I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I am trying to figure out how to delete unwanted graphic elements from Word templates. Specifically things like vertical design-type lines in the resume formats such as the ones that occur in Word 2003 and the newest one for Vista/2007.

I can't seem to find any way to remove these elements, nor can I see them in the document maps or format boxes.

Thanks for helping.

When did Microsoft Word change to show you .docx I have just noticed this today I know they were saved as that unless specified. But it didn't show up when you saved a word Doc as name "April" for e.g. it was saved into you're documents as April and you didn't see the .docx. I have only noticed this today April.docx, is everyone else the same?

I have a Word document that serves as an advising sheet for students. I would like for the checkbox to change color when it is selected---for example, the box turns red when it's selected, and goes back to it's default color when unselected. I've looked for coding help all over the internet and I tried to figure this vba coding stuff out, but I'm having problems and I'm sure I'm not doing it right. Keep in mind, I know basically nothing about Vba code and I'm basically learning on the fly. I am running Word 2013. I really appreciate any help that can be provided. Thanks.

I've got a document about 41 pages, broke into multiple sections. Track changes have been on, I've been able to edit the file for a while up until an hour. Now, when i make any changes this document just closes, this has been tried and same phenomenon occurs on 3 other computers, so it must be something with the file? Any idea would be appreciated.

Some interesting characteristics:
when change is made word shuts down.
but when you use auto recover and word opens back up, the change that caused word to close is actually made.

A:Microsoft Word 2003 closes in error when I make a change with track changes

do you have the remove hidden data feature installed and turned on?
Otherwise, I would suspect a corrupt file - close Word, find and rename or delete it (Word will rebuild it when you open it again).

Since my dad got this computer for me years ago, his name has always been registered or whatever you call it that makes his name appear as the author of html and java files... and also be the name on the "C:\Documents and Settings\His Name Here\Desktop...."

... when I write a java class in eclipse, or html, it automatically says his name as the author at the top, and I have to change it. Any way I can change it more permanently? I dont think I can change the user folder under his name, because everything is installed there... but thats not really important, its this other annoying thing.

When I setup XP pro for our users, I only put the username on the first box on the initial setup. Unfortunately, this information was used by the machine for the "Registered To:" part of the system properties. When I click in the dialog box I notice there is a space for a company name also.

Does anyone know where I can edit this so I can put the correct information? So far we only have three machines on XP, but I would not want o wait for it to grow before I start correcting this.


Here is the photo:

To change the information you will need to edit the windows registry.

My new laptop came preinstalled with Windows XP. When it booted up, it asked me who would be using this computer, saying something about how it would create new profiles for them. I whimsically decided to enter "THE KING" (to be the admin) and "peasant" (for other users).

Apparently that was a bad idea because now it says the computer is registered to THE KING (for example, when you click My Computer, then properties). Is there any way to change it?

Hi all.

I have just bought my wife a new laptop and she wants to give her old, serviceable laptop to our son.

Rather than show her name on logon or add another user, l want to change the registered owner in system settings, add my son as an administrator user and delete my wife as a user.

However after adding my son as a user l cannot delete my wife's user profile, does not delete it.
Any ideas please? Windows XP Home service pack 2

Ok, I've read the threads on how to change who my puter is registered to by going into regedit, blah blah blah. Now, how do I change the "Documents and Settings" folder name when I search for the old registered name?

That may be confusing, here's an example:

-My puter was registered to "X and Y"
-I changed registered user to "X" by going into regedit
-When I search for "X and Y" on my puter, the "Documents and Settings folder" comes up and still shows "X and Y" as its name and I cannot change the name of that folder. How do I change the name of this folder?


A:registered user change

Log on to the computer as an administrator.
Create a new folder.
Open the current "Documents and Settings" folder.
On the Tools menu, click Folder Options, and then click the View tab.
Under Advanced settings click Show hidden files and folders, and then click to clear the Hide file extensions for known file types and Hide protected operating system files check boxes.
Click OK.
Click and drag to copy all the folders to the new folder, except for the currently logged on users folder.
In Control Panel, double-click System, and then click the User Profiles tab.
Copy the current user's profile to the new folder.
Click OK, close Control Panel, and then log off and log on to the computer as an administrator again.
In Registry Editor, click Find on the Edit menu.
Type documents and settings, and then click Find.
Replace the value data or rename the value or registry key to the new path for each and every registry key and value that contains the original path.

NOTE: You must complete this change for every instance in the registry or your computer may not start. It is imperative that you update all registry keys and values with the new path.

Restart the computer.
You can now safely remove the original "Documents and Settings" folder.

To be fair, It would probably be easier just to create a new user, and move any files and folders that you want to the new folder, and then delete the old user!

How do I change the registered name on the PC so it no longer shows the previous owners name?


A:Change The Registered Name In System Properties?

Well, you can change your name in the registry but mucking around in there is not something I think anyone highly recommends unless you know what you are doing. So doing so is at your own risk and I would make a registry backup before making any changes in there.Go to Start menu and select Run and type regeditFind and go to below key:HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\Current Version Change your name in following subkey :Registered Owner

How or where can I change my registered email address for windows 10 preview?
From the start when Windows started with their preview I did an registration with a email address in used in that time.
Now, running windows 10 as an insider and geregisterd with a Microsoft account and using a new Microsoft mail address, in settings my PC is saying: Get Insider Preview builds.
Now I'm thinking if I make my geregisterd email the same as the one I'm using with the Microsoft account, this will be solved.

Welcome to the site.
I just want to make sure I know where we are and where we need to end up.
When Insider started last spring, you signed up as [email protected] But that wasn't the Microsoft Account you have now? Have you abandoned the account? Can you still sign in to the Insider Dashboard on the web with that email address?
So now when you log on to your computer you are using [email protected] for the Microsoft Account? Has it been that way long? And the PC is still receiving Insider Builds? Is [email protected] also registered for Insider?
Please correct any of that if it is mistaken information...
On the original account, is there any data or App ownerships that you can't part with?
Likewise on the new account, anything that must be kept?

A:Does Vista Microsoft Word Support Old Format Microsoft Word?

I'm assuming you're talking about the new office 2007? meaning word 2007?

If that is the case, then yes it does run older versions of word. In the sense that if you have a word document that was made and saved in Word 2003 it would work in 2007.

Just like when you make something in word 2007 you are able to save it as a Word 03-07 document so it works on both versions of Microsoft Word.

If so, I would suggest changing the Platform Target build option for your application to target x86 rather than Any CPU. Currently it appears that you are loading some assemblies out of the x64 GAC which would indicate that you are running x64 windows and Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0 provider is not 64-bit compatible.To resolve this issue open the project in Visual Studio then: 1.

The screen does show activity but it just never seems to get done. I cannot take the installation process past that point.

Any suggestions on how I can correct or cure this problem?

A:Unable to install either Microsoft Word or Word Perfect

Check here: for some help - probably the .dll is either corrupt or the path not recognized. Depending on whether or not this page helps, either fix it with that or lookup SHFolder.dll. on the net and download a new copy from somewhere like and install it.

Hard to explain but here goes:

When I have a sentence that I want to move to the middle of the page, I place the curser to the left of the word and try to push it right by hitting the space bar and nothing happens.

This is only when the word is all the way to the left of the page.

Is there some type of formatting that would allow this to be free so that I can push words forward??

Dear Forum,

I'm just starting to learn about Microsoft Word 10, which was bundled within an Office 10 package. I'm noticing that as I type a document, the Word Count dialog box at the bottom left remains frozen at 0. When I right-click on it, it opens, but the Word Count is checked within it. So, it's not turned off or anything. I need to limit what I'm writing to a certain number of words. I have to complete this thing within the next day or so. Unexpected need for a troubleshooting solution.

Why isn't my word count going up? And the Characters seem stuck at 67. Maybe I clicked something I shouldn't have. Otherwise, I need some guidance here. Thanks. Steve

Doing a fix for a friend, and this is a new one for me. Her primary concern was that all of a sudden, when she opens word, she can not type anything in a document. I tried it, and nothing happens. It opens like normal, and when you try to type, it is like the keyboard is locked out.

It is Win XP home, with 256 ram, and a P4 1.7 Proc. The version of word was installed with a software bundle that included Microsft Works.

I uninstalled Word, and reinstalled Office 2000 PRO, and the same thing is happening...

I have decided to try to fix a problem on my computer with the Microsoft Fix It thing that Microsoft lets us use. Unfortunately, it not only did nothing for my problem (Which I no longer care about), but it did something to Microsoft Works Word Processor, the one that comes with windows. I already tried a system restore, but I've had it for too long so my restore didn't go back far enough.

The error itself says, "Works cannot access one or more files it needs to run the Word Processor. The files may have been renamed, deleted, or moved. Try reinstalling Works, and then starting the program again." Unfortunately I don't know if it has actually been moved or deleted and I don't know how to reinstall it. Any help would be great.

Word itself does not send (or receive) e-mail messages. You may configure Word to be your e-mail editor, but it still requires an e-mail program (such as MS Outlook) to send messages.

You can send e-mails from within Word by using File, Send To, Mail Recipient (or Mail Recipient as Attachment), but this still uses Outlook to do the sending and receiving.

There may be a way, but it's a little complicated and may not work.

Now it is also asking if I want to save if I open a document to just look at it and don't make any changes. I like the Save request as a reminder when I make changes, but it's annoying to have to constantly deal with the request and click "no" when I just look at a document and don't make changes.
In the past it wouldn't ask to save unless I did something to the document. Any ideas? Tx. Joel

When you create a document & modify it to your requirements, you should save it as a Template in a folder located in your Documents file, say in a folder called Word Templates. When you want to us that one again you can select it from there & modify it as necessary.
Doing that should allow you to have the Normal.dotm document format to use in Word if you need to create a completely new document. When doing this it will use the default font, which will need to be change to your preferred font. Once you have created this document & if you wish to save it for future use, save it as a Template & name it with an appropriate name.

Hi, I am using XP Home and Word 2002. I know that when one is working in Word, and you want to open a file or save one, etc., you just click on the tool bar along the top, and a little (operative word - little) box would open in the middle of your screen. I do not know what has changed, but now when I click on the open file button on the tool bar up top, this giant screen opens that takes up the entire screen space. I think it calls itself "Open." This is a major nuisance to me. I like the little box, so that I can still see the Word document that I am working on. Does anybody out there know what I am talking about? Is there some way to tell Word or Windows to stick to the small box, instead of the giant entire screen box? Thanks for your assistance.

Someone must have resized it. Just resize it back down to something manageable. Put your mouse over one of the corners of the Open box until it turns into a double arrow, and start dragging.
