When you rename a word file you need to keep the .doc file extension for it to open again in word. .xls for excel etc.

You may not have the file options visible in windows explorer. Go to tools > folder options > view and untick "hide file extensions for known file types.

If you mess it up you can open via windows explorer. Right click the file and choose openwith and select the appropriate program.

Tip

Renaming The Start Button:


To rename the start button, you will need a hex editor.
My preference is UltraEdit

Copy the \windows\explore.exe file to a new name (e.g. explorer_1.exe)
With the hex editor, open that file and go to offset 412b6
You will see the word start with blanks between each letter
Edit it be any 5 characters or less
Save the file
Boot to DOS
Copy the existing c:\windows\explorer.exe to explorer.org
Copy explorer_1.exe to explorer.exe
You will also need to replace the explorer.exe in the c:\windows\system32\dllcache file as well with the new one.
Note: If the partition is NTFS and you can't access the files from DOS:

Start Regedit
Go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \ SOFTWARE \ Microsoft \ Windows NT \ CurrentVersion \ Winlogon.
Change the value of Shell from Explorer.exe to explorer_1.exe

When i install ms office 2007 , after some installation there is a prob to proplus/ww some thing and instslation hangs . what can i do?


If you have a usable activation key for Office you can re-download the entire office 2007 package from C'Net.
For Office 2007 Enterprise: http://download.cnet.com/Microsoft-Office-Enterprise-2007-Trial-Version/3000-18483_4-10742067.html
For Office 2007 Standard: http://download.cnet.com/Microsoft-Office-Standard/3000-18483_4-10651636.html?tag=mncol;4
For Office 2007 Home and Student: http://download.cnet.com/Microsoft-Office-Home-amp-Student/3000-18483_4-10704798.html
Once you download and install there will be an option for activation using your existing activation key.
If this doesn't solve your problem you may be having other issues with Windows or your hardware which would require looking at the exact error within the Event Log (Eventvwr.exe) that will explain what part of the ProPlus.cab file couldn't be copied/installed.
Hope this helps!
