Pc restart whenever I'm on microsoft word

Q: Pc restart whenever I'm on microsoft word

Hi all,
I'm new here and I guess the title says it all. Every time when I do some work on ms word my pc will restart itself at random times. Just for your info, there's nothing running on the pc while I'm on ms word. By the way I'm using windows xp, intel pentium D dual core processor, 512mb ram and power supply tecom 450w. Kinda weird I know but it happens almost every time I'm on ms word and only word else it never restart like tat. Anyone can help? Thanks

Preferred Solution: Pc restart whenever I'm on microsoft word

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.)

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.

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??

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.

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.

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.

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

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.

can't stop windows installer

when desktop comes up (Windows XP home) no matter where I click windows installer tries to install Microsoft Money 2002. Can't stop this.

Have done troubleshooting and removing Microsoft Money 2002...other problems occurred when i removed the program.

Tried system restore -- two different dates.

Also color resolution has become flawed.
Can't get system restore to fix.

A:Windows tries to install Microsoft Money 2002 every restart

Welcome to TechSpot

Select Start/Programs and see if anything is in your Startup folder. If you find an install or setup in there, "drag" it out to the Desktop. Reboot and see if the Money-stuff is gone. If not, "drag" it back in your Startup folder.

Try this.
Select Start/Run and type in msconfig and press enter.
Check the startup-options. Somewhere in there you are likely to find the install or setup for that prog. Disable it by marking the appropriate line, save it and exit.
On your next (re)boot it should be gone.

Report your findings back here and I'm sure we can help you further.

Hi everyone first time poster here.

I am having a problem with Word documents in Microsoft Word XP - over the last few weeks with all my Word documents when i go to close one of them it asks me if i want to save the changes to the document and that is fine however it know keeps asking if i want to save the change to the letter.wiz.

I havent made any changes to the settings in Word but it is constantly asking about the change to letter.wiz. The OS on the pc is XP SP3.

Also i have copied some of the files to a pc that has O/S XP SP3 but Word 2003 and this message about letter.wiz does not appear.

Is there a setting that is causing the message to appear on the original pc?

If anyone can offer any tips or advice that would be greatly appreciated

do you mean that your doc's get opened in wordpad? or they get saved with a wordpad icon?

right-click on a document >> open with... >> if you see word on the list, select it, and make sure the 'always use...' box is ticked

if you can't see word on the list, youy have to use the 'browse...' button, and navigate to the word program (winword.exe), probably somewhere in your c:\program files\microsoft office folder (or similar, i don't have it installed here right now).

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,

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.

I would like to purchase Microsft Word. I see that the 2002 version is included in MS Works Suite ($94.99); however, the problem is that I already have separate versions of Streets and Trips, Picture It, and Encarta, so I'd be duplicating them with by purchasing Works Suite.

Apparently, the stand-alone Word 2003 sells for around $200, so I'm wondering if I'm better off buying Works Suite with the 2002 version. Or perhaps there's a better way. (I currently have MS Word Pad on my PC.)

Isnt there some sort of way that I can convert the coding, to something I can read??

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.

As to being unable to use your bank that is probably reasonably wise.
But you can use a site like Amazon to buy the ram as it is secure.
you can also check the ram is compatible using the crucial Advisor tool here 512MB DDR PC2700 Unbuffered NON-ECC 2.5V 64Meg x 64 | Crucial USA Scroll down and it is in the left hand column you choose Compaq from the list, then all models, then Compaq Presario SR1111NX from the list use the scroll feature and it will be near the bottom of the list. The Crucial site can also be trusted, but Amazon will most likely will be cheaper.
Avast is fine as an antivirus but change the firewall, Comodo or Zonealarm are 2 you can look into, and keep your security programs updated.
Free Firewall Software: Personal Firewall by ZoneAlarm
Firewall | Download Free Firewall Software From Comodo
And one last thing is this Which is free and does most of the things MS office does.

My operating system is Windows 7 and I'm currently using an old version of Microsoft Office which I'm happy with.

However, today I've opened an attachment from my email which is in Microsoft Office Home & Student 2007 and it has now converted all my existing Word files to this format!!!!

How can it do this and can I somehow revert back to my old version???

A:Microsoft Word

Pick a file you want to convert click it once so it's highlighted in blue right click it and pick open with. Pick the older version and check off the box at the bottom that says open all associated files with.

I was typing a letter today in Microsoft Word 2000. All the letters in the left-hand margin were capitalized, even in the middle of a sentence. I typed them as lower case letters and as soon as I hit the space bar, they changed to caps. I had to go back and change all of them to lower case. My son and I checked all the settings, but could not find the problem. Any help would be appreciated. I'm sure we missed something.

Alright. I have just noticed this because i was (and need to be working on) a english project which, obviously, involves using a word processor. In my case Microsoft word.

But its being weird.

When typing it is slow, the letters not appearing on the page until i stop for a second. Then they appear, with volumes of mistakes.

Also when trying to use the tool bar menus (such as the spacing selector) the menu gives the pre-drop image (faint image JUST before it actually shows its self) and stops, no menu.

Any one know whats up with this? I would like to fix the problem without having to reinstall.

I dont remember having this problem in recent memory.

Hi there, yesterday I was trying to insert a file into a word document, which has several pages. The file is a one page poster I made up, which has a page border. When I insert it, it comes up with no page border. What is going on?

So anyway, I inserted it & put the border round it again & applied it to this section. When I go to insert break & Page break, the next page has a border as well & I can't get rid of it. HELP!!

A:Microsoft Word

Go to the options that you inserted the border with, I think in there somewhere there is an option to "insert border to this page only."

Every time I close M/S Word I receive message: M/S Office live Add on Sign in has encountered a problem and needs to close. How do I correct this problem?

A:Microsoft Word

There are a couple of options to fix this.

1) You can uninstall the Office Live Add-In which, I understand, is no longer supported or functioning as originally intended.

2) You can locate the following file:

C:\Program Files\Microsoft\Office Live\OLConnector.dll

Right-click on the OLConnector.dll file and select "rename" and rename it to:

C:\Program Files\Microsoft\Office Live\OLConnector.dll.old

And a note of advice, in the future when posting error messages it's important they they be quoted exactly as they appear.

Any ideas why a laptop running Windows 7 would shut down without warning when starting up Word Starter Edition? AS I started word it came up with a message saying it needed to download components to make it work and the application may appear to hang for a while. After a few minutes the laptop just shuts down. The application was not activated.

A:Microsoft Word

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.

I don't know if I am in the right forum, but would like to know if you can download Microsoft Word for free anywhere?

Also I have been having problems with Internet Explorer. Very slow almost as slow as dial up so I went to Firefox and what a difference. I have Road Runner and it surely made a difference. Does anyone know why?

I am using word 98 at my University on a floppy disk and when I use it on XP it says it's not compatable and does not recognize it. I understand that word 98 is a 16bit program and word perfest on xp is a 32 bit program and is not compatable. I have tried downoading word 98 to xp but will not work. Is there any way around this problem? Any help is appreciated, thanks, Neesh

A:Microsoft word 98

I use Word 97 on XP without any problems.

Is your Word 98 a legal copy?

If so I recommend you install it under XP.

Welcome to the forum. What are you the champion of? You probably did not register your copy of Office so it is running with limited features.

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.
