Solved: two MS Office exists. Which do I keep?

Q: Solved: two MS Office exists. Which do I keep?

I noticed that in the Add/Remove that there was a "Professional Edition 2003 of MS Office (452mb)
and another listed for a "Standard Edition 2003 of MS Office" (62.27mb).
Can I delete the "Standard version"? or is it part of the "Professional" version?

Preferred Solution: Solved: two MS Office exists. Which do I keep?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Which do you have the CD's for?

When uninstall one you may need to do a repair or reinstall the other version.

At one time, I had Windows 2013 on my desktop computer. At some point I upgraded to Office 2016 and uninstalled Office 2013. However, every day for weeks now, Windows Update has tried (unsuccessfully) to install the following:

Security Update for Microsoft Office 2013 (KB2956151) 64-Bit Edition
Update for Microsoft Lync 2013 (KB2956174) 64-Bit Edition
Update for Microsoft Office 2013 (KB2899522) 64-Bit Edition
Update for Microsoft Office 2013 (KB2881001) 64-Bit Edition
Security Update for Microsoft Lync 2013 (KB2881013) 64-Bit Edition
Service Pack 1 for Microsoft Office 2013 (KB2850036) 64-Bit Edition

I don't know if other updates are being blocked because these can't be installed. Plus, there appears no way to tell Windows Update NOT to try to install these again, as previous versions of Windows had.

Any suggestions on how to stop Windows Update from trying to install these every day??

A:Windows update fails for version of Office that no longer exists

Hi bertsiskin, welcome to Ten Forums. It might be faster to uninstall office 2016 and then run the fix it tool from Microsoft to totally uninstall Office 2013. Uninstall Office 2013, Office 2016, or Office 365 from a Windows computer - Microsoft Office . I would bet that it did not uninstall completely. And then reinstall Office 2016.

I need Access 2007 for school, but I don't have it at home. I downloaded the compatibility pack from Microsoft's website, but Access 2007 files still won't open up in 2003.

Any help on this issue is much appreciated.

A:Need a Microsoft Office Access 2007 to 2003 converter. If one exists.

There is no compatability pack for Access, only for Word, Excel, Powerpoint etc.

You can however use the 2007 feature to "save as" a 2000, or a 2002/2003 compatable file at the school end, if that is possible..

Otherwise you mayu need to upgrade to 2007 at home.

I've got an app which streams images from a URL and saves them locally. I'm using the
System.Net.WebRequest and System.Net.WebResponse classes to achieve this. When the URL is valid it's fine, everything works OK, but when it's given an invalid URL, of a domain that doesn't exit, no exception is thrown and the request is redirected to openDNS. This leads to the stream writing out a small file which contains the contents of the openDNS response page. Clearly this is not the behaviour I'm after. If the URL is invalid I want an exception to be thrown. Even the statusDescription of the response says "OK". Does anyone know how I can get around this? BTW it's in C#.


A:Solved: Check if URL exists

Have a browse around MSDN C# function reference, I'm sure you'll find a function that will return the IP address of an URL or similar info that you can use to test the URL prior to your problem call.

Dear Tech Support Guy,

I have searched the internet and while I have found problems related to this, I had a hard time finding the exact same problem or a solution.

I installed a legitimate program which allows me to generate custom maps for a game I have Europa Universalis III. As you can see, there are three folders in the "Map Generator" folder.
However when I open the program and attempt to load a map I am able to view a folder which I can't view in Windows Explorer
I am able to use the program to load files from this invisible folder. It is very worrisome that I have a folder on my computer that Windows explorer will not show me. I am administrator and have set myself as the owner of the root folder and the "Saved" folder in question. Under properties->Security I am listed as having all access except "special permissions" which I can't select. Under permissions I am listed as having "Full Control".

Under the "Auditing" tab it states it is unable to display the current owner. When I attempt to take ownership I get the following error.
I assume this folder exists, how can I view it in Windows Explorer? I would like access to the files.
On another note how do I ensure that this doesn't happen again? Why does windows allow files to be stored on my computer but not make them visible even to an admin? How would I detect and delete such a folder? This folder conatins ~100Mb of information but Windows w... Read more

A:Solved: Cannot view a folder which I know exists

Using DOSBox I am able to confirm that the folder and the files exist. So I guess my question would now be how can I view folders which windows hides from adminstrators? In DOSBox I also noticed that there were other windows folders which do not show up in windows explorer. I assume these are part of the backup system.

My girlfriend's laptop (Sony Vaio, # VGN-CS220D) recently had freezing problems, as mentioned here, and it was working alright for a few days, but it started freezing again. I was going through the driver updates for it available from Sony's site, but it would freeze up around every third driver that I installed. Both the regular Disc Scan and the bluescreen Disc Scan from the bootup/Safe Mode menu finished without finding any problems, but once we log in from the Vista User Login screen the desktop is a blank black field, and while the task bar is still along the bottom none of the shortcuts in it or in the Start Menu will do anything other than bring up a brief flash of a window before disappearing. This is true for standard start up and all Safe Modes... (The only difference being that the black field says "Safe Mode" in all four corners.)

I fear that the computer has met its demise, but if there is anything to be done, I'd love to hear it.

Huh? What does this message upon startup mean? Do I need to fix something?


A:[SOLVED] "A duplicate name exists on the network"

Do you have a network with multiple computers (perhaps in a home with more than one computer, all connected to the same router for internet access)? The message means that at least two of them have been named the same. Go to control panel, double click system, go to computer name tab and look at the full computer name field. Make sure each computer has a different name in this field. If you find two with the same name, hit change on this screen on one of them and give it a different name. You have to reboot for the change to take effect.

I have a 2003 SBS machine and have various clients connected through exchange to get mail. Users typically leave outlook running the whole day while they work on programs such as access/excel.

I have noticed that on some machines excel and word docs open very quickly over the network until outlook is left open and connected to exchanged. we are opening the files on a variety of win 2003 servers, however when they have their outlook exchange account connected I have seen the docs take anywhere from 3-5x the normal amount of time to open.

I have also noticed that opening email attachments such as xls and doc are also very slow while connected to exchange, but it seems to vary from file to file, some seem better than others.

does the connection to exchange complicate the process of opening docs on remote machines or does it sound like I have a misconfiguration somewhere? I would like to get the performance of opening a file (say a xls) on a network share to be the same as it is when outlook is not connected to exchange.

I do not have these PCs running in offline or cached mode as we have a shared calendar that does not display correctly when I enabled these features. Clients are running office 2003,2007,2010. Turning on cached mode does not seem to make much if any of a difference btw.

Thanks for any insight you may have

My MS Office files have generic icons, and when I open them, Windows asks me which program to use. Office 2010 isn't even on the list. A trial version of Office 2007 came with my laptop. I downloaded the Office 2010 beta, then uninstalled 2007. Since I uninstalled the old Office, all my Office files are no longer associated with Office, and there seems to be no way to remarry them. Office 2010 (beta) doesn't appear in the default programs control panel. The only way I can open those files is to open Word/Excel/etc, and File>Open. I feel like this should be simple. Any ideas?

For those still using Legacy Office (97-2003) on Windows 7, any time you try to activate the animated Office Assistant, you receive a message that "The Office Assistant Requires Microsoft Agent 2.0 or better. The product is available in the Office System Pack." Read the following before installing:

1.) MS removed the MS Agent, which controls the Office Assistant on Windows 7 and above. The Hot Fix below, is contained in a zip file which restores the Office Assistant functionality to legacy Office users on Windows 7. The following link below will show you how to download the instructions to get the Hot Fix back. Note, if you are running Windows XP or below, you already have this installed and need not run it. See the separate Help documentation in MS Office, if your Office Assistant fails to appear in Windows XP or below.

2.) Furthermore, this fix is for Windows 7 only! Not Windows 8, Windows 8.1, or the Windows 10 Preview. You also will need to make sure you know the correct version of Windows 7 on your computer For example 32 or 64 bit. MS should sense the version of Windows 7 you are running, when they email you the instructions for downloading the Hotfix.

3.) The instructions say that this Fix only restores Merlin the Wizard, but it gave me "Clippy" which is the default Office 97-2003 animation.

Can anyone tell me how to re-install Microsoft Office? I've just had to do a complete re-install of Windows XP Media Center 2005 Edition (as a parallel, repair function was not working on the original version) after a blue screen error nightmare followed by issues with the keyboard and mouse not being recognized.

I plan on buying Office 10 in a few weeks (from my college's store, since I get a nifty discount), however my Toshiba laptop has a pre-loaded trial version of Office 07. I have not put in the trial product key yet, so I haven't activated the trial yet (but I have used Word 07 a couple times, but cancelling out of the product key screen).

What would I do to install Office 10? Do I remove Office 07? Would, after installing Office 10, i'd still get the Office 07 nag inside of Office 10? What do I do?

If I decide to install OpenOffice.org instead, do I then uninstall Office 07? Would my .doc files (from another computer and never opened with Office 07) still look for Office or would they open immediately in OpenOffice.org? Same question if I install Office 10?

How would one go about removing this un-activated trial version of Office 07?

Hi all.

I teach I.T. and many of my students, as well as the school computer labs have office 2003. For this reason I need 2003 on my machine.
That said I also am seen as the computer guru by fellow collegues, so often find myself sorting out their computer problems or giving advice on how to merge tables in word or create mark shedules in excel. Many of them have 2007, which is very different. Thus running 2007 seems like a good idea.

Hi, I just made an account here because I rather desperately need help, as I think I did something incredibly stupid.

My Mozilla Firefox has been giving me trouble for a while - it consistently crashed whenever I tried to select something from a drop-down menu on a certain page. Finally I decided to re-install it...and I thought I should un-install it first. Because I thought I still had Internet Explorer also on my computer; I did download it a while ago. Well, there's no trace of it to be found.

It didn't take me long to realize what I had done, so I quickly did a system restore to just yesterday. Mozilla Firefox is back as an icon and as a listed program - but when I double-click it, the hourglass appears only briefly next to my arrow for a moment, then disappears, and nothing loads.

I've tried to get the internet to open in a bunch of different ways, clicking links in my mailbox and using the Gmail symbol in my toolbar to "go to inbox," but nothing works. I know the internet's working because I can load my IM programs and talk to people.

So I just have no idea how to get the internet back on your computer when you don't have any sort of browser to begin with. I'm afraid I'm going to have to do something drastic like re-install Windows (and what's the consequences of that? Will it affect what's on my hard drive?).

So please, help will be vastly appreciated.

I just purchased a Win 8 laptop (HP Pavilion Notebook PC) for $400, after returning a Surface Pro 2 (total cost $1500 +).

A friend of my wife's has 'consulted' me about something I know nothing about (now that's unusual since I keep telling people I know everything!).

Her computer is nearly as old as mine and is a Dell with 98SE, PentiumIII, 128MB RAM and 12GB HDD (nearly 10GB free space). It is mostly used for word processing and emailing but not for serious surfing.

It currently has Office 97 which includes Word (or is it the other way round?) Her employer has offered to upgrade her in stages to Office 2000 and then 2003, so that she can do more work from home.

What she wants to know is whether the newer programs can be installed without first uninstalling 97 and risking the loss of the documents she has created with 97 (and with the MS Graphics program),which are currently stored in My Documents. I thought it would be OK but don't actually know, hence this post.

She has plenty of HD space but I wonder if the other system requirements of the newer programs would make the upgrade difficult or even impossible.

You should be able to purchase an upgrade to Office 2003, as long as you have a qualifying program in your computer. Once you have upgraded, don't get rid of the older program! You'll never be able to do an uninstall/reinstall without the qualifying program (which I found out to my disgust and chagrin).

My wife recently had a new hard drive installed, so while I was rebuilding her system, I thought I'd install her Office XP disk, rather than the previously used Office '97, it seemed to make sense as she is running XP Home.

Here's the problem. I work for a school district and we have been using Office XP 2002 for years (and years and years ). We are going to be adding Office 2010.

I even did "open with" and pointed it back to the Office 10 folder which contains Office 2002 and found the Excel exe. but it still opened in 2010 version. Same with Word and PowerPoint.

I still get the same message when I try to open an Office 2007 attachment in Outlook 2003.

OS is Windows XP SP3 fully updated
Office 2003 SP 3 fully updated

Any suggestions?

Thanks in advance for any hel on this issue.

Hello everyone,

So here goes the story. I had a couple of school files I needed to put into a CD-R. I inserted the CD-R into the drive and attempted to burn these files onto the CD.

I didn't know that the CD-R already had files on it. The School files were finished burning but when I opened up the CD I could only see the previous files that were on there.

The previous files that were on the CD before the school files were just random video clips, all in the avi. format. Now half of the files on the CD are still fine, they play normally on Windows Media Player. The other half of the files didn't seem to work.

I believed it was a common CD recovery issue so I attempted to recover the lost files, little did I know the files weren't even real avi. files. Here is the part that confuses me. The files that are not playable that come out to say "File Format not supported" do take up space. Some take up 1.6 mb, some take up 700 kb. It confuses me because the files take up space and claim to files yet they do not play.

When I tried using programs to fix the files it said the files were not even true avi. files. They still take up space though. As I looked farther into this problem I came to realize that the hex of the corrupted files seem to be quite different then the actual files that do work.
The good ones had "RIFF LIST or something like that" but the bad ones just had aslasga5s4f6asf15a1f... you know what I mean.

I attempted to fix this... Read more

I have a Dell Inspiron B120 laptop, and the motherboard CPU socket says that it is socket 479, not 478, mPGA. (The motherboard itself is the "Intel Celeron M 360". I'm hoping that dell didn't make a motherboard that only worked with the processor it came with to lock you in, but I wouldn't be surprised. I was trying to upgrade my laptop, and found places to buy things like ram and hard drives, but for the life of me, couldn't find another CPU in existence that used that socket. Anyone know of anything? Thanks,

A:Is there another processor that exists?

I heard a lot of dell hardware is proprietary, but I'm not sure.

Running Windows XP, Service Pack 3.

Trouble started three weeks with Live Care crashing system. Finally got everything running last night after a two day battle to install IE7. However, in the process User Accounts were damaged.

After reinstalling Windows XP and all software except IE7, everything worked fine. Had three accounts: Admin, and two limited accounts. pw protected. After IE install and lots of talk with MS tech support, only Admin appears on log in screen. Tried to create the two accounts since all data existed in C:/documents and settings, but error message is that account already exists. Created two new accounts with new names, transferred data, all is ok.

However, I would like to return to the old account names, so I changed login procedures to require typing in Account Name, which worked for the "lost accounts" so the profiles and data must be OK.

Is there any way to restore these original account names??
