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 http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I still have Office 2013 which I haven't even bothered to install yet let alone use, 2010 I use on occasion so I won't be taking an interest in 2016 for a while yet.

Hi

I'm in the process of configuring a new Win 10 laptop from Dell and buying the MS Office package from them seems a bit steep here in UK.

I have found a few places online that sell the MS Office Home & Business package but have reservations due to possible fakes/imitations leading to security risks etc.

Could someone offer any pointers where and what to look out for and avoid?

Thanks in advance

Chrome Web Store - Office Online

While Google is ignoring Microsoft's Windows 10 operating system largely when it comes to company applications, Microsoft's change in business strategy has seen the release of several non-Windows applications in the recent past.

The latest addition to the growing number of applications is Office Online, a browser extension for Google Chrome to improve how Office files are viewed, edited and created in the browser.

Great extension, it's better than the default Web App links.

Something similar for Firefox, but it's basically an alternate to bookmarks (Office-Online - not by Microsoft).

If I'm not in the right forum please let me know. I have an HP Stream notebook 8.1. I got it not knowing that there wasn't much room on the harddrive. I have Onedrive cloud service through Microsoft office 2016/365. I don't use any of the Microsoft office progams, except for word and onedrive. I was wondering if there was a way to individually uninstall the programs I don't use or move all of it to onedrive to get it off my hard drive, as that seems to be whats taking up most of my space.
 
Thanks!

Hi cstull1217 Microsoft Office allows you to uninstall components separately. To do so, simply go in the Control Panel and uninstall Microsoft Office. It'll ask you if you want to uninstall Office, repair the installation, modify it, etc. Select the option to modify Office, and opt-out the ones you don't need before proceeding.https://support.office.com/en-us/article/Install-or-remove-individual-Office-2010-programs-and-components-aeb80df5-326c-4afc-8064-bd195f560753

220 or a yearly subscription as I understand it - correct?

Libre Office - nowt, nothing, bugger-all, for free.

Libre works well and you can save documents and spreadsheets with a MS file extension so MS Office users can open your Libre Office file.

Unless MS have put the kibosh on that with latest release, I don't know, but probably unlikely.

I will concede MS Office has two very good programs though - Outlook and Publisher, almost worth the 220 smackers for those two.

Microsoft believes we are living in a mobile first, cloud first world, which sounds good, I guess, but what does that really mean in a practical business setting? The answer may surprise you, especially if you rely on Microsoft Access and you fail to choose your Office 365 subscription very carefully.

I'm planning to reinstall windows 10 and I know that it will remove Windows updates etc. Will it also remove Microsoft Office 2016 updates? Thanks

A:Will Reinstalling Windows 10 affect Microsoft Office 2016 updates?

That depends on how you plan on reinstalling Windows 10.

Do it this way and you lose everything, including all your data files and Office 2016 completely, including updates. You will have to reinstall everything:
Windows 10 - Clean Install - Windows 10 Forums

Do it this way, and you only refresh Windows 10 itself and nothing else should be affected, including Office 2016:

You have to have the right version. I can't remember which one(s) will do it, I don't think retail or oem versions will. I think they have to be volume license version. To check if your version will, put the disk in the drive, and go to a command prompt. Change to your cd drive, and type setup /a. This will start the administrative setup if it's available. You can type in the product key once, and it will enter it for each pc you install it on from that location. Works quite well.

And just for anyone who might run into such issue, here is the solution:

I read at Microsoft office site here that they offer language packs at some charge which is none sense anyways especially if someone bought the office cd/dvd.

I looked up the English pack and found it at here. The steps on how to install the pack are simple, and explained in order on the first link provided above.

My 13-A013CL laptop (8 gb memory, 500 GB SSD) refuses to upgrade to Windows Anniversary Edition.  All methods in posting have no effect:
 
Tried Media Creation with Windows Defender turned off, network off and also tried on-no luck.  Am part of the WIndows Insider Preview and will not upgrade past OS Build 10586.494.  No upgrades since 7/13. All other HP desktops upgraded fine including Surface 3.  Guess I'll just hang in there until a viable fix is released.

For example, is Word from O365 the same as Word in Office 2016? Or does one have more options/features than the other?

I currently have Windows 10 with the November update, including tab previews in Microsoft Edge. Frequently (about 50% of the time), if I open more than two tabs in the background (right click -> open in new tab, or click mouse middle button) it will show a preview of the first tab, even though the mouse pointer was nowhere near that tab. The only way to get rid of the tab preview is to click on it.
I have tried this with multiple mouse devices and with the touch screen. I've also tried the method to "reset" Edge (deleting the app/data then reinstalling through Powershell). The issue still persists frequently unless using the touch screen in tablet mode. Has anyone else experienced this issue? Is there a way to disable tab previews?

Yup, happens to me, too, months later. On 1511 / 10586. Incredibly annoying.
I upvoted all the posts in the Feedback Hub about this. :( May never get fixed, at this pace.

I am in IT support, and I have a user that is having an issue with Skype for Business. When she goes into Outlook and tries to set up a Skype meeting it says Create Skype Meeting failed. Please make sure that Skype for Business is running and signed-in and try again. Does anyone know why this is happening? She is logged into her Skype profile so i know that is not the issue. Any help on this would be great.

Hi Folks,

The title of the thread says it all really.

I have legitimate copy of Microsoft Office 2007 Ultimate on my PC. I have just bought a copy of Office 2016 Professional Plus through the HUP.

I haven't installed Office 2016 yet - I use Office 2010 at work and find using Custom Animations in PowerPoint tricky compared to Office 2007.

I'd like to install Office 2016 alongside Office 2007 until I have tried Office 2016 to see if the Custom Animations in PP are easier than the 2010 version before switching completely.

My question is, can I install Office 2016 alongside Office 2007 without conflicts - switching between versions without a problem or will installing Office 2016 screw Office 2007 or worse FUBAR both Office installations or my PC.

Any help gratefully received.

Cheers,

Zaph

I am having trouble confirming which version of SR1/1a I have on a users PC. I have read article q261934 (inappropriately titled "How to Determine Which version of the SR-1 update is Installed"). It allows me to determine that the LAN groups SR-1a version is really SR-1, and that the one I downloaded is SR-1a. My problem is that when I try to install SR-1a, a message pops up stating that I have already installed SR-1!! What actual files on the system can I check to determine that SR level. The issue that 1a is supposed to fix (importing arrays with Larger Than 5,461 Elements) is not working. Do I need to completely remove office2K and reinstall with the known SR-1a, or is there an easier fix?

TIA
 

A:Office 2000: Difference Between Service Releases

Fraid the news is no good. Frustrating, but here's what the article at the link below (there are only about 6 billion different service release articles to dig through, also frustrating) has to say about it:

NOTE: In any of the following situations, if you already applied the SR-1 update, you cannot apply the SR-1a update, nor do you need to apply it. If you try to run the SR-1a update when the SR-1 update has already been applied, the SR-1a update advises you that the update has already been installed and will not continue.

http://support.microsoft.com/support/kb/articles/q261/9/33.asp

Sounds like, since you can't back out the SR-1 installation, you'll have to reinstall and add SR-1a.

So does this bios update even apply to my computer? Second Question: The specs says to downlowd the file and follow instructions. However the file just creates a directory and then unzips into it. but does not try to install. Is this right or is it because i have Win 10 pro? As this is for the bios i don't want to try to install without proper instructions which were not suppplied.

Good Evening Everyone,

I have a few questions concerning the Installation of 2010 Office. I know that I have to uninstall Office 2007. I have no clue on how to save or where to save my documents from Office 2007. The documents consist of Word, Excel, Powerpoint and a few various folders. Should I from the Start Menue click on Documents select all and copy. Where should I place this copy? Can It be left on my hard drive? After I install Office 2010 can I then copy the "Document File" and place in Documents. Will all the files end up in the proper place for their programs, Word files go to Word, Excel goes to Excel so on and so forth. Thank you so much for all your help and cooperation. It is greatly appreciated. I hope I described my situation correctly. I look forward to hearing from you.

A:2010 Office Professional Plus to Replace 2007 Office Small Business

But you don't have to uninstall Office 2007 to upgrade to 2010. That's the general rule as you can generally upgrade from lower SKUs to higher SKUs (Small Business to Pro Plus). As far as saving your documents, you can really save them wherever you like on your hard drive or on any CD or flash drive if you wish to do so. As far as file types, after 2010 is installed, they should all register properly for their programs so that Word documents open in Word, Excel Documents in Excel, etc.

Though if you have all of you documents already saved within "Documents" or "My Documents" or some other folder you've set aside and you want to uninstall 2007 before upgrading to 2010, the documents themselves will be retained when you uninstall, you just won't be able to really do much with them until you install 2010.

Hi there

It looks like that a Student and Teacher edition of Office 2016 will be available at around 90 GBP - 105 EUR while an Office 365 subscription will be around 60 GBP - 73 EUR for 1 year. Since the Student edition will work on 3 machines it seems to me the subscription model is bad value compared with Office 2016.

Now there might be a caveat -- not sure if OUTLOOK 2016 is included with Student and Teacher --we'll have to wait and see.

There *Might* also be an Upgrade price from Office 2010 / 2013 too.

A:Microsoft Releases New Antigen Security Suite

Eugene Kaspersky has published an article entitled Changes in the antivirus industry, much of which focuses on the impact of MS's entry into the security arena and market.Over the past few years, the antivirus industry has undergone some major changes. The market leader has changed (McAfee has lost ground to Symantec), some independent antivirus companies have either disappeared from the market or have been taken over (the Romanian company RAV and the Australian company VET), and new players (BitDefender, ClamAV) have appeared.The major factors "currently influencing the antivirus industry":Factor 1: Continuing criminalization of the InternetFactor 2: Increased variety of malware and attack methodsFactor 3: MicrosoftMicrosoft is going to be seriously focussing on the security solutions market; this will include developing antivirus solutions. The antivirus industry is in a state of shock - everyone remembers Netscape and other independent projects, which either significantly lost market share or disappeared altogether after Microsoft produced similar products. Microsoft is planning to bring the following to the market: *antivirus for home PCs *antivirus for workstations (planned for the future) *solutions for MS Exchange (using the multi-engine Antigen from Sybari)Of course, the appearance of this commercial giant will be a heavy blow to other manufacturers. But just how heavy will the blow be?You'll have to read the entire article for Kaspersky's analyses of what the answer to that question might be: http://www.kaspersky.com/cyberthreats?chapter=188361044One thing that is unclear to me is if the multi-engine Anitgen will be available to home users, which it doesn't appear to be at present.Related links:http://www.microsoft.com/antigen/default.mspxhttp://www.sybari.com/

Microsoft Releases Biggest-ever Security Update





Quote:
There are 16 groups of patches (called updates) in total. Microsoft says that two of them -- the Internet Explorer fix numbered MS10-071 and a Windows patch numbered MS10-076 -- should get top priority. Microsoft thinks attack code is likely to be developed that will target bugs fixed by both of those updates.







Quote:
Just because the other fixes are not rated critical does not mean they can be ignored. Symantec says 35 of the 49 bugs fixed on Tuesday could give hackers a way to run unauthorized software on a victim's machines, and Microsoft says attacks are likely to be developed that exploit some of the lower-rated issues as well.

On startup, and sometimes amidst usage, Skype for business starts itself and then hangs at the splash screen; thus I cannot disable it from starting automatically. How can I fully remove Skype for business and instead install the regular version of Skype?

Thanks in advance for some hints!

Hi Useless User and welcome to Tenforums.

You can disable Skype for Business from starting with Windows permanently, by opening Task Manager; under the Startup tab, select the app and click the Disable button.

Alternately, you can go to All Settings> System>Apps & features, highlight Skype Meetings App, and select Uninstall.

Hope that helps!

A:Microsoft releases critical security patch for Windows

"Gee Wally, I didn't think Windows 10 would ever need any security patches because everybody is always screaming how secure it is already. What's going on Wally?".

"You believed what Microsoft said Beaver. That was your first mistake".

Same ole whack-a-mole game. No reason to move off Windows 7 yet that I can see.

In fact, if you think about it, the more popular post "Windows 7" operating systems become the more likely they are to be the main targets of hackers. Which means less attacks on older operating systems which means, older operating systems will be more secure by default. Because nobody is concerned about them anymore. Ah, I can sleep soundly tonight.

Now...where were those people calling for the death of Adobe Flash again?
Do we call for the death of Windows 10 now? Or do you wanna wait a month until the next security breach is discovered?

You can put your tinfoil hats away now.Two weeks ahead of the global launch of Windows 10, Microsoft has finalized the terms of its license agreements for the new operating system. I've had several days to study the documents in detail, and I can report that there are no surprises, no gotchas, and no hidden subscription traps waiting to be sprung in two or three or four years.Sorry to disappoint you, conspiracy theorists.Microsoft has consistently said that its new "Windows as a service" model doesn't change the basic licensing terms for Windows. Based on these documents, that's still true.Microsoft releases new license terms for Windows 10: Biggest surprise? No gotchas

The 2964358 update is for systems that have the 2929437 update installed.
The 2964444 update is for systems without the 2929437 update installed.
As if you install it without 2929437 IE11 will crash

Microsoft today released a new cumulative update for Windows 10 PCs and phones, bringing the build number to 10586.494.

KB3172985 is a bit of a mystery at the moment, as Microsoft hasn't published a changelog for either version. Typically, the PC release notes would be published to the Windows 10 Update History page, which isn't currently showing anything new.

The Mobile version is always a bit of a jumble, the release notes sometimes showing up in Microsoft's Answers forum and occasionally, in the Feedback Hub. Perhaps most interesting is that the changelog for phones is almost never available at the time that the update is offered.

The last cumulative update that we saw was 10586.454 in the Release Preview ring. No Release Preview update has ever made it to the Production ring, so the last public update was 10586.420.

Just out today through Automatic Updates...

http://support.microsoft.com/kb/940510

This update enables Windows Vista to detect activation exploits that bypass product activation and that interfere with usual Windows operation. An exploit is a form of software that replaces or modifies authentic Windows components. When exploits are present on a system, it indicates that a software or hardware vendor may have tampered with genuine Windows to enable the sale of counterfeit software. Therefore, the security and the privacy of the computer are put at risk. After this update is installed, you will know if exploits are present on the system.Click to expand...

I wonder how many goofy pirates will install this without thinking?

Good to know about this Microsoft update. I find it strange that it wasn't installed automatically by Microsoft (Windows). I guess they know what they're doing. Sometimes i ask myself, do they really know??? Good news for XP users.....

Presence indicators display fine in IE11 on Win 7, but not in IE11 (or Edge) on Win 10, do however show in Outlook 2013 on Win 10. Applies to sites both in Intranet zone and trusted sites zone. Zones are managed through Group Policies. Compared
IE settings between Win 7 and Win 10 machines - no differences.
Applies both to onsite SharePoint 2007 site and SharePoint 365 site.
Both machines joined to Domain and in the same OU.

Hi - I am working on an MS XP which I bought second hand from a computer fix-it place. The computer came with Office Small Business. Since this computer has Access on it, I ---- in all my infinite questionable wisdom --- decided to teach myself this application. But, the Access wizards require Office 2000 SR-1 Professional. Can you tell me how to get Office Professional? I've been unemployed since February and not looking forward to paying for anything these days -- will it cost me? Do I need to remove Small Business before loading Professional? Should I just forget it and work with whatever I can with Small Business? Thank you for your infinite wisdom.
 

A:I have Office Small Business but need Office Professional

I assume that you are running the 2000 of OSB version on this machine.
Does your machine have the Office 2000 SR 1 installed?

Also check for ALL of the Office updates and install them.
