I just purchased a PC running Vista. Can anyone tell me if Vista is compatible with MICROSOFT OFFICE 2003 ?
My machine came pre-loaded with a 60 day trial of MICROSOFT OFFICE 2007 but I'd like to use software that I already own rather than spend more $$$ on a different version.
I have been using Microsoft Office 2003 student edition since Vista Ultimate 32bit Beta. The functions I use work OK.
I switched from 32-bit XP to 64-bit Vista and my Microsoft Office 2003 isn't working on Vista for some reason. Is this supposed to happen or is there something I can do or something that I can download to make it work with Vista by any chance??? Or is there nothing I can do to make Office 2003 compatible with 64-bit Vista? Do I absolutely *HAVE* to have Office 2007 for 64-bit Vista?
Thanks in advance, folks!!

I have a recently purchased laptop running Windows Vista 64-bit. The computer came with a pre-installed, trial version of Microsoft Office Student and Teacher edition 2007. I purchased Microsoft Office Student and Teacher edition 2003 a couple of years ago and wish to install this on the laptop running Windows Vista 64-bit.
Will this work? I should probably go ahead and uninstall Microsoft Office Student and Teacher edition 2007 before installing the 2003 version, right? I've also done some searching on this website and others on how to do this. Some suggest installing Office 2003, then visiting the Windows Update website before opening any Office programs.
Any suggestions would be appreciated.
Thanks for your time,
I recently installed Office 2003 SBE onto a Vista system and activated it. Everytime I start up one of the applications (Word, Excel, etc.), I get a licence adherence prompt (ie I got to click that I agree with the terms of the licence agreement). Any one come across this problem? Is there a compatibility issue? (Please do not tell me I have to get Office 2007!) I have checked that the licence is activated.
Thanks in advance.
Did you install it as Administrator and for all users??
Everytime i go to a "New Message" or "Reply" i get the message "The Add in "C:\WINDOWS\system32\fxset32.dll" could not be loaded or installed.
Detect and repair from the help menu failed. Resinstalling failed. Is there any other way to stop this annoying message?
Did you install the program in XP SP2 compatibility mode with Run as Administrator also selected? If not, uninstall it, then reinstall it using the compatibility wizard.11 more replies

I just switched OS from XP Media Center 2005 SP3 to Vista Home Premium SP1 x64. I moved all of my MS Word files over to the new OS. Now I need to know if I can install my copy of 2003 Word on Vista x64 and have it run properly, and open my 2003 Word files. MS Office 2007 Home/Student comes with EXcel and PP which I would never use and would be a waste of money for me.
Any information on this would be most appreciated.
it should work fine. you will have to reinstall any office updates and/or service packs, though.2 more replies
I am finding it a challenge to scan with the 1100A. How do I do it? I use Vista and have installed the scanner as a Xerox (it does that) but I do not have a manual and cannot seem to get the instructions as to how to do this from HP? Do I need something? When I browse to Office on my computer and go to MODI and try and scan it says no scanner is installed but I don't see where to install one? And hand holding would be helpful, as I don't know where to turn. I don't even know where the scan button is on the printer.

well my cousin convinced my mom that she needed microsoft access so he brings over microsoft office 2000 and installs it... including everything im pretty sure, i wasnt here when it happened. but he installed word outlook excel powerpoint and access, but we already have the 2003 version of everything except access. and now the old microsoft outlook (2000) has taken over all email rights, as in the links from start menu and internet explorer. So is there a way to get rid of all of microsoft office 2000 except for access? Because when i tried uninstalling microsoft office 2000 it said are you sure you want to uninstall all components? so i wasnt sure so i clicked cancel, well hopefully that made sense, and please help!

I'm on Windows XP w/SP2. It had Office 2003. I've had my computer since 2004.
Before I installed Office 2007, Office '03 worked fine. Then I needed '07 for a college class and installed a trial. Office '07 worked fine, but the MS Word shortcut in my quicklaunch bar pointed to Word '03 still. Whenever I'd hit it by accident, it would try to install Office '03("Please wait while Windows Configures Microsoft Office Professional Edition 2003). I canceled it on the second screen and it worked anyway.
The second screen had this:
Installation Error: File not Found
A required installation file SKU1E3.CAB could not be found.
Before, I'd hit cancel and MS Word '03 would get to working anyway. Then I'd close it and go into Word 07. I think there was some error message, but I don't remember it. Now, I just uninstalled an Office '07 trial. The same thing is happening again, but now when I hit cancel, it says "fatal error during installation." It's a different error message from the one I got last time.
I really need help here. I've got homework due tomorrow for some online classes, and need Word to do it.
I tried going into control panel > Add/Remove Programs > Office '03 and clicking change to do the repair thing, but it led to the same problem.

In Office 2007 if I want to print I have to click on the office button on the top left and then click print. In Office 2003 there was a print icon on the taskbar that required one click. Is there anyway to setup Office 2007 so that some basic functions (print, save, open, etc.) can be accomplished with one click?

I just purchased a Win 8 laptop (HP Pavilion Notebook PC) for $400, after returning a Surface Pro 2 (total cost $1500 +).
The Surface Pro 2 with touch screen was a nightmare to use.
The HP has a no-touch screen and I like that.
I want to keep up with the technology so that is the reason for the new HP unit.
I have Office 2003 on the XP and I am aware that it most likely will not perform on the Win 8 device.
So, do I buy Office 2010 and will it work the same way, allowing me to store all my emails on the hard drive?
Or, does the new Office 2010 or 2013 store that info on a remote server (cloud)?
Additionally, is there a way to emulate Windows Xp on the
new computer, not that itís a major requirement, just curious?

Hello everyone, just wondering if someone here could help me with what is a very annoying but silly problem. It is quite hindering however as it is making my work very difficult as i am working to a deadline (monday 22nd December)
Whenever i take the cursor to the middle of an already written paragraph to add something to the sentence, as i write, all the words after what i am writing disappear/ are simultaneously being deleted.
It wasnt happening the last time i was working on this, but it has happened before, and i know that it is just a simple problem. Just wondering if anyone knew how i can fix this.
I've just been on the phone to my mother and she advised that if i press the "insert" button before typing it will fix it and it worked. Goodness knows why it stopped doing it in the first place, but if it does happen again, thats how to fix it. Thanks for reading anyway people, this one can be closed now2 more replies

I am have a TON of problems with Microsoft Office 2003 (Mainly Word and Excel). This is a work computer I am on, and I do most of my work in both of those applications (naturally, they are the ones with the problem). My problem comes after I open or try to open any application in word or excel. It will act like it is "thinking" but will then freeze up. I have to "End the process" every time. It also becomes a problem when I need to print a document because it will freeze up in the middle of trying to print.
Does anyone have any idea of what is going on with my computer?? Is there any way to fix this mess?!?! I am VERY much in need of these applications right now!
Any help would be MUCH appreciated!!

Well. Try reinstalling the program by going to the .exe installer of 2003,
right clicking on it -> going to properties -> compatibility tab-> set to Vista.
If it doesn't work do it again, and set the compatibility to Windows XP SP2

What kind of disk is this? I've never seen anything like it.

My trial version of office expires march 31st and I don't want to spend hundreds of dollars for a product key (big ripoff ). Is there any way to get another key??
I am pretty sure, if there is a way, that you wont find it here as this is not a site that encourages piracy or software activation hacks. Neither will you find password hack advice regardless of genuity of your inquiry.
I think that the only way to get Office on your computer legally is to purchase the key for it. If you know of any friends who have kids in college or school, or indeed if you or anyone in your family is completing education full time, you can get Office at discount for students and teachers which consists of sending to Microsoft an officially stamped and signed verification form (which is in the box you buy). Once MS have verified that the information is genuine, they will send you the prod key/install cd's.
I'm sure this hasn't been much help but its the only way round your budgetary problem and will keep your copy of Office legal.
If you install a pirate version or one without credentials, you may not be able to get any support or download updates or patches if you have problems and such installations could cause problems with other elements of Windows. Its alot of money for the real McCoy but the peace of mind for having genuine software in my opinion is priceless.
If you have an older version of Office try to stick with it for a while if 2003 is too expensive but whatever you do don't cut corners else you'll find yourself posting more advice requests in more technical areas of this forum at a later date and your Offi... Read more

I am running windows Xp and I have office 2003 installed. I like to make cards and invitations and prepare my photos for printing in office. Because I text wrap them to move them or size them I cannot copy and paste.
What I do not like is that when I save them or e-mail them they stay in the office page with all the tool bars and such. When I go to where they are saved they are in a doc box that has to be opened. It takes away from my creations to have them surrounded by all the toolbars and things.
Lately I have been printing and then scanning and saving, but this seems a round about way of doing things, not to mention the waste of ink. Is there a better way? Does anyone know how I can remove just my creations for E-mailing or to save?

The suite/applications have gone into what we call Reduced Functionality Mode (RFM). Were you prompted to activate the product every time you opened the application ? If so did you happen to ignore those prompts? Ignoring the activation prevents you from using the application after a month or so, without activation.
Open Word --> Click on the Office Button --> Word Options --> Resources --> Click on Activate button on the right hand side.
Activate online if the computer has an internet connection (preferrably highspeed so it doesnt time out). Else go for the Phone activation and call the 1800 number that shows up on the second step. If you dont see the number post here I will give it to ya (Dont have it right away to save you that trouble)

When I change the setting so I donít see two pages, it stays that way till I update again. Is there a way to stop settings changing when you do updates, itís a really annoying problem, as I use office programs and email a lot.

I recently installed XP Home edition, due to having an illegit copt of XP Professional. I had Office 2003 on my computer prior to the installation of XP home edition and now I can't access office 2003. Office 2003 was in C:\Program Files in Microsoft Office folder but now - due to my attempts to access it - it is in C:\Program Files\ Motive folder. It is showing up as 241MB, 2839 files/44 folders w/ "read only" (in properties) access. When I attempt to open either Word or Excel from program files I get message " Microsoft Word has not been installed for current user. Please run set-up to install the application."
How did you install XP Home? Did you format? If so, I take it you just copied the Program Files directory.
Well, you're going to need to install Office - you can't just copy the files (that's only part of the install).
You may want to consider reinstalling XP (formatting this time), then installing your apps fresh.

Go to the Microsoft Office update site here and let it scan your computer for updates. The SP1 upgrade will be detected, at which time you'll be given the choice to download it and install it. The file size is slightly over 20 MB, so it'll take awhile to download on a 56K dial-up connection. Once the download is complete, the install will occur automatically.
In Windows XP Microsoft Office Publisher 2003 I created a document that includes text, clip art and photos. I performed design checker, corrected errors, and got a clean document. I saved it and closed the program. When I reopen Publisher, I cannot open the file that I just created. It gives me an error message that Publisher Cannot Open File! No reason, no nothing. It has happened several times with different documents and the only fix so far is to uninstall Office and reinstall. It only fixes it for a short time,then I'm back to square 1 It is EXTREMELY FRUSTRATING. I purchased my computer from Dell and have asked for their help; however, they say it is a Microsoft problem. Microsoft says it is the seller's responsibility to take care of factory installed software. What now? Does anyone out there know Publisher and how to fix it? Thanks.

OK on ebay I am buying Microsoft office 2003 professional the guy said he had one copy on his system but uninstalled it so my main question is how many pc's can I install it on since he uninstalled it or did that version count how many systems you can install it on thanks
I would NOT be buying a USED copy of any software.
Can anyone please tell me where I can download
Microsoft Office Professional 2003 Trial?
A friend has asked me?
I cannot find it anywhere?
Why 2003? 2007 offers A LOT more and also allows people to open the new "x" documents from office which are common these days. He can download the 2007 version from Microsoft Product Information Center - Trial Software. It also allows you to save your files in old office extensions in case he needs to.

I have a problem because I need to learn to use microsoft access for a test and the thing is I have Microsoft Office 2007 while the school has Offcie 2003. I really need to know if it is possible to switch from Microsoft Office 2007 back to Microsoft Office 2003 and how?
I don't know if it is possible to revert, but would the school be willing to allow you to download access 03 for home use as you are a student there? I know that at least some colleges allow this. If you haven't already asked them it won't hurt to do so.
edit: if they did allow this you would probably have to promise to uninstall the program when no longer a student.
"Microsoft Office 2003 Service Pack 3 is the culmination of several years of improvements in the product suite," the company said in a Microsoft white paper issued upon the service pack's release. "SP3 improves the productivity and user experience of home and office users, strengthens defenses against malicious software, and helps IT administrators comply with regulations and protect confidential information."Security is clearly job number one for Office 2003 SP3, as the service pack contains a laundry list of security patches and upgrades. For example, instead of letting in macros willy-nilly in Excel, SP3 instead lets users control which macros run in legacy Excel files, potentially blocking malicious code. Of course, as is the case in most service packs, SP3 also patches known security holes. Microsoft has also worked to improve Office 2003's compatibility with Windows Vista, Internet Explorer 7, and Office 2007. Project 2003, for example, can now read Project 2007 files. InfoPath allows auto-complete in Internet Explorer 7 when running on Windows Vista. OneNote 2003 works better with Internet Explorer 7 than it did previously.Microsoft Office 2003 SP3 Releasedhttp://www.informationweek.com/news/showAr...cleID=201807224After downloading 3 updates (e.g., Office Pro, Visio, Project) related to the SP3 release, I installed this in a "standalone mode" to avoid any potential conflicts as Office updates are complex and can touch other enviro...

Mt computer with Windows XPSP3 was fried by a lightning storm. I have no choice but to convert to Windows 7. I have been experiencing much grief because I cannot use the software that I know and love on windows 7...until I found out about Wow64 which, outfitted with an Intel processor, will allow me to switch from 64 bit to 32 bit. so I can run my software from Windows XP on Windows 7 after all....this I have yet to try since I have not yet received the computer with Windows 7. My question is this: When I set up the Windows XP computer, I used OEM software for Windows XPSP2 and Microsoft Office 2003. Windows was upgraded to SP3 in the meantime. Now, with Windows 7 and Wow 64, I want to use Microsoft Office 2003 because I need all of the programs on 2003 and they are not all there on Microsoft Office for Windows 7. I read that, although Windows XP OEM software cannot be transferred to a different computer, OEM Microsoft Office 2003 can be used on another device provided it is still based on the original license from the OEM Windows XP software and the computer it was installed on.
Is this true? What info do I need to know to do this? What problems could I encounter?, I don't think it is illegal, but I'm no computer wizard.
Can anyone help me with this and, perhaps provide insight that I am not aware of? My LIFE depends on being able to run all the software from Windows XP on Windows 7.
Thanks for your help.

I have office 2003 pro, but only installed, Word 2003, Excel 2003, Outlook 2003 and Publisher 2003 as they are only what i use. My problem is outlook 2003, when i open to do a message i get this message "Microsoft Word is set to be your email editor. However, Word is unavailable, not installed, or is not the same version as Outlook. The Outlook email editor will be used instead. An OLE registration error occurred. The program is not correctly installed" i don't know what is wrong but Word is installed and is working fine just that Outlook is having problems with it. Since i had un-installed office and re-installed it didn't resolve this problem how can i set OUtlook's email editor instead of Word to avoid this annoying message?
Strange to have problems after installation. In case you haven't done it:
Tools > Options > Mail format.
Check the format dropdown for whatever you want, I suspect plain text.
Next two checkboxes which refer to two possible Word2003 formats should be unchecked.
Hey, all. I'm going off to a four-year college in the fall. I need an office program. I have Office 2000, but it is my mom's, and your technically not supposed to put it on more than one computer.
So...I've been looking at Office 2003 Student/Teacher Edition...You can install that on three computers, and you can keep using it after you leave college. However, I have also been looking into OpenOffice.org. It seems like a good deal. However, I have some questions:
Are the file formats compatible with Office 2003? Can I transfer between one and the other? Are there any gaping security holes I should know about? Is OO.o really better?
Its not urgent (I don't go away until mid-August), but any input would be greatly appreciated. Thanks again!
Open Office can save and create in all MS Office foemat from 4.5(1996) to the most current. Is it better. Not really. From what I have used one is a good as the other. The big diffenece is OO is free and MSO starts at $249.
I have been using OO for years and have not come accross a time when I needed MSO. If it were me? My money? OO all the way.
When I open Excel 2003 the splash screen hangs for 30 seconds to about a minute and then excel opens and behaves normally.
All other office programs such as Word etc open quickly and behave normally.
If Excel is opened in safe mode , the program opens rapidly without any splash screen at all.
Any explanations and indeed a cure for this behaviour ?

Just installed Office 2003 Professional on my laptop last night. I opened up Outlook and began to set up an email account for my "work" email via Microsoft Exchange Server. Well I suppose I did not input the information correctly, because now I get errors stating that my folders are not available, etc. That's all fine. The problem is that Outlook closes as soon as I "OK" or "cancel" these error messages. I can't even get into the program to delete this account. I have uninstalled Outlook and re-installed with no success. HELP!!!!!
You can right click on the outlook icon and go into properties to access your email profiles.1 more replies
Hello. I just got a copy of Microsoft Office 2003 and i cant get it to run. I have installed Office with the setup and i have recieved different programs. The problem is whenever i open one of the programs, i receive an error message. It says: The application failed to initialize properly (0xc0150002). Click on OK to terminate the application. Could someone please help me fix the problem.
perhaps there is a patch microsoft has released for your product that can overcome this problem. you'll have to check for thjat yourself, at office.microsoft.com
if office doesn't work out, i reccomend trying open office, a free, open-sourced office package maintained by sun microsystems. www.openoffice.org

I accidentally deleted the MSOcache folder.When i try to install Microsoft Office 2003, its says :Microsoft Office Setup did not complete successfully. We are sorry for the inconvenience. Is there anyway to download the MSOcache ?
The MSOCache folder is created when you install Office 2003 from the install disk.You are then given the choice to keep it or delete it. It's best to keep it as occasionallyyou are asked if you want to install features and if you do, the program accessesthe Cache folder, otherwise you would need to insert your install disk.So, do you have a Microsoft Office disk. If so and you are having problems setting up,you need to ensure that the program is properly uninstalled first and then try again.If it sets up OK, you will have a new MSOCache folder, if you have chosen to keep the setup files on your computer.If you have no disk, the answer is no, you cannot download an MSOCache folder.Remove the Office program through Add /Remove. If it won't go for some reason,you could use the REVO uninstaller.Freeware version:http://download.cnet.com/Revo-Uninstaller/...4-10687648.htmlThe WinCleanup Utility may also assist:MS Article (kb 290301) :"When you are working on your computer and installing a new program, the installation suddenly fails.

Can anyone tell me where I can get an easy to understand tutorial for the above - online and free (if one exists please) thanks
I wouldn't worry too much about the tutorials being for 2003. Most tutorials cover the simple things, which haven't changed since the beginning of software. I've been able to find lots of tutorials by doing a Google search. It's just a matter of how you type your search criteria. Try this, and USE THE QUOTES how I show them:
"free tutorial" Microsoft Word
Then, change Word to Excel, then change Excel to PowerPoint, and so on...
I have had this computer for years. Gateway laptop, Windows XP. Microsoft Office 2003. In May 2009 I was fooling around updating and whatever. OOPS! I may have somehow updated Microsoft Office - Now I get a message when I try to use any Microsoft Office - Word, Excel...
The message comes up and says - Microsoft Office has not been installed for the current user. Please run setup to install application.
I am the only user. Administrator. And there are no setup files that can be found. I took it in to a shop and had them reinstall the files. No luck - same message. I didn't have much confidence in the shop and figured they would charge me too much for a (hopeful) simple solution.
I seem to distantly remember this being a problem that was happening to others with the update - (I had an unfortunate death in the family and had to leave my home and computer for a few months until I could get back.) I am now home and ready to tackle this problem.
So what do ya think?
I have a new computer.
I have 'Microsoft Office Word 2003' on my old computer and I wanted to place the program on my new computer except that I can't find the cd.

Thanks to all.

Hey there, I hope someone can shed some light on this. Apologies if this is the wrong forum.
My laptop has stopped opening microsoft office applications completely, yet it still appears on the add/remove programs list. When an attempt is made to open a word file for example, a popup with Windows installer comes up and says it is installing, but nothing ever happens.
The only thing I can think has changed is I've recently been infected with viruses/malware and I also used CCleaner.. would this have wiped it? I really don't want to have to pay for a new pack.
Any help would be great!
I have a new lap top which is loaded with Windows 8. I was able to load Office 2003 but whenever I use one of the features I have to accept the user agreement. For example when I open outlook the user agreement pops up and I have to click on accept before it open. Any ideas on what I need to do?
I've seen that already. It probably happens because your account doesnt have privileges to modify Windows registry. Try to run all Office apps as administrator and see if it solves the problem.
You can also try to add permissions (full control) to this key: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Office\11.0
Good luck. Give us feedback.
Recently I got a new laptop with Vista and Office 2007 pre-installed. Since I am new to Office 2007, I would like to install Office 2003 without disturbing Office 2007. Is it possible to do so?
Sure is! Just uninstall whatever of Office 2007 is on there from START ORB > CONTROL PANEL > PROGRAMS > UNINSTALL A PROGRAM (organized view, not classic)
Choose Office 2007 (might say Trial, or Student and Teacher, etc etc etc)
When that's done, pop in your 2003 disc and go. You shouldn't have any problems with office 2003 running on vista.

I have WIndows XP Home with Microsoft Office Professional 2003 and am having a problem with Outlook. I loaded two Phone Tools software programs and have since uninstalled them. Now when I start Outlook I receive two messages. The first is found in a box labeled "WMS ST Notif Window 00000ADO 00000FBO: Outlook.exe unable to locate component". The message reads, "This application failed to start because PbkUser.dll was not found. Re-installing the application may fix this problem". <OK>
The second error message I receive is in the "Micorsoft Office Outlook" dialog box. The message is, "The add-in 'C:\ProgramFiles\mobilePhoneTools\Outl97.dll" could not be installed or loaded. This problem may be resolved by using Detectand Repair on the help menu". Are there any suggestions what I amy be able to do in order to eliminate these messages? Thanks.

For almost a month iam having this problem.Whenever i paste any words in Microsoft Office Word 2003......a Popup comes saying :Please wait while Windows configures Microsoft Office Professional Edition 2003and then it pastes.It is annoying.Each time when i paste,it comes.msiexec.exe runs in the process.I disabled it in services.Then no problem in pasting.I installed a software later,then it asked for windows installer as it is needed.Then once again i enabled it.How to stop that popup from coming without disabling msiexec.exe ?
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,
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.
Hello to all good people
Can you help me with this issue? Want to install both Microsoft Office 2003 and 2007 on one mashine. Is it possible such an effort ?
Thanks in advance!
It should be okay, but you'll have to be very careful how you do the installation:
1. Watch every step, do NOT accept the defaults all the time.
2. Install 2003 first, if you've not done it already.
3. The first thing you're asked, is WHERE to install. Create a new folder name, instead. So at the end of the path it gives you, instead of accepting 'Microsoft Office', instead type something like 'MSO2003' or whatever you'll easily remember. MS always installs multiple nested directories with the same names, so if you're gonna use two versions, you want to change the ending folder name of at least, one of them. (I have, for example, MS Office 2002 and 2003 on the same machine, so I renamed one of the directories MSO02, for that reason.)
4. After installation, shut down, go walk for a few minutes and then turn the machine on again (soft reboot doesn't work well with Office).
5. Do something else on your machine for awhile, don't just do the next thing as the 2007 installation. Give Windows time to 'populate' all its references with recognition of the new installation.
6. So maybe after an hour or so, you can now install 2007. It will notice that you have 2003 installed, and offer to replace it. Say no to that.
7. It too will present you with a default directory which is the same as the default you saw in #3, and again you want to specify a uni... Read more

I'm not sure if this is the correct forum for this but here goes...
About a week ago my MS Office 2003 did something strange -- when I opened the program the window flew off the left side of the screen and I could not click on it or get it back. There is a shortcut showing on the task bar, and I can minimize or maximize, but either way I cannot see the page, type anything or drag & move -- it is just off the screen in limbo somewhere.... I tried again tonight and I COULD open it when in safe mode (finally!!). Is there any way I can fix this problem so I don't have to be in safe mode all the time? I only use this desktop for PC gaming or creating word documents -- it doesn't go online at all, I have a different computer I use for that. Thanks for the help Oh, another thing - I did try to system restore to an earlier date only to find that this program had been turned off, so no go with that possibility...
Does your PC do the same thing with all the programs you open? Or just with Office?
As a first thought, you say it opens ok in 'Safe mode', so that seems to point to your graphic drivers being missing or the wrong version for your card.
