Repair Job on XP

  User-178362 00:00 09 Feb 07

I understand if one has an XP disk with a product Key, which I have, I should / might be able to repair my problem. Could you please confirm. I deleted word.dot8 in Windows 97, this had my letter attached to it. I now have Windows 2000. The problem followed me from 97 into 2000. I was hoping and thinking installing Word 2000, I would get my back, as things are I still have a word doc with a letter attached that will not go away. My friend as fixed it so that I can get a new page up to put any info on, they are all called the same Spin drier. The problem might be because I had one word doc called doc1 and another called document 1. Any help please. If I can't fix it by Friday I will have to take the PC back to the dealer to be fixed.

As I understand it - you had Office 97 (which used Word8) and you now have Office 2000

I do not have any suggestions just yet, but may have some questions to ask when I have pondered awhile.

I'm slightly confused.

One moment you're talking about repairing Windows XP and then you're talking about repairing MS Word.

Which do you want to repair?

MS Word, sorry I was thinking one would correct the other.

XP and Word perform two completely different functions.

One is an Operating System and the other is a word-processing package. Repairing one will have no effect on the other.

As I believe was suggested in your other thread, have you un-installed and re-installed Word?

Not quite. When I want to save a Doc, I go into Save As. Would you believe there is the title Drier. I still have to delete the name Drier before I can put a new name to my Doc. Then when I want to delete the Doc from "My Documents" folder I can't A wide line goes across the page saying Open, New, Print, etc I cannot delete it. This is going to be the death of me.

Still here and so is the Drier. Do you know how I can stop this title re appearing when I go into Save As.

Try this free download - run it, and opt to let it repair Automatically.

Have a look at the Screenshot first so that you can see what I mean about Automatic repair.
