You might want to do a scan of the computer for any virus infection. If you have observed that this happens only to MS Word 2003, check for the CPU utilization by going to the Task Manager and clicking the Processes tab; look for the process that eats out high resources and try to End that process. If it stops the slowdown, then that might be the one causing the problem.

Further, if you have the installation disc with the product key, you can just reinstall MS Office.

Should you need further assistance, please let me know. Thank you for using FixYa.

Excell 2007 very slow to open


Speed up Excel 2007 startup The Problem If Excel isn't running already, double-clicking a file will start Excel itself almost immediately, but the clicked file will be loaded only after about one minute.
The Solution At least on Windows XP the problem can be solved as described below.
  1. Application Explorer
  2. Menu Tools
  3. Menu item Folder Options
  4. Tab File Types
  5. List item XLS
  6. Button Advanced
  7. List item Open
  8. Button Edit...
In the dialog box that appears you need to make two adjustments:
Application to perform action:At the end of the line after /e append a space character followed by "%1" (including the quotes)DDE Application Not Running:Insert new text: [rem see command line] (including the brackets) Details We experienced the problem after updating to MS Office 2007. My father noticed that an Excel sheet gets loaded immediately if you include the path of EXCEL.EXE in the command line. Loading documents via DDE, as Explorer does it, seems to take much more time, at least if the application is not already running. The modifications described above will pass the file path immediately when the application is started, the DDE command that gets executed later on is only a remark, as an empty field would result in passing the default action from two lines above that field. The /e seems to ensure that Excel will not open an empty sheet, so I originally dropped that because usually no empty sheet is opened when a file is specified. However I got a report from someone using /e, and as it didn't cause any harm for me either, I now suggest to leave it in place. If Excel is running already, additional documents will be opened via DDE as before, resulting in only one Excel process running.
Word Time and again I've been asked whether I knew a similar trick for Word. Even without any tricks Word starts fairly fast, but even there adding "%1" gave me a slight increase in startup speed. I don't exactly know what this [REM _DDE_Direct] is. It looks like some kind of "special comment", that could have some effect despite being a comment. I decided to copy that comment to the DDE Application Not Running box, and could not detect any ill effects. I also kept the /n and the /dde on the command line, simply because I could find no harm in it.
Uninstall If you try out these suggestions, but they don't work out for you, reverting to the way it was before might prove more difficult than you would expect. It seems the dialog where you make your changes will always append a %1 to the command line when you press OK and it isn't present already. The only solution I could find was using regedit to remove the %1 without using the dialog. The command is stored under the default key at HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Excel.Sheet.8\shell\Open\command. If you choose to revert the DDE settins using regedit as well, you can simply remove the whole ddeexec\IfExec subtree.

MS word not responding


Rename all instances of your document template files (Normal.dotm or Normal.dot) This will prevent formatting changes, AutoText entries, and macros that are stored in the global template (Normalm.dot or Normal.dot) from affecting the behavior of Word and documents that are opened.

Renaming the template lets you quickly determine whether the global template is causing the issue.

When you rename the Normal.dotm template in Word 2007 or the Normal.dot template in Word 2003 and in earlier versions of Word, you reset several options to the default settings. These include custom styles, custom toolbars, macros, and AutoText entries.

Http/1.1 internal server error


If you are running two versions of ASP.NET, you may get HTTP:/1.1 500 Internal Server Error when creating a new Web project or opening an existing Web project in Visual Studio.

This problem may occur when IIS is not sure what version of ASP.NET to use or where to locate ASP.NET files. One of the following solutions should fix the problem.

Solution 1.

  1. Remove web.config file from inetpub/wwwroot directory
  2. Go to IIS, Right click on Default web site / All tasks / Check server extensions and let it run
  3. Reset IIS by right click on IIS or call iisreset from Run command

Solution 2.

  1. Install ASP.NET again using the following command from your Run command: C:WINNTMicrosoft.NETFrameworkv1.1.4322aspnet_regiis.exe
    Make sure to change the windows folder and ASP.NET version folder with the version what you want to install
  2. Reset IIS

Solution 3. Applies to Windows Server 2003
Note: This is a Microsoft KB article:

When you try to create a new Microsoft ASP.NET 1.1 application after you change the script mapping of the existing ASP.NET 1.1 Web application to ASP.NET 1.0 on a Microsoft Windows Server 2003-based computer, you may receive the following error message:
The Web server reported the following error when attempting to create or open the Web project located at the following URL: 'http://localhost/822319ev1'. 'HTTP/1.1 500 Internal Server Error'.
CAUSE
This issue occurs because Windows Server 2003 does not allow two versions of ASP.NET to run in the same application pool.
WORKAROUND
To work around the problem, do one of the following:
Restart the IIS before you create a new ASP.NET 1.1 application. At the command prompt type the following command: iisreset
OR -
Create an ASP.NET application in a separate application pool. Create the script-mapped application (ASP.NET 1.0) in a separate application pool -- for example, in the ScriptMapappPool application pool. Then, create a new ASP.NET 1.1 application in an application pool other than ScriptMapappPool. For more information about how to create an application pool, visit the following Microsoft Web site: Configuring Application Pools http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/1kdfe21k(VS.80).aspx

I have sent a word document created in vista, and have sent it to an XP user. They cannot open or view the document. How do I change the settings in Vista to resend the document?


You need to make sure that the file extension is correct, for example .doc because there are others that a .docx extension as well. One thing is that make sure whenever you are saving a word document try to save it as Word 97-2003 document, in that way it can open to any other Microsoft Word application without thinking what kind of operating system does the computer have.

Keyboard locked out for microsoft word 2003


It's not the keyboard. If it was, it wouldn't work in anything.

It's possible that the "normal.dot" template is protected. This will result in any document created using that template also being protected. Try going into File -> New and creating something specific, for example a menu, that uses a different template. If suddenly you can use the keyboard, then you've found the problem.

Under those circumstances, use the Windows Search tool to find the file "normal.dot" and delete it. When you run Word again it will create a new, unprotected document template called "normal.dot" and Word should function correctly from then on.
