs back??? I paid money for this!!!

A:Microsoft Office 2010 gone?

You will need to re-install Office 2010. Sounds like to me when you did the upgrade you didn't upgrade with the apps setting.

Hope that helps. You should be able to use the Office Key you have for 2010 as long as it's on the same computer it was originally installed.

Hope that helps.

I have installed Office Home And Student, however when i attempt to open it, says enter Product Key which i have done many times. however some of the Office programs open but not all??

A:Microsoft Office 2010

Hi there

1) Can you post a screen shot -- the only time I've ever been asked for an Office product key is when you start the INSTALL process. After installation you will get an Activate Office screen the first time you run any office application.

2) what Office programs open ?. you should only basically have Powerpoint, EXCEL and WORD applications in the student and teacher office editions.

3) Although this should really be 1) - Did you INSTALL office 2010 correctly. It's possible also you had some other versions of office on the machine too --these should really be removed before installing Office 2010.

I just installed Microsoft Office 2010 Professional Plus on my netbook, but whenever I close Microsoft Word, it doesn't close and leads to it being "not responsive". How do I fix this? Nothing else has the same effect...except for Microsoft Word.
I had Microsoft Office 2010 Pro Plus installed, but since this weekend the Microsoft Word just wasn't working properly. Thus, I gave it a go and tried to uninstall then reinstall it a few times. None of those times worked out.

A:Microsoft Office 2010

Whenever installations get borked, I always recommend uninstalling with Revo Uninstaller before attempting to reinstall. Be sure to do the "Advanced" search, and delete everything that is found (Office leaves a lot behind).While you're at it, Publish a Snapshot using Speccy. I could probably guess at what hardware your netbook has, but I'm still curious. Sometimes large programs freeze on netbooks due to a low-power processor like the Intel Atom. I'd blame Office first, but we'll check both options before making a conclusion.

I cannot download Microsoft Word Starter 2010 - I keep getting a message saying that I am not connected to the internet - although I am and all other programs are working.

A:Microsoft Starter 2010

A common problem from what I've heard. Here's the suggested fix:

1. click on Start

2. Type "appwiz.cpl" and press enter.

3. Check if Microsoft Office 2010 is in the list, you'll need it later.

4. Click on Microsoft Office Starter 2010 and select "Remove". This will open the standard uninstaller of Office 2010.

5. Click on Yes in the window that just popped up.

6. Go to Start > All Programs > Microsoft Office 2010.

7. Click on "Use", and in the next window, click on "Open". This will re-install Microsoft Office Starter 2010.

Good luck and keep us posted!

I just got a new desktop computer that is running Windows 8. My old computer, which was hit by lightning and made inoperable, had Microsoft Office 2010 on it.

I bought the new computer, which has no Microsoft Office on it, other than an offer to buy Office 2013.

This may be a dumb question but can I download Office 2010 since I had it before or will I need to buy it again or buy a newer vesion ? I have no product key for it because it was pre-loaded onto my old computer.

If so, as an alternative, are there any free programs out there that operate like Microsoft Office ? I have a few thumb drives that I cannot get into now because they are requiring Office to open them.

A:Microsoft Office 2010?

It was probably an OEM license which means it died with your old computer. You would need a full office license for it to be transferable which would mean you would have disks and a box with a license key or you would have an MS store login where you could manage your purchased products.

Try this Apache OpenOffice - The Free and Open Productivity Suite

or this LibreOffice 4 is here!

They are free.

I purchased a used laptop without a CD Rom/DVD player. Though, it does have an SD slot. I want to install my Office 2010 on this computer but obviously, it's on a CD Disc. Is it possible to copy the Office disc to a SD card and install? Yes, I know I can purchase an external CD/DVD drive, but I rarely use it and wanted to avoid purchasing something I will rarely use. Though, if that's my only option, then I'll do so, but wanted to see if there were other options.
 
Thank you.

Having just "one" great pal with a clean computer and a DVD/CD writer will work for a start!
 
Next you would need to extract the ISO file and inject it into the SD card..this is where another BC member who has

Quote:
I found this to be a patch to the problem...
Easier solution to the above problem. It would appear that when downloaded normally, the browsers are flagging the file as being potentially unsafe, whereas DownThemAll! is not. It would also appear the the PowerPoint 2010 programmers failed to handle this in the code. So, the easiest way to get around this error is to navigate to the file on your computer, right-click it and go down to properties. In the box that pops up, go down to the security section (at the bottom) and unblock the file. Open file.

might want to uninstall the other versions of office first. just save your .pst files etc and give it a whirl then, having more than one office is like having more than one anti-virus - they fight for who gets to open it.

I'm just wondering if the jump from 32-bit to 64-bit Office 2010 is worth the effort just like the jump from 32-bit OS's to 64-bit seems to be for the industry.

I read that Microsoft advised not to make the jump for Office 64-bit as it's too early and will give organisations some kind of compatability issues. They were saying to let 64-bit mature and consider it in the 2013 Office. What will you do?

A:Microsoft Office 2010 32-bit vs 64-bit?

Not sure why they'd make a 64 bit Office and then say don't jump on it.

I really am not sure if anyone can help with this problem without restoring to factory settings or reinstalling windows because i don't want to do any of these.

Here's the problem, my brother and i were using the computer for work stuff and this is a new laptop with Microsoft Office 2010 preinstalled so we installed it using Office Starter to use Word.
Basically i uninstalled it by mistake and had to do a system restore and since then it was saying there was a problem with licensing but because it was preinstalled there is no key and since then i've been trying to sort things with system restore and made them a whole lot worse, i can now not install Office starter at all it's saying is:

"There is a problem setting up Microsoft Office Starter 2010"

"Windows cannot find c:\program data\microsoft\OEMoffice14\ostarter\en-us\welcomedocument.dotx"

"Unable to install Microsoft Office because of missing or corrupt files. Contact your computer manufacturer"

So im thinking im a lost cause unless anyone has suggestions but as i said i dont want to do any drastic measures like restoring to factory settings.

Thank you.

Repair Office Click-to-Run products

IMPORTANT Repairing Office Click-to-Run products require an Internet connection to be available during the entire repair process.

The files you created by using Microsoft Office are not deleted. However, you can choose to save the Microsoft Office settings or customizations that you created in the Office programs.

WINDOWS 7
In Control Panel, click Programs, and then click Programs and Features.
NOTE In Classic view, double-click Programs and Features.

Click Microsoft Office Home and Business 2010, Microsoft Office Home and Student 2010, or Microsoft Office Starter 2010, and then click Change.
For the Remove Office user settings check box, do one of the following:
If you want to save Microsoft Office settings, such as Ribbon customizations, do not select the check box.
If you don't want to save the Office settings, such as Ribbon customizations, or if you are having a problem with settings that you want to fix, select the check box.
NOTE If you want to save the Ribbon customizations but not the other Office settings, export the Ribbon customizations first (Ribbon customizations are not available in Office Starter 2010).
Click Repair.
