Question about Microsoft Office Word 2003

1 Answer

I have a user running Windows XP SP3 with Office 2003. The problem is Word minimizes suddenly without any notice and the user doesn't even have to touch or do anything. I have gone through repairing Office 2003, checking the network link, reimaging the PC, but still no Joy! I think it might have to do something with a Macro in MS Word. The network link is at 1Gbps. AD 2003 network domain. Couldn't find anything in google & other forums.

Change the keyboard, just in case the keyboard is randomly sending a sequence of characters (ALT+space+underscore, or Windows-D) that Windows interprets as "minimize".

Disconnect the network-cable, to prevent any computer "hacker" from having "remote-control" of Windows.

Dimension 5100 and windows xp pro SP3 clean install


I was able to dig this up.
Reference: http://4sysops.com/archives/tip-how-to-install-and-uninstall-a-program-in-safe-mode/

Run Windows in safe mode.
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\SafeBoot\Minimal\
Create a registry key REG_SZ key and call it MSIService and value data and call it Service, which is the windows installer. This will give you permission to uninstall windows service Pack 3 from add/remove programs while in safe mode.

Trying to load office 2003, keep getting message, requires elevation


This feature can be seen in XP as well as Vista computers. if such error occurs in xp try making a new user account with administrator rights and then try to install office 2003. also check the services.msc from run window and be sure that the windows installer is started.
In case of vista try installing from administrator account and if this is not working create new user account with administrator rights. even if this gives the problem then User Account control (UAC) should be turned off. this will probably solve ur problem.
