Cannot Delete Office 2010 Starter

Office 2010 Starter came with my new laptop and worked fine until a few weeks ago. I have tons of .docx documents that I can't access because it won't start up. I've been on lots of forums that say delete it, which I've tried to do and it won't delete. It comes up with an error: Click-2-Run Configuration Error. No on can seem to help me with this. MS doesn't support it anymore, so they are no help. First of all, I'd like to repair it, but it won't let me do that, either. Second, if I can't repair it, I'd remove it and purchase a hard copy of the program to install -- I've tried that, too, and get an installation error because of Office Start. Yikes! Can someone help?

    The problem is that Office Starter doesn't work and when I try to untinstall, I get an error. I've included a screenshot of the error. Microsoft does not seem to have a solution for this. Any help will be appreciated!

    As I see you have many programs installed, do you have any registry cleaner program? - If yes, then uninstall it. You can find all the insturctions here:http://triplescomputers.com/blog/casestu...

SOURCE: My son's Laptop won't start

The first thing to do is extract your data. Recovery means TOTAL RELOAD. The disks for recovery were to be generated when the unit first went into service (rescue, recovery disks). If you did not make those, the files should be on the D:\ drive. BUT Recover all data before you do anything.

SOURCE: Srartup Repair Not working?

Try:Turn the machine off, turn it back on and IMMEDIATELY press two keys: CTRL +F6. If you hear a distress series of beeps (around 5/sec) keep pressing for about 1 min. After that release F6 but keep pressing Ctrl for a while.At this point the MS Windows Boot Console should appear and offer you choices. Choose Boot in Safe Mode With Internet.
Now, that combination Ctrl+F6 is maker specific. It worked for my DELL
towers. Other manufacturers reportedly have other "secret" codes.
You may try Alt, Del, PgUp, PgDn instead of Ctrl. Also F6 is not cast in
concrete. You may try other function keys. Some machine may require only one key to be pressed.Every machine MUST have a code like this. It took me about 10 min to find.1. Remove all floppy disks, CDs, and DVDs from your computer, and then restart your computer.
Click the Start button, click the arrow next to the Lock button, and then click Restart.2. Do one of the following:• If your computer has a single operating system installed, press and hold the F8 key as your computer restarts. You need to press F8 before the Windows logo appears. If the Windows logo appears, you will need to try again by waiting until the Windows logon prompt appears, and then shutting down and restarting your computer.
• If your computer has more than one operating system, use the arrow keys to highlight the operating system you want to repair, and then press and hold F8.3. On the Advanced Boot Options screen, use the arrow keys to highlight Repair your computer, and then press ENTER. (If Repair your computer is not listed as an option, then your computer does not include System Recovery Option as a preinstalled recovery option.)4. Select a keyboard layout, and then click next.5. Select a user name and enter the password, and then click OK.6. On the System Recovery Options menu, click system restore and restore the computer to the date it was working fine.

SOURCE: mouse doesn't work. touchpad works fine. lenovo G470

LOL, go into the mouse and touch pad properties and make sure you don't have the mouse disabled or blocked.

Does the point work from the touchpad when you have the usb mouse plugged in? If not you have the mouse pointer disabled. There might be a button at the top of the touch pad in the middle that you press to toggle the mouse pointer. There could also be a set of keystrokes you hit to toggle the mouse. For example I just worked on one last week where you had to Press and Hold the Alt key then hit the F6 key. Function Key F6 had the icon of a finger inside a square which represented the touchpad.

Click Start/Control Panel and look at the mouse and touchpad properties. There may be settings where you can disable one if the other is present.

I need a product key for Microsoft Office and Business 2010, please help.


I wouldn't of thought anybody would give up the product key as this is their licence to use this software.

as a an alternative you can always download open office, a free open source document editor similar to word.

but please note when you save a document from open office you need to make sure you save it as a .doc file or a .docx as it uses its own file type.

I have office professional plus 2010, but all documents open in word pad not word.


Go to Control Panel > Default Programs > Associate File Type or Protocol with a Program > then scroll down until you find .doc and/or .docx in the list and click "Change program..." and choose either "Microsoft Office Client Virtualization Handler" or if that is not there "Microsoft Office 2010" and that should change what program the file type opens with.

I hope this helps!

What are the advantages and disadvantages of microsoft2003 and microsoft2007


Hi, the Microsoft 2007 has more features than the Microsoft Office 2003. Moreover you can save the the Document compatible with Microsoft 2003 from the Microsoft Office 2007 but you can't do the same with Microsoft Office 2003. For example Microsoft Office 2003 saves the Word Document as word.doc which is .doc extension but the Microsoft 2007 saves the word document as word.docx which is .docx extension. Both the formats can be opened with Microsoft Office 2007 but not with Microsoft 2003. The best feature of the Microsoft 2007 is it can edit picture properties like Brightness colour, grayscale...etc witihin any document of Microsoft Office 2007. A new version Microsoft Office 2010 has been released but the Microsoft 2007 is the best to use for more features and user friendly.

Finally I suggest you to use Microsoft Office 2007 or Microsoft Office 2010.

How do I open a docx file without it corrupting.


Docx file is the default file format for MS word 2007 and 2010. If you have those application then you can open it easily. If you have the 2003 and below version, you will need to download the Office 2007 compatibility pack and install it to your PC then you can open the docx file

How can i view the docx file?


Hello there, if you go to the Microsoft page and search for "Word viewer" it allows you to open any format Microsoft word document and view or print the file, but does not allow any changes to be made, hope that helps :)

When i receive Microsoft files with suffixes like .docx, .xlsx, .pptx am unable to open such documents in my laptop. What should i do / download to open these files. For your information i have Windows 7


MS Office 2003 and earlier will not read the old Doc extension files natively.

There are two possible solutions:

1. Upgrade your Microsoft Office to either the 2007 or the 2010 version.

2. Go to the MS web site and download a little program that will extend your MS Office to handle the new file extensions. See the link: http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?familyid=941b3470-3ae9-4aee-8f43-c6bb74cd1466&displaylang=en

What is the meaning of X in the word DOCX?


The X stands for XML (Extensible Markup Language), which is the programming language behind the scenes in Office 2007 programs.
Previous versions of Word were based on binary data. Binary data is, by nature, prone to corruption, and "bloated."
By changing the background code, Microsoft was able to create new tools and features in Word 2007 that would not have been possible otherwise.

Cannot open a file from docx documents


Hello there!

Well that problem can be caused only if you are using older version of microsoft office 2007. If you have MS2003 package, and trying to open docx file extensions that will not work, but you are able to use docx extensions with MSoffice2007 package. In your question you put that you already use MS office 2007 package,so i suggest your docx extension is somehow corrupted.

If you had downloaded it from the internet please redownload it again.

If that was your work try to save it in doc format 1st then in docx if you want to enable only msoffice2007 users to use it. Good luck ! =)

Please rate my solutions! =)

Sincerely

Please give me detail steps involved if you were able to successfully use this mehod to convert files....


Say you got tons of Excel sheets, PowerPoint presentations and Word documents on your computer that were written in Office XP or 2003. How do you convert all these files to the new Office 2007 format. One option is that you open all of them in the associated Office program and manually save them in the newer (docx, xlsx or pptx) format. Or follow these steps and convert all documents in one go.
Step 1: Download Migration Manager kit and extract it into a new folder – say: c:\office.
officepack.png
Step 2: Download and install the Office Pack – this step is required even if you have Microsoft Office 2007 already installed on your computer.
Step 3: Assuming that you extracted the Office Manager files in c:\office directory, go c:\office\tools, open ofc.ini using notepad and add the following line.
fldr=c:\users\labnol\documents
This refers to the folder location that holds your office files. I am pointing this to my Documents folder but it could be different on your machine.
Step 4: Open command prompt and go to c:\office\tools. There you’ll see a utility called ofc.exe – this is the Office File Converter that will convert all old Office files to the new 2007 Office document format in bulk. Run.
convertdocs.png
Immediately all old Office files in that folder (and sub-folders) will get converted to the new format and are saved in a new folder.
This utility works with Word (doc to docx), Access databases, PowerPoint (ppt to pptx), Visio diagrams, Excel (xls to xlsx) and Microsoft Project files. The conversion may however fail for password protected documents.
