Microsoft Office 2003 slow start up then won't open files

It takes literally 10 minutes for the program to load. Once open when I try to open a Word doc it shows it's doing a virus scan but doesn't open. No Excel files will open either. I tried re-installing Office but it did not fix the problem. I can email the documents to myself at work and they open normally. Any suggestions?

    This morning my computer was slow to open and no Microsoft Office program will open...word, excel, etc. I also cannot reply or send email because Word is the editor of email.

    I've had this before. It usually meant it was time for a new computer. I hope that's not the case for you.

We have windows xp but microsoft 2003 loaded. Files come out as ODT files when we try to open them on another computer Can we convert them to files that can be opened?


It seems you actually have OpenOffice.org installed, not Office 2003. The filetype that it saves as default are ODT files, to solve this:
  1. Open the file on the computer you saved it on, and choose File>Save As.. and select the .doc format.
  2. Or use this site to convert the documents.
  3. To make saving .doc files the default behaviour, open the program, go to Tools>Options, click the Load/Save option on the left, and then General.
  4. In the bottom right, search for "Always save as" and select "Microsoft Word 97/2000/XP"
  5. Refer to this picture: crash91.png

Speed


Actually there are many reasons why your computer will boot up slow. I can only give you some tips.

Click start>run>type msconfig. On the startup tab uncheck any program that you don't need on startup.

Delete Prefetch files. Prefetch files are being created by windows when you open a program so thaht the next time you open the program it will pull up faster. But having too much prefetch helps slow your computer down on startup because it loads on startup. to delete go to start>run> type prefetch. delete all that you will see there.

For trojan problems the best way to remove them is by running a scan of updated antivurus program. If you don't have one. try SuperAntispyware. it worked for me. =)
