office XP

  wobbler 22:20 18 Jul 03

I am having all sorts of niggling problems with Office XP running on Windows XP Pro. I ran the Detect & Repair from the help menu within Office and that failed. So I tried tht repair option on the CD, That failed. Si I tried to uninstall Office both from the Cd and using add/remove programmes in control panel and that failed. In short I can do nothing with Office. Any Ideas?

Did you upgrade from a previous version of Office, or was it a clean install on a new PC?

It has been working fine for months, but now when a document is opened the fonts are corrupt and the layout is distorted. This changes for each document in word. It was a clean install originally.

It's just a possibility that you've caught a cold!

You could try posting on the microsoft office newsgroup: msnews.microsoft.com

Search for all copies of normal.dot, and delete them all (or simply rename them to something like normal.old).

Reboot, and a new normal.dot will be created next time you start Word. You will need to re-apply any customisations you have made to your button bars and standard start-up template.

Did that and still get the same response. When I try to uninstall/add/remove Office XP, the program starts then returns to the desktop with all office windows closed down.

Have you tried the newsgroup suggested by Steven135?

It may be an installer version problem - check the links in my posting to this thread - click here
