Re: ms word

Go to the "Add and Remove Programs" in your Control panel. Do a "Change" and do the 'repair program' utility.

That should fix it, good as new.

Be sure to have your INSTALL disk handy.

I can't open my docs yet I KNOW they haven't been deleted because I am able to email them. How do I fix this?

MS Word offers several different views in which you can read and work on documents.
The view you are using when you save a document will be the default view when you open that same document the next time.
Likewise, if you open a document created by someone else, the view in which they saved it will be the default for that file unless you change it and save it again.
You can change your default Word template, though, so that new Word documents always open in the view of your choice.

Close any Microsoft Word documents or windows on your computer.
Locate the \"\" file on your computer.
This is the default template for all new Word documents. If you are using Windows XP, navigate to \"c:\\documents and settings\\username\\application data\\Microsoft\\templates\", changing \"username\" to your user name on the computer.
For Windows Vista or Windows 7, go to \"c:\\users\\username\\appdata\\roaming\\Microsoft\\templates\", again, changing the username to your user name on Windows.

Right-click \"\" and select \"Open.\"
A new Word document will open, which is actually the default document template.

Change the view to the one you desire.
To do so in Word 2003, go to the \"View\" menu and click on the view you want to use.
In Word 2007 or 2010, go to the \"View\" tab and select a view.

Type something into the document and then delete it.
This allows Word to recognize that a change has been made to the template without adding any unwanted items.
Click the \"Save\" button or press the \"Ctrl\" and \"S\" keys to save the changes to your default Word template.

How to save your Open/Libre Office documents by default in Microsoft Office...

There are many people out there who are looking for great open source software, and some of you have stumbled upon Open Office or Libre Office. This is a great alternative to Microsoft Office but with one small problem. It is always trying to get you to save in the Open Document format instead of a Microsoft Office format that your friends and coworkers can open and use. Well I am going to show you a solution to this problem!

Open up any of the programs in the Open/Libre Office suite. Once it is open go into the Tools menu and select "options". From there, expand the Load/Save option and then select "general"


Near the bottom you will see a heading for "Document Type". Select the dropdown box under that and select "Text Document" and then select the dropdown box under "Always Save as" and then select "Microsoft Word 97/2000/XP". After that go back to the "Document Type" and select "Spreadsheet" and set always save to "Microsoft Excel 97/2000/XP". Lastly Choose "Presentation" and always save as "Microsoft PowerPoint 97/2000/XP". Once you do this hit "OK" and your changes will be saved. From now on everytime you save a Word document, an Excel spreadsheet or a PowerPoint presentation it will by default save as a Microsoft Office format!

Office XP Pro

The "Normal" template opens whenever you start Word, and it includes the default settings for your new documents... as well as any customizations you may have opted for along the way. Sounds like your version of the normal template now includes the text of this document.

On the File menu, click Open, and then navigate to C:\Documents and Settings\user name\Application Data\Microsoft\Templates and look for "". You may need to change the Files of Type drop box to "Document Templates" to see it.

Open the file, select all the text you see there and delete it. Save the file and close it. You should get clean pages now when you open a new document.

Alternatively, you can use Windows Explorer to navigate to that same directory and delete the entire file. MS Office will simply create a fresh one when you launch Word again.

Hope that helps!
Good luck.
