First, why would you ever want to do this? Okay, you need to go into your services via administration controls in the control panel. When you get this window open scroll down until you find "Remote desktop" or "remote assistance" and make sure the services are activated. If they're not, activate them or put them on "automatic".
If you have third party antivirus and a firewall installed make sure that the connection is allowed in the firewall. You can do this simply by disabling it temporarily and then trying to connect to Microsoft Support. Personally, instead of creating a new rule for MS in the firewall, I'd just remember to disable it when I need to connect so that the backdoor of the service isn't left open during normal operations.

Make sure you're connected to the internet!
Check to make sure you're up to date on all pertinent security and general windows updates.

If you're running anything older than Vista, MS no longer supports live support.

If you describe the problem you're wanting MS's help with I can probably troubleshoot it for you.

Sir i can't sign out from micro soft outlook please help me to find the solution?


email clients like Outlook doesn't have a sign out button. In fact, it does not need one. When we closes all window of outlook , it will automatically signs out the user from server.

If we want to force to sign out from email server without closing the outlook, there is a way. What we do is to tell Outlook to go Off-line.
You can find this option in File Menu.
  1. Go to File Menu

  2. Select Offline
this will cause Outlook to sign out and disconnect from using internet.
So if you want to connect to email server, Make Outlook to go on-line

  1. Go to File Menu

  2. Select Online

Microsoft office word document


this is because you have not activated your mirco-soft word, or maybe you have activated it and it has expired.

Go to your computer start menu, click all programs, scroll to mirco-soft office and click it.

From the mircosoft office you should find, "Activation Assistant for micro-soft office, click it and read information carefully in order to activate your micro-soft office as the product key will be displayed there.

Good luck.

I cannot open Personal Microsoft word documents after copying a document from the internet that required installing Micro-soft XP Professional 2007, without having the disk.

Hello and thank you for using Fixya's services.

It sounds like you downloaded the trial version of Microsoft Office 2007? If so, then you will need to also download the utility that converts the old documents to the new 2007 file extension.

If this doesn't work, then you can do a system restore by going to start menu, accessories. system tools and restore. Restore to the day before you installed 2007. This will fix all the issues.

Hope this helps!
