Im trying to repair my excel and word starter 2010?

When i go to programs they aren't on the list although the icon is right there on the desktop, how can i get them on the list?


Answer

You need to use the installation CD, to re install Office Starter, or use another option called "Repair"

Otherwise, you may need to re install the whole system (Windows and everything) if Office starter came with Laptop itself

Recently uninstalled Winzip and I can't download stuff anymore?

Well I recently uninstalled Winzip because I whenever I downloaded something, it would show up as winzip and when I clicked on it, I needed to get the pro version of Winzip. I deleted it and now whenever I try download something it just shows up as if its an Internet Explorer file and then when I click on it in uncontrollably duplicates itself and keeps popping out so I have to manually reboot my computer. So how can I download stuff normally again. By the way I have a PC Windows Vista and I'm trying to download Paint.NET. Thank you.


Answer

You just need a program that register .zip files with
When you first installed WinZip, it overwrites the default registration of .zip (Which was with Windows extract app)
And after uninstall, the .zip files are not registered with any app

So installing a program that register .zip files with, will solve the problem

I would suggest installing 7z, it is a free and light, and does what WinZip does mostly

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...


Answer

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

My excel is not working on my 2003 professional edition of microsoft. How do I get it to work again?

I just got rid of a virus and tried to upload microsoft updates. Now excel doesn't work. Every time I try to open it, it tells me that it is installing the new version. Then it says the network is unavailable and something about PRO11.MSI.


Answer

It is obvious, you will need to reinstall Office2003 again
You need to have the CD for it, the same original CD you installed it the first time, to do Installation repair.

When you insert the CD, you will have several options one of them is Reinstall Office to fix some errors.

Excel 2007: Autoshapes dislocated on printing?

I have a 2003 excel file which has many arrows (autoshapes)... once we upgraded to office 2007, these arrows appear bit moved (dislocated) when printing or previewing. Tried file xls and tried to upgrade it to xlsx and still the same problem when opening in Excel 2007. Any idea why this is happening? is it a bug of compatiibiltiy between Excel 2007 and Excel 2003?
why?


Answer

Mostly yes, it is a bug

I would recommend to open that file in Excel2003 and group these objects then save the file and use it in Excel2007

Also, try the following:
1- Install the same printer you were using in Excel2003 and make it default
2- Do some cleaning to your computer (Follow these steps http://answers.yahoo.com/question/index?…
3- Make sure you have the Print scale to 100%

How can retrieve the InstallDate for Windows and MS Office with an Excel Macro ?


Answer

The date of Windows installation is the date that Administrator account was created (or your User account)
And the date of Office istalled is the date of Microsoft Office folder was created
So
Depend on your Windows version (VISTA or XP) use this code to get the installation date/time of Windows

Sub WinDate()
Dim fs, fo
Set fs = Server.CreateObject("Scripting.FileSyste…
Set fo = fs.GetFolder("c:\Users\Administrator")
MsgBox fo.DateCreated
End Sub

Change the c:\Users\Administrator to c:\Documents and Settings\Administrator if you have WinXP
(Although the second one will run in VISTA as well)

Do the same for c:\Program Files\Microsoft Office

good luck

How the process of retrieving data once it is deleted from computer works??


Answer

The deleting does not occur on the files body.
It wipes out the first letter of the file name only, then mark the file body as free (Does not empty it) to be used when needed.
That is why SOMETIMES we can Undelete, and SOMETIMES we can not.

And that is why you need a software to WIPE a file to ensure that you deleted it.

How do you burn programs onto dvd disks?

How do you burn programs onto dvd disks? And what is the the most memory a dvd can hold?


Answer

If you have a DVD burner, You can easily write any thing on it either using it's own program (Install it from the attached CDs) or using Windows by just Copy-and-Paste the files into the Cd then select "Write these files to cd" from the File menu.




The most DVD type can hold up to 4.5 GB of memory, Double layer DVDs can hold up to 8.5 GB, the new Ultra DVD can hold up to 17 GB of memory.
You must make sure the your burner support the technology of the DVD blank you are writing in.

It seams to me that your SVGA card (Graphic card) problem. Try to reinstall the driver for it, If it still the same I am afraid that your Graphic card is damaged and need to be replaced.

Why does photo gallery keep trying to set up on my computer?


Answer

Becuase you didn't finish it in first time, or the setup application was terminated unexpectedly.
try to set it up again and finish it this time, then remove it from the control panel.
This is the easiest way.
OR
Get one of those registry program that enables you to access the startup fields to remove the one that runs the setup.

Why wont my Limewire open?

Ok Limewire was working fine until i tried to download counterstrike. After that i gave up becuase i couldnt get it to work. When i tried to open BF2 nothing happened except it froze loading the black screen. It kept doing this counteuiously. I performed a system restore and everything was going fine.. except limewire kept popping up every 10 seconds and my ctrl alt delete wouldnt work. I restored again and got everything working fine. Later when I tried to start Limewire it wouldnt come up and all i got was the little hourglass for a split second like it was going to load it but it cant. I really need my music!!!! I have tried uninstalling and installing but that didnt work. BTW I did a spybot scan and found viruses so I killed them. I also tried undoing those viruses to see if it would work then, but it still didnt so i killed them again. PLZ HELP!!!!


Answer

I don't think you can solve this problem without installing antivirus software, And As it mentioned get ready to format and reinstall Windows because will see a brand new creative problem every day.
BUT you still can get your music by copying the files in C:\Program files\Limewire this is the place where it usually saved your music, Unlless you change it.
