1. Uninstall and reinstall Microsoft office
2. Install and antispyware and antivirus and make sure your pc is not effected with any such things which might attach them selves with the .dll files of the office and not letting you to type anything
3. close all the other applications which are consuming most of the CPU usage (This can be checked by going to task manager under performance)
4. Generally when the office program stop responding there is file known as hungapp.exe which stops working due to which the office stops to respond.
Hence it is strongly advised to follow all the above mentioned steps

Thanks and REgards

F12 function key doesn t work


Function keys are special keys used for assigning program shortcuts and specialty tasks to the keyboard.
They are located at the top of most keyboards and labeled "F1" through "F12."
Some keyboards may only feature 10 function keys, while others may have as many as 18. These keys often go unutilized by the average computer user, but they may have very important tasks for some users, which can lead to problems when the keys do not respond.
Fixing nonresponsive or malfunctioning function keys is quite simple, and should only take a few minutes.

Connect your keyboard to your computer, and power it up.
Open a program that uses the function keys such as Microsoft Word or Microsoft Excel. Check your keyboard for an "F-Lock" or "Function Lock" key.
This key is used to toggle function-key support; when it is toggled on, the function keys will not work.
Press the "F-Lock" key and then try using a function key in the selected program. "F1" is a good key to test, because it is set to open a "Help" document in all Microsoft software.
If the key does not work, press the "F-Lock" key a second time, and test the keys again.
If the keys still do not work and you are running the Windows 7 operating system, you may need to install a "hotfix" from Microsoft to fix the key functionality.
Navigate to the link entitled "Microsoft Support: Some Function Keys do not Work Correctly." (See Below.)
Some function keys or keyboard shortcuts do not work correctly on a computer that is running Windows 7
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/975741
Resolve unexpected Function (F1 - F12) or other special key behavior on a Microsoft keyboard
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/894513
Click on "View and request hotfix downloads" located beneath the title of the article to access the Microsoft Hotfix database.
Agree to the terms and conditions, then download the hotfix.
When the download is finished, run the downloaded file and follow the on-screen instructions.
You may need to restart your computer after the installation is complete.
Your function keys should now work properly.

How to fully genuine your windows xp pro (


these are instructions on how to crack the latest version of Windows XP with Service Pack 2 that uses the registration key: JD3T2-QH36R-X7W2W-7R3XT-DVRPQ.
**** IT WILL WORK WITH OTHER VERSIONS OF WINDOWS XP but not all! ****

This will allow you to bypass the Microsoft Genuine Validation thingy


this method works better than many others i've tried before. forget the cracks and injectors etc... this is the BEST WAY:

1) start > run > "regedit" (without the quotes of course)

2) go to the key:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\MICROSOFT\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\WPAEvents\OOBETimer

...and doubleclick on it. Then change some of the value data to ANYTHING ELSE...delete some, add some letters, I don't care...just change it!

now close out regedit.

3) go to start > run > "%systemroot%\system32\oobe\msoobe.exe /a" (again, dont type the quotes)

4) the activation screen will come up, click on register over telephone, then click on CHANGE PRODUCT KEY, enter in this key: JG28K-H9Q7X-BH6W4-3PDCQ-6XBFJ.




Now you can dl all the updates without activating, and the Genuine Microsoft Validation thingy won't bug you no more!!



***Notes, this works best after a reformmat***

Windows install won't accept product key code


Unfortunatly you're not going to get anywhere without a proper key for Windows ME. Perhaps call Microsoft and they could verify your key for you and try a differnt one over the phone? If its the key that is stuck to the side of your PC or on the CD case it should work, if its different to the version on the CD or is for any other Microsoft product such as Microsoft Office, it wont work. Sorry for not being of more assistance.

The license key to spreadsheet professional program is not being recognized. I typed in the number about 20 times, and all I get is a message saying that the number I entered is not correct


first make sure that you follow any letter casing(small/capital) exactly like it looks
second be careful with certain letter and numbers that look alike suchs as i,L,1. try each of these if you are not sure which one it is
third, try removing anything you have installed so far for the spreadsheet program and try to reinstall it

fourth, the only other legal option is to contact the manufacturer to obtain a valid license key

Microsoft Wireless Multimedia Keyboard 1.1 not working


Could be spyware or a virus. Try this.........If this does not help let me know.

Turn the system restore off. System restore keeps everything in restore. Meaning......... If you have spyware or a virus, it will stay in your system. Run Spybot S&D (This program is free and is better than using msconfig as long as you go through the settings and change everything to the highest settings.) Then do the same with Adaware 2008 (sounds stupid to use 2 things for spyware, but one catches what the other one does not.). I have links on my website (tandnfamilyelectronics-online.com). These links go directly to the download so you will not get the run around. You would do good to try a program called Window Washer. This is a great program that completely cleans anything in your computer that you do not need. It will not clean out anything that you have to have. I have used this for years to clean out my customers computers and have cleaned as much as 3 gigs of trash out. If you contact me I will give you some tools that I have for free that will do a great job on your computer. I have them ready to download and I will give you the link. (dean@tandnfamilyelectronics-online.com)

Window Washer free Download.
