Microsoft Word 07 freezes

Q: Microsoft Word 07 freezes

when i try to change the font in excel or word it freezes and then crashes. but it doesn't do this with power point or one note. i have reinstalled it, deleted the thing but nothing seems to work. and yes i have done the Microsoft diagnostics but it says that it should be working fine. so it would be nice if some 1 knew why this happens and how to fix it

Preferred Solution: Microsoft Word 07 freezes

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.)

If you've been locking up, probably time to clean up your hard drive, and you might as well do that first. Carefully follow the steps under Periodic Hard Drive Maintenance in Article III of

If that doesn't work, and with Word closed, find on your hard drive. Rename it, or them if there's more than one, to

I am currently running windows xp home edition on my pc. My problem is trying to save a word document. I can open Microsoft Word, I can create a new document, but when I try to save it, my computer freezes. I have to control-alt-delete to get out of word. I've checked for viruses etc, but not finding anything there. This just started happening about two days ago. Never had this problem before.

Any suggestions? I haven't downloaded any new programs lately...

Thanks for your help.

A:Microsoft Word Freezes upon startup

open the shortcut properties and type /a after the " in the shortcut link..

for example mine would say:

"C:/program files/microsoft office/winword.exe" /a

that might work, its just a bypass feature, only thing is you have an instant popup that comes up asking for username, just hit escape 2 times and ur set!

One of our secretaries is having word XP freeze up on her any time she changes a font.

This is on an HP Laptop (I'll edit this tomorrow after she comes in and I can get exact specs) running Windows XP.

I have seen many other posts about Word freezing, but none seem related to fonts.

I will run updates first thing once she is back in this office, and I'll make sure that it isn't just a fluke thing. I'll also run the repair option from the control panel if it's still necessary.

I'm mostly just trying to see if anyone has heard of these issues so that I can get it up and running as fast as possible tomorrow when I actually get a chance to see the problem in action.

Thanks in advance for the replies!

A:Microsoft Word XP freezes after changing fonts

Never heard of it doing that. But my first step would be running Detect and Repair from the Help Menu (didn't know there was such a thing in control panel.)

Hi- I've had my HP ENVY Desktop 700-414 for less than a year, and I've had to take it to Geek Squad three times for the same issue, and it never gets resolved.  The Geek Squad techs said they've had a few HP customers come in with the same complaint:-Windows 10 start menu freezes after a few cycles of sleep/wake/sleep/wake, etc.-Microsoft Office Word and PPT freeze when Windows does this The techs said they saw on the forum that HP has identified a BIOS issue that creates this error, and they are trying to find a fix for it.  My desktop is with them now, and we were going to reset it to factory, then reload everything, but they said the same issue would pop up again.   Can you help?  I really need this desktop to work appropriately for my PhD coursework.  Thanks! -Lorenzo

A:Windows 10 Freezes/Microsoft Word & PPT Freeze Too

Hi, Welcome to the HP Support forum. Since the computer is new, did you contact HP Support for assistance and do you have some tickets with them ?I am not sure if GeekSquad is the best place to visit for computers with active warranty period, I am not sure if they are authorized HP service center. Since the computer is not with you now and since you left it to 3rd party , I can only provide you some general tips: - test the computer for hardware issues - test HDD and RAMTest using the UEFI hardware diagnostics method described here >> The idea is to exclude any hardware related problems - reimage the machine and reset it to factory default condition. Here is how>> - apply all Windows updates are installed- ensure all drivers are updatedHere is how >> - use HP Support Assistant to also check for and apply any updates >> - Do not use or consider replacing 3rd party antivirus programs from big and popular vendors. Use the built-in Windows Firewall, Windows Defender and other security features. The idea is to rule out any issues they may cause to your system.  If the computer is under active warranty, you should inform HP support about any issues you may have with the PC and you should not use unauthorized people to mess with it. Alternatively, the warranty may be void.  Hope this helps.

Also you have lots of start up, which slow down your laptop, especially if your ram is not high.

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.

After recent full system recovery caused by one or more virus, I am unable to re-install Microsoft Word or Word Perfect on my Compaq Presario, which has Windows XP. Microsoft Word will sometimes start the process but then just stops, giving no indication of what steps to take next or what the problem is. Word Perfect seems to start the process each time but then gets hung up with updating what it describes as the SHFolder.dll. Have waited as long as 20 minutes for this update. 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?

Is there a way to count the number of occurrences of a word in MS Word?

If not, is there a downloadable text editor or something that can do such a thing?


A:Counting occurrence of a word in Microsoft Word?

Replace the Word with something like QQQ .. or the the original word .. And it will tell you how many.
Then you can replace it back to what it was ... or just don't save the edited file.
be sure to include the spaces before n after the search word.

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.

I found a few things on google that I tried to no avail. There was a .DLL patch I did, and I also removed so registry keys.

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...

Any help would be awesome.

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.

If it came with Vista, it may be in Control Panel>Programmes and Features with the Windows Components list opened. You might be able to repair it that way. Failing that, if you had a Vista DVD or made a recovery set of your own, see if that can help.

Anybody plz?


A:Microsoft Word 2000 aka MS Word 2000 - Sending Email - Need Help Configuring

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.

Many things can cause the OS to shut down. Bad hardware (disk drive, video card, power supply) is a common culprit. Also when downloading or installing software a bit gets dropped and the software malfunctions when OS encouters the code sending the pc to la-la land. Uninstall, Redownload reinstall if you know the offending software.

A:Microsoft Word

Did you copy/paste the document into Word? If so, that could happen because of you actually copying some tags or such.If you want the greyed out text to print, do this......Copy the document using Edit/Select All, Then paste it into NotePad. After it's there, select it all, then copy it back into WordPad/MS Word.Note: Doing this will remove ALL formatting of the document. (small price to pay)Doing Templates:If you have WordPerfect, it'll do it. I'm sure Word does it too,, but I don't recall, but you should be able to do it with MS Word. You will need to setup the fields to which you want your own data to be in, and leave the rest of the document as it is. I'm sure MS Word does it, and you'll be able to do it in just a few minutes or so.You bring back memories of that...... creating the document,, then inserting names, addresses or whatever, in the specified fields,... thousands of documents at a time.

A:Microsoft Word

Does the person allowed to edit the document get a dialog box in Word asking them if they want to open a read-only copy? If so, then it means that someone else has a copy open. Permissions on Windows unfortunately don't work with Word, meaning that even if someone can't actually save an edited document, just opening it will lock the document, not allowing anyone else it edit it either. This is just a limitation of Word. A quick option may be not to allow anyone else to open it if that is possible - either that or save a local copy, edit it and copy it back to the server.

Hope this helps

I am working in Microsoft Word and have the following problem:

I have an 18 page document of genealogy. I want to put a border on four sides of each page and page numbers.

I clicked on Format and selected a border. The border appeared on the four sides of all 18 pages as well as the page numbers.

However,when I clicked on Print Preview the page number was there but the bottom border was missing. When I print the document the page number is there but the bottom border does not print.

I have changed margins, changed point size of the border etc, but nothing has worked.

I would appreciate any remedy if there is one.

I'm working with a Tablet PC (using Windows XP Professional) and when I try to select Open or Save and then select the area to search file locations, it takes an extremely long time for the list of network drives to display.

This doesn't happen with viewing file locations either through My Computer or Windows Explorer. It does this wether the Tablet is docked or free.

I ran the Word 2002 post-Service Pack 3 hotfix package, but this did not fix the problem.

Anyone have any other suggestions? HELP!!!!!

Where do I search for the AutoRecovery document backups I see occurring every few minutes when the "floppy" appears briefly at the bottom of the page and then disappears.

I know this function is available but I would not know where to look to regain the temporary backup if I did need to do so.

It handles it automatically. If you have a lock-up or power failure, Word will open after you reboot with the saved file open.

It stores them in Windows>Temp with a .wbk extension, but I don’t think it even saves it as a temp file without an uncontrolled shutdown of Word without the opportunity to save the active document.

Hi There...

Try "Right-Clicking" on the toolbar and see what options you have. You may be able to solve this by shutting down the toolbar in question.

Also, go to: HOUSECALL and scan for virus activity.
