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 have a user working on Word 2000 in Windows 98SE.

Her Word seems to have arabic options installed. These screw up her bullets and other symbols, as well as her dictionary and auto-correction. I don't know how the arabic stuff got there and she doesn't need them.

I haven't found any way to uninstall this option. I've looked in the menus and I've tried unistalling and reinstalling Word (but not Office), but it didn't work.

Does anyone have an idea for how I can get rid of this without reinstalling Office completely?

Hi all, just 2 weeks back i've come across a new problem in Word2000. I've a friend try to change the font sizes in Word 2000 when using Arabic Fonts. But she is unable to do that. But if she were to try changing the Arabic Fonts size in Excel 2000, she will be able to do that. I've tried logging on as another user id (Windows 2000) but the problem persist.

Have also tried to repair office, un-install/re-install office, re-create a new profile for her, but nothing seems to work.

Any ideas?

I am a novice, but with some experience in Word, plus had help from a professional. So we downloaded and intalled the keyboard and complex script and right-to-left languages as described here We restarted when promted. Opened a Word doc, set the language and font to Arabic transparent, but it keeps switching back to Arial or New Times Roman as soon as I type. I can open Arabic documents without any problem and I can cut & paste and it all appears as it should on the page, justified to the right, etc.

Does anyone noe weather vista Microsoft word support the old formated ones? Or is there any plug-in needed to support?

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?

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.

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.

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.

You can still change the keyboard to write in Arabic. Whether or not you can read Arabic, I dunno But the OS isn't available in Arabic per this statement

*Note: If you used the Hindi or Arabic language versions of the Beta, thank you for helping us test those languages. Because the RC is not available in Hindi or Arabic, we encourage you to either install Windows 7 RC in another language or reinstall a prior version of Windows before the Beta expires on August 1, 2009.

I have a form where two languages be entered at the same time, I have got the words and text entered in english and arabic , but when it comes to numbers and dates , it just stays as english . I tried through the control panel and change the neccassary but still the numbers stays english. If I completely in the control panel changed to arabic, all the english date and numbers are in arabic.

Is there a way that when pressing the ALT SHIFT the numerical also change to arabic ( text is fine in arabic ).

A:Arabic numbers

First, what program are you using?

it happens when you dont have an arabic font installed and selected as your text style. For example, if your default font is Times and you switch to arabic keyboard, it will let you type arabic but won't type the arabic numerals.

if you are typing in word, try to change over to an arabic font (not Adobe Arabic).

P.S. you will be able to type english numbers when you switch the keyboard to english and your font is an arabic font.

I have a question about a problem with Microsoft word 2010. I know the fix is probably easy but I can not figure it out. Recently, when using word I must have clicked something without even knowing. Usually there is a little space at the top of the page and when I click on the page the curser is below the space, like with a header, even though I haven't added a header. It's just the way it is supposed to be. My problem is now when I go to new word page my cursor goes directly to the top of the page and the only way I can get the space back is to manually add a header every time. How do I get word to go back to its default settings?Thanks

You probably inadvertently changed the View so under the View tab select Print Layout and it should go back to the way you want it.

I would arrange 'text boxes' in word that would put information in the places you want it to print. You'll have to 'format text box' to prevent it from printing the square lines.

When I go into Microsoft Office Word it states, "Word has not been allowed by the current user. Please run setup to install the program." Has it lost all my documents and why can't I type into word to make a new document. No updates have been installed recently, although the problem has occurred in the last few days.

Also it says in the upper left hand corner "Document recovery, word has saved the following files. Save the ones you want to keep." Available files 13328 (original). Not sure what that is.

Please help.

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!!!!!

I'm located in South Korea. I recently got a new computer at work but Microsoft Word doesn't work properly. Some of the features don't work, for example, 'line spacing' and 'background and shading'. My computer was using Word 2003. The tech person in my workplace installed Word 2007, and then Word 2010, but both versions of Word had the same problem.
He installed the Korean version of Microsoft Word and it worked perfectly, but the Korean version is of no use to me.
Do you have any idea what the problem might be and how we/he could fix it?
Thank you so much!

I am writing a program that opens up many "read only recommended" Word documents, makes changes to them and then saves them.
The part I am having difficulty with is "skipping" the read only recommended dialog box (and opening the document as read - write).

My code for this part of the macro is

Dim PathToUse As String
Dim i As Long
Dim myDoc As Word.Document

PathToUse = "P:\My_Documents\"

On Error Resume Next
Dim Subfolders As Boolean

With Application.FileSearch
.LookIn = PathToUse
.SearchSubFolders = True
.FileName = "*.doc"
.MatchTextExactly = True
.FileType = msoFileTypeAllFiles

If .Execute() Then
For i = 1 To .FoundFiles.Count
Application.DisplayAlerts = False
Set myDoc = Documents.Open(.FoundFiles(i), WritePasswordDocument:="xxxxxxxxxx")
Am I correct in thinking that the IgnoreReadOnlyRecommended cannot be used as an arguement in the last line?
And if so is there another method I can use?

Many thanks in advance,

Some of these were files that they needed for work, so they're very important. I've searched online, and the only converters I can find are wps to doc, the exact opposite of what I actually need.

I have a HP Deskjet 722 printer, when I try to print from Microsoft Word, it takes much longer than usual.
Also when the print options pop up I can click properties it indents, when I click options it indents but when I click the ok it does not indents. It still prints but somthing is not right.
It still prints from word but somthing has changed to make it so slow.
I am operating Windows 98.
When I used Microsoft Word before it would pop right away, now it takes about thirty to forty seconds to finally come on the screen??
I believe that I might have a setting that is not right, and Microsoft Word is not going right to the printer?? I have checked all the printer options, they seem to be ok.
Hope this makes some sense.

A:Microsoft Word

What do you mean, "saved in the recommended format". If you don't save it as a Word document, and depending on what you save it as, it can lose some of it's formatting. If you are saving it in Word, and it is losing formating, I would be suspicious of a virus or a corrupted You can try renaming your to Normal.old and then trying it. If it works, then you know the was corrupted. If not, then delete the new one and rename the old one back since it has your personalized settings such as Macros and Auto Text.

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

Hi Robert

Have you considered using the PDF format. You can download free convertors, such as - this. Most people will have Adobe Acrobat reader on thier computer, if they don't a free download is available from Adobe - here
Using this format will also stop anyone editing your documents easily.

Alternatively just burn a copy of the Open Office .exe file to each CD and add a ReadMe First Note pad document explaining what to do if they don't have MS Word.
