Please help. Microsoft Office Pro. 2010?

My Mom installed MO2010 on my computrer. I was re-arranging my room and ALL I did was unplug the tower and monitor. I didn't even diconnect the two from each other. I plugged the tower and monitor back in and went to do a Research Paper and all my Office 2010 things (Excel, PowerPoint, Word, etc.) say this when you click on them to open:
The operating system is not presently configured to run this application.
Please help me. I need Word NOW for my RP. I am not computer-smart so i don't read Computer language. SO please put it into english. Please help. You will be my lifesaver. I know it can be fixed, because all we did was unplug it long enough to move it. and it was working before that.


I am afraid you need to reinstall office 2010
Use the same cd/source your mom used and run the setup. Again

It should ask you to repair or reinstall all

Try each and good luck

But if you know how to do Anything with this or what it is or where can i get it. i welcome you to answer please. Thanks!


Yes you can
You need to use cookies, based on your technology that used to build the site (php, asp, .net, cms, etc)
You can set the password entered by user to save in a cookie, then match it against the password you like.

let me know if that makes sense, I will be happy to do it if you want and if the technology is something I know

How do I kick an Xbox 360 from my WiFi network remotely?

I'm trying to torrent and download here but my brothers are hogging all the bandwidth playing on Xbox Live! The Xbox 360 is connected wirelessly to the network so is there a way where I can quietly kick it off the network, secretly allocate all of the bandwidth to myself, or just control my home wireless network without them knowing?


Yes, sure
Most wireless routers enable you to control that using its IP (like
You should have that IP in the router manual
Once there, you can control who gets what
You can create password, refresh IP addresses, restrict access to only certain devices, etc

Ofiice Word and Excel documents icons are blank in Windows 7?

I had MS Office Starter(with only Word and Excel in it), I uninstalled it, and installed MS Office 2010 Professional Plus. The documents are opening good, but icons are blank... how to fix this, its annoying... Please help... Deleting Icon Cache didn't help... And EVEN System Restore won't help...


I would suggest that you run Office installation setup again and select "Fix installation" or may be called "Repair"
This might generally fix it.

Otherwise, you can go a head and clear the temporary files and internet cache, these sometimes do some interesting errors like yours

good luck

I can not type arabic in MS word 2003?

I can't type arabic in word 2003, I can type in excel and other programs but in word I have to press each space bar to type the arabic.


Word has two sets of keyboard keys to type (vs one set in all other applications)
I guess you already know that
Right CTRL+Shift will make it Arabic on most applications, in Word will make it write Right-to-Left
Instead, use
Right ALT+Shift to type in Arabic, even in the same direction.

If this is not the case, then I didn't understand the question well

I want typing in hindi on ms word and Excel?


To use any language other than English in Windows
You will need to install it first

Go to
Control Panel > Regional and Language options
And make sure you see your language in that list
and also make sure that you have the checkbox checked for middle east and far east countries

or something like that

How do you make a password field in excel so when you type in one of the cells, it comes up as asterisks *****?


Excel cell does not allow you to do this, you need to do an alternative ways, you got two:
1- You can use the TextBox from Forms toolbar (If you have Excel2003) or from Developer tab (If you have Excel2007)
2- Add a VBA form and add the text box to it.

Wether you do 1 or 2 you need to change the password property of it to make it show you * when you type in it

Again Excel cells can not allow you to do that, forget it

If you need help in doing this, or you don't know how to add a VBA form or Textbox to your Excel sheet, mail me here

Excel 2007 document protection & locked cells?


I've created an excel document that numerous users will be editing, however I need for only certain users to be able to edit certain cells.

I currently am using the track changes method, however it appears that there are ways around this.

Does anybody know if there is a formula or a function I can use to only allow a user to edit a certain cell if the username = joe.bloggs for example? Excel can clearly look up the username as it does so in the "track changes" but its how do i use this information to protect my cells?

Many Thanks,


The Standard way is to give the password to modify the file (Save As > Tools > General Options) to those people only allowing them to edit these cells, while others can not

The other way is to lock these cells with password (Review > Protect Sheet) and give those the password

In addition to that you will always have the macro way, but that requires more info from you

Why won't Excel open when opening a Word merge document?

I have Microsoft Word file linked with Microsoft Excel to merge. Used to be prior versions would automatically open up both files in it's respective windows (Word & Excel), but using Microsoft 2003, it just opens the Word document and when I try to manually open the Excel file (double click the icon) it says I'm already in it. Is there a way to automatically open both files by opening the Word file?


Excel have the feature of opening more than one workbook by double click on one Icon (It is called Workspace)
Not long ago, Office used to have Microsoft Binder, that enables you to put bunch of Office files (like Excel, Access, PowerPoint, etc) in one file called Binder.
But not anymore

The way you are trying to do, I don't think they care much about it now

I would suggest that you do one of the solutions below:
1- Create a hyperlink in one doc to open another (like hyperlink in Word to open Excel file)
2- Or, Do bunch of shortcuts in one folder to open all you files, select them all, and press enter, to open all those files
3- Or, may do some old fashion bat file.

I can not see any other way

Ms Excel macros problem ??? ?

it give the error

Macros in this workbook are disabled bcase the security leavel is high, and the macros have not been digitally signed or verified as safe. to run the macros , you can either have them signed or change your security level.

i reduce security level high to low , i also crate one password for that file also than after it give this error ?????

what can i do ???

give full information about this problem and how to solves ??


Excel does that even if your security level is low, you will need to enable macros

I can smell that you have Excel2003 or XP, then do enable when you open the file

IF you not enable the macros, you can not run them, whatever is your level of security

It should show you a window asking you if you want to enable macros

Click "Enable macros"

Excel Spreadsheet opens up blank?

Coworker wanted me to double check her work and when I open the spreadsheet it comes up blank (just gray) not even showing the columns and rows. But looking at full screen I can see it. All other excel spreadsheets are fine.


There are alot of tricks in Excel to do this, I just need you to check these one after another
1- Go to (Window > Unhide) and see if there are items shown in the dialog that appears
2- Go to (Tools > Options > Window options) and make sure you select (Row and column headers, gridlines, horizontal scroll bar, vertical scroll bar)
3- got to (Format > Sheet > Unhide) and check the hidden sheets

PS: If excel asked for password, then the file is protected, you will need it
