Office 2003 Hangs system when loading profile

Question: Office 2003 Hangs system when loading profile

I was recently called out to a client's business to address their Outlook 2003 problem on a computer running Windows XP SP 3 2GB DDR1 no CPU specs at the moment.

Once you open Outlook the only thing you get is an hour glass cursor, and the entire system hangs. You can press control alt delete and see the option to use task manager, but you can't click on anything. The only option is to hold the power button to shut down the system.

I've tried the repair option in add / remove programs, renaming the PST file, creating a new profile, deleting cached files outlook uses, running scanpst.exe, and installing Office 2003 SP3. Automatic updates are turned off at the moment, because it seems "hot fixes" seem to run a "cold chill" down my spine when 5 other things break.

The only time I've noticed any difference in the way the program responds is if I create a new profile and select the option to choose a profile when loading Outlook. As soon as a profile is selected you see all the directories flesh out and the program hangs.

The new profile I created is a blank slate and has nothing more than the MS Welcome e-mail in the inbox, so I'm guessing the problem is occurring as soon as the profiles are loaded, but I have no idea how to fix this issue.

The only step I haven't tried is completely uninstalling Office 2003 and reinstalling because they can't find their original discs. If it comes down to that I've got magic jellybean installed and can pull the product key from there, but I'd rather not go that far if anybody has some ideas. I spent close to 4 hours working on this problem and would appreciate any advice.

Edit: One thing I have not done is uninstall AV currently running AVG Free 2011 and registered version of Malwarebyte's Antimalware. I did disable the e-mail scanner component in AVG, but that didn't have any effect.

Answer: Office 2003 Hangs system when loading profile

Status Report:

Still haven't managed to keep the system from hanging when Outlook 2003 is opened so we've opted to use Outlook Express. I'm having a slight problem with it though. My client somehow created a hotmail account in Outlook, and now the old PST file is not the file the default profile is using.

Since I can't open outlook without taking down the whole system, do you guys know of a way to import the pst file into Outlook Express, or any other programs that might be able to convert it to a csv file for me?

I've tried the normal import option and selected the "outlook" profile, but all I get is a set of empty folders and no contacts at all.

Hello folks,

This is my first post here. I'm an IT security student at a local tech college and one of my wifes friends has a computer problem she's asked me to look into. I don't know much about this machine or the circumstances around which the problem arose. I've been playing around with this machine to see what I can do with it but I'm stumped. Here are the symptoms:

The machine goes through it's POST and loads WinXP Home SP1, gets to the Welcome screen and things go a bit slow but finally gets to the profile selection screen.

When you choose a profile it gets you to the desktop with the background image loaded and that's as far as it will go. The mouse pointer moves around the screen just fine but no icons appear and the start button is unusable...in fact anything you click on (which isn't much) yields no response.

This state persists in Safe mode, VGA Mode, Debug Mode and Last Working Configuration mode.

I can get it into Safe Mode With Command Prompt mode and can navigate the file tree.

Regedit works fine but I'm not sure what I'm looking for there, if anything.

I've also tried to get it to create a BOOTLOG but it either won't do so or I'm not looking in the right places for it.

I don't know much about this machine other than it has WinXP Home SP1 on it, an ASUS A7N266 mobo, a Radeon 8500LE vid card, and a Western Digital HDD. I think it's an Intel P3 1.7GHz CPU as well.

Answer:WinXP Home SP1 hangs when loading profile

Quick update:

Leaving the machine idle in Command Line Safe Mode eventually starts the screen saver which runs incredibly SLOWLY.

Could this be:

Bad RAM?

Bad Video Card?

Corrupted Video Drivers?

Everything appears fine in the BIOS but so far I can't seem to generate any helpful debug information/logs at startup.
Thanks,

Answer:Outlook '13 hangs on loading profile, even after wipe and restore, Word '13 freezes 2

Back in the Office 2003 and 2007 days, Outlook and Word would do this when the normal.dot template got corrupted or infected with a virus. I don't know if the current Office uses that same template, but if it does, just delete it and allow Office to recreate it.

Hi there,
I have been running Office 2003, IE7 and MS XP with all the updates. I also run a small home office wireless network using a US Robotics 9108 router with a USB network printer attached (Brother MFC). I have a Lenovo 3000 N100 laptop with wireless connection to the router and the other home computer is a Dell desk top using a cable.

The network and applications on both computers worked fine for a few years until I recently tried to print an adobe picture I had downloaded from a news site. My laptop hung and wouldnt do anything and I eventually had to restart it manually.

Since then on both the laptop and the desk top Office 03 applications - especially Word and Outlook as we use them the most hang almost every 9 or so seconds for about 1.5 seconds. At the same time I have noticed that both machines have slowed down considerably and I have a lot of trouble accessing the network printer.

If I uninstall the network printer (any network printers) the hanging goes away. If I turn off the network on/off radio button, Outlook freezes and I have to turn the button on, and close Outlook using Task Manager.

This is obviously very frustrating and I have searched the internet for a solution. There are many that have similar issues but none that I have found that are the same, and no fixes I have encountered have worked.

I keep my machines as 'clean' and maintained as an intermediate user can (ie I can follow instructions and can do first aid, but not at programmin... Read more

HiHave a software problem, my one yr Sony laptop computer comes preinstalled with sixty day trial for MS Office SB Edition, however I have misplaced the 25 digit activation code. I have just reinstalled all my software due to a virus and have also loaded on MS Office Pro 03 for which I own the original cds as opposed to MS Office SB which comes preinstalled on my laptop hard drive However when i look under programes I can only see MS Office SB Edition, and each time i start up Word or Excel it asks me for the 25 digit reg key. I am unable to see MS Pro anywhere and start it even though i loaded up software and entered activation code. I have tried entering the activation code for MS Pro onto the SB editon when prompted but it doesnt like it. Any suggestions, assuming what I say makes sense?

Answer:Loading MS Office Pro 2003

Try uninstalling whatever versions of MS office are present in add/remove programs and then install again via the CD that you have.That should sort things for you.

Answer:office 2003 loading problem

Yikes. If you only have one copy and one license, you can only install it on one computer. Sometimes the licenses allow two computers if one is a laptop and the other a desktop and the two are not used simultaneously. With 3 systems running the same license / key, you're going to run into activation problems.

Hey there, I hope someone can shed some light on this. Apologies if this is the wrong forum.

My laptop has stopped opening microsoft office applications completely, yet it still appears on the add/remove programs list. When an attempt is made to open a word file for example, a popup with Windows installer comes up and says it is installing, but nothing ever happens.

The only thing I can think has changed is I've recently been infected with viruses/malware and I also used CCleaner.. would this have wiped it? I really don't want to have to pay for a new pack.

Any help would be great!

Hi All,
I'm posting this here per spunk.funk's instructions fom the Windows XP forum. The original post is below. Per his instructions I have also rerun the MBAM scan and attached those results as well. I tried running the dds scan but it seems to lock up part way through. It doesn't seem to lock up everything as I can still move the mouse, but nothing else responds and the clock seems to quit moving. The only way to recover is to hard reboot. I should also add that the bank said that the name of the virus is Gozi. All of the attached scan logs were run in safe mode as that is the only way I can get in without rebooting. I do have access to a Windows XP cd. Thanks for your help.

I've got one that has me completely stumped. My wife received notice from her bank that her PC had a virus. I ran a virus scan and it did detect and remove a couple of trojans and things seemed to be ok. For good measure I ran Malwarebytes just to make sure nothing was missed. It detected a few more items and I removed those.

Now when you load any profile on the machine, the profile starts to load, loads the desktop and wallpaper, and seems to load startup items. Then it just suddenly reboots with no bluescreen or any indication of the problem. I can boot into safe mode just fine and it does not reboot.

Then that profile also has the same problem and continues to have it.

I should also mention that this is a 2005 ish iMac running Windows on Bootcamp. Any help would be greatly appreciated. My wife has alot of data on the system that I would like to avoid losing if at all possible.

AV software acting funny means you are still infected. Viruses disable AV software so it won't detect the virus. Start MBAM again and Update it. Then scan it again. Click on the link in my signature for Virus Help do those things and post in that forum for more help.

My MS Word keeps not being able to "see" the printer (HP Photosmart C5280). The program actually hangs up simply when trying to Open many documents.
The actual error message is as follows:
"The printer has not yet responded, but the Microsoft Office program may be able to proceed without printer information. Do you want to continue to wait for the printer?"
Whether Yes or No is clicked, the program just hangs up and needs to be killed through the task manager.

All other applications (email, excel, etc) print just fine. It is JUST Microsoft Word that is causing this problem.
I thought I'd try using the Add/Remove Programs method to Repair the install...however, I can't find my MS Office 2003 Professional cd. I actually didn't even think I had the Pro version (as I have located a Office 2003 Student/Teacher Edition cd) so therein lies my problem.
I believe I just need to find someplace that I can download the PRO11N.MSI file that the repair thing is looking for. Only problem is that I can't find it anywhere.
If anyone knows of where I can get it, let me know. If anyone knows what the problem might be or how to diagnose it without the cd, let me know.

The specs are as follows:
Dell Dimension 8400
Win XP Pro Service Pack 3
Pentium 4 3GHz
1GB RAM

Hello deralickt and welcome to Seven Forums.

Are you receiving any error codes? Are you able to boot your machine in Safe Mode? If yes, see if you can access System Restore and go back to a date/time prior to the update. If you don't have a restore point you could also see if that update is showing in Windows Update History. If it is, try uninstalling it.

Safe Mode

System Restore

Windows Update - Uninstall an Update

The failed update may have damaged or corrupted some system files. From Safe Mode you could try running a System File Checker scan from an elevated command prompt (option two.) If problems are noted run the scan 3 times rebooting in between each scan.

SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker

Since you have an install DVD you could also try a Repair Install to fix your currently installed Windows 7 and preserve your user accounts, data, programs, system drivers, etc.

Repair Install

A repair install may require that you reinstall a bunch of Windows Updates. I found it's safer (but more time consuming) to install just a few at a time rather than all at once. If you install a few at a time you can reboot, see if there are any issues, and if there are, you'll know exactly which 3 or 5 or 10 updates you need to remove. Reinstall them one at a time. They'll either all install correctly or you'll know exactly which one(s) are problematic. (If you install all at once and later find out there's a problem it's almost impossible to know which update is inv... Read more

This has been running without any issues for about 9 months, I use it for the odd business letter, surfing the web and playing the odd game, nothing too frantic (Total War is the current thing wasting my time). The other night, whilst I was idly surfing, it simply decided to stop, and reboot itself. Or not, as the case may be.
It got as far as the ?Loading operating system? message.....and then nothing, it just sat there. Now, I was about to go to bed anyway when this happened, so I shrugged my shoulders and switched the machine off at the wall.

Since then, I'm stuck with that same message ?Loading operating system?, a flashing cursor underneath it, but nothing else.

I've always had this issue, and that is that the system hangs after loading the WinXP logo at the black screen right before booting into windows.

Everything else loads fine, just that it will stay on a black screen for a minute or 2 and do nothing, then winxp will resume booting in a hurry.

My winXP Pro is at SP3, but it also occurs when i was on SP2 and does that also even with a fresh install of WinXP.

So anyone got any ideas? i heard it could be ram, though i am not sure. Besides that, my system is as steady as a rock with no real crashes or any other random symptoms at all.

I just got a new board, a Zotac IONITX-A and am having a problem. It boots to BIOS fine and will start booting from HDD, USB CDROM and USB Flash drive.

However, at some point in the load, the system just freezes. I have tried booting the following:

From a USB DVDRW drive (case only has room for one 2.5" drive):
- Windows 7 RC Setup DVD
- Windows XP Setup CD
- Linux Mint 7 CD

From SATA HDD (OS originally installed in other systems, two different HDDs):
- Windows XP
- Windows 7 RC
- Crunchbang Linux installed in own partition
- Ubuntu linux installed using WUBI (contained within file in WinXP partition)

From USB 4GB thumb drive:
- Puppy Linux

Both of the Windows setup disks run the setup loader up to the point where the screen says "Starting Windows". The screen freezes and just continues to display the same thing.

Same thing running Windows XP and 7 from an existing installation on an HDD. In the XP boot process, it hangs when the Windows graphical splash screen is still fading to full brightness, I see a washed-out "Windows XP" and the process indicator.

On the linux partitions it freezes at various points, after the GRUB boot loader but before showing a graphical desktop. Howevere, it seems to be while there is still some text process to display.

My system is infected with some virus which i am not able to get rid off. Please help me get rid of these virus.

Symptoms and observations:
- system hangs in 5-15 minutes. Acts as if it has its own brain.
- task manager shows 100% cpu usage in no time
- system makes beeping sound
- at start up i get "Error loading: C:/documents and settings/..../local settings/application data/hrcopul.dll" The specified module couldn't be found.
- Downloader.Agent.uj shows up no matter how many times i delete it in Anti spyware programs. Downloader.Agent.uj shows up in AVG Anti-spyware 7.x (latest version)
- at the system startup it directly starts without giving me an option to select 'Start using windows 2000 professional'. I am not sure if i am supposed to be concerned about this. However if i use F8 at system start up i get those options which would ask you if i need to start in safe mode, etc..

Threats that show up in AVG Anti-spyware program:
- Downloader.Agent.uj
- Downloader.small.buy
- Downloader.Tibs.jy
I also noticed Trojon, and some other worms before. I am not able to run my AVG Anti-spyware program long enough to get these worms show again.

My wife's computer crashed yesterday. She got a blue screen and then it rebooted. When it boots it will load the BIOS but then just hangs on a screen that says loading operating system. I tried using the win7 recovery disk, but it was unable to repair the startup issue. I am also unable to select which operating system to repair as it does not list any. I think her hard drive died, when I try to select the hard drive to load the OS from it just tells me the disk needs to be formatted. Are their any other recovery steps I should take? Is there any way to definitively tell whether the hard drive is dead?

i dont know where exactly to put this since it spans such a massive amount of software and hardware anyways:

I have a Dell Inspiron M1050 with an AMD Triple Core (2.3 Ghz) and an ATI Radeon 4250 HD Integrated.
4 Gb RAM
500Gb HDD
Windows 7 Home Premium x64 (obviously)

so, ive had this laptop for over 3 years, i know its past the expiration date. anyways about 3 months ago it started getting the .wav explorer hang issue, where windows 7 tries to read .wav data and cannot support it therefor causing explorer to freeze. this was annoying but i fixed it by editing the Registry so it no longer is allowed to read .wav information.

After doing above however i realized that it was time for my annual Format and Reinstall. i completed that, updated everything, i have my 6 programs i actually keep on the computer and for some reason its incredibly slow. when i go to My Computer it will hang for a sec before loading drive info, and when i click to enter the drive it will freeze every other time. other weird symptoms were the drive pictures, in the left hand side (images for my pictures, music, etc) did not load. programs are taking forever to run, they run poorly randomly. and the worst is that webpages, completely randomly, wont load. itll be stuck in a loading loop. i run google chrome, but it doesnt seem to be software related. i have 15ms ping, 15mb down, 2mb up. so not internet.

How close did you come to the perfect install in Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7?

If there is much variance I'd do it over, wiping the HD first with Diskpart Clean Command.

Pay particular attention to how drivers are handled in Win7 as it's not at all like XP.

Once you get a perfect install you can save a Win7 backup image as described in tutorial so you never have to reinstall again.

hey guys been meaning to post about this or a while now. For some reason when I go to power on pc 99% of the time it hangs at the "loading operating system" screen at the beginning. to fix this I hit the reset button on my case and it usually gets by the next time around. (sometimes takes 2 resets)

It also seems that this only occurrs when the system is cold. When I reboot after it's been running, I don't seem to experience the problem.

anyone have any thoughts? doesn't appear to be a big issue at the moment, but more of an annoyance. I just done want it to lead to another issue down the road.

Hello! [I thought] I new a lot about computers until I bought a computer with the Vista Operating system.....now I just feel "dumb".

I was trying to reinstall my MS Office 2003 and as I installed it, my computer is looking for files from the various disks, this was not asked of me during the original installation [using XP] - they were found on the disk and installed.
I tried to find the files, but the program just sits there.... thinking.

So I bought MS Office 2007 Enterprise and during the installation, I keep getting messages the wwenterprise\msi or another [wwenterprise\cab]
simliar file is missing.

I am so depressed, I do not know which way to turn. I do need to have MS Office, so I need to determine if it is better to re-install XP from my old Dell Computer, or find a way to get MS Office 2003 to be compatible with Vista.

You folks out here are the "smart" folks... Please advise me as to what I should do to remedy this situation. Thanks.....

- [email protected].

All this time, I was using HORDE webmail for accessing all the above email accounts. I was not comfortable with the user interface.

Then I came across this article, which explained that I can have outlook 2003 as a mail client. Just I have to create seperate profile for each email account.

Following are the steps it was detailed out in that article.

Step 1:
open Control panel.

Step 2:
Open Mail.

Step 3:
Show Profile will be displayed. Then click add for adding a new profile.
My problem is, show profile is not visible. Instead it is displaying email accounts. As per the article, why it is not showing up in my system.

I tried my level best to find "show profiles" but no.

Does it say: Microsoft Office Outlook 2003
Or does it have a different version listed?

The Outlook you are using appears to be an older version, maybe Outlook 2000?
Which is fine, as the mode can be changed from Internet Mail only to Corporate/Workgroup mode, where you can add Profiles.

I would just like to know what peoples opinions and advice is on this?

Answer:Up-grade from Office 2003 to Office 2010 or Office 2013

 I can't speak to Office 2013, but I've done numerous upgrades to Office through 2010.  When you install the new version, you have the option to keep the old version or just replace it.  Starting with Office 2007 the familiar menu bar has been replaced with the ribbons which take a lot of getting used to for folks used to older versions.  There's a little program called UbitMenu that will add most of the menu bar functions back in the 2007 and 2010 versions that a lot of folks find helpful.  If you do opt to have two different versions installed at the same time, what happens is that when you switch from one to the other, it goes through a juggling act that takes a minute or so.  It's a bit of a pain, but if you need it, it could be a convenience.
 
Good luck.

My computer contracted a virus that caused Internet Explorer to pop up randomly and try and connect to the 'ultimate defender' web site. The virus caused a task bubble to pop up and display a virus warning, with various other virus warning windows continuously popping up. At various times it would even hijack my desktop and change it to a red hazard sign with a lighter red background that connected to a website every time you clicked on it. .

I also cannot open .docx any more when I could previously in Win10 mode and I think compatibility mode too.

Good Day,

I've often used the Files and Transfer Wizard to move files in the Windows XP environment, including those for people moving from Office 2003 to 2007, however, I've just been asked to move a person from a computer that would result in them moving backwards from Office 2007 to Office 2003; is this possible? What concerns should be considered? Obviously if they have a number of documents saved in the 2007 it could be problematic, though could the compatibility pack offered by Microsoft offset that concern? Thoughts? Thanks.

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.

Having upgraded my desktop PC to Office 2010, I need to import three seperate letter template files for use in Word. These were lost during the upgrade but are on my laptop, which still runs Office 2003, as .dot type files and I also have them copied to a memory stick. However, I am at a loss as to how and where to save them into the new programme on my desktop PC. If it makes a difference, I should add that I do not use Libraries and have disabled them.

Problem solved - with a bit of advice from a friend! Unsurprisingly, it's very simple.

- Open the document in Word
- Click "Save As"
- Scroll to top of folder list and, under "Microsoft Word", click "Templates"
- Name the template and select "Word Template" in the "Save As Type" list
- Save it

I still don't know where they are saved to but I can now call them up and use them.

Hello,

I am running Office 2003 on Windows 7. My PC is only 6 months old and everything has been running like butter. All of a sudden Office files open slowly when double-clicked from their respective locations (they would normally blink up). If I open Word or Excel and then open the files from there, they open quick. Outlook on the other hand, is just slow to load up...which it wasn't before.

I did a ton of research online and couldn't get a clear fix. My thoughts are:
Anti Virus? (I'm using AVG Free)
Ad-Aware Free? (Ad-Watch live is on...however it was on before)
Windows update or office update?

But obviously I'm here to get your thoughts. It's a pain in the ass when I bought a new PC so it could perform quick, and now spreadsheets and email take 20 seconds or more to open.

Hey guys, my wife is taking a course that requires her to install Office 2010. The issue is that she wants to preserve her current setup which includes Office 2003 and 2007 existing side-by-side on her Windows 7 (64-bit Home Edition) notebook.
The 2003/2007 setup is not one that she really wants to mess with (i.e., she has no interest whatsoever in uninstalling the two Office suites that she currently has), so ideally she would like to have Office 2010 installed temporarily (for the duration of her course) on the machine without interfering with the current setup.

Those issues are now resolved and I was able to keep my data. I see everything in the system has been restored except Microsoft Office 2007. I can see the files but cannot access the actual program. My word and excel files are there but I cannot open them without the program. I do have the Application and Drivers & Utilities CD's (DELL Dimension E520). Any advice would be appreciated.

Thanks,
Karen

Answer:[SOLVED] Need to re-install MS Office 2007 in Windows XP - (actually Office 2003)

You need the Office 2007 installation cd . . If it came with the PC, Dell should have included it in the package of cd's with the system

So this is odd. I have a user who is using office 2003, when she forwards an email to anyone using office 2007 the body of her forward is lost. However, if the email is opened via office 2003, webmail, or via a Smartphone the forwards are there. Iíve reinstalled office on computer A (the one with office 2003) but this didnít remedy the situation. Any ideas?

Does anyone know if I can easily upgrade my Office 2003 Student version to Office Basic or Standard upgrade versions2007?

Answer:Upgrade Office 2003 Student to Office Basic 2007

Yes, the 2007 Home and Student version of Office 2007 will do it. There's no upgrade for it, just the CD with Word, Excel, Power Point and One Note, stick it in and follow the install instructions. However, if you're going to be using Office 2007 and transferring files between versions i.e. Office 2007 at home and Office 2003 somewhere else, it's worth knowing that Office 2007 uses a new file format that isn't recognised by earlier versions of Office. For Word its .docx, for Excel its .xlsx, and Powerpoint .pptx.You can download software for earlier versions to read the new format, or alternatively, anything you may transfer can be saved in the old format. Thought I'd point it out as you mention a student version of Office 2003, and not all institutions will be using Office 2007 yet.

Hey All,

Here is my issue. The Company we consult for has not transitioned all of the way to Office 2007. We have a number of machines that still have Office 2003. Compatibility Pack works on almost all issues.

Current issue is one of our users received a PowerPoint 2003 that has embedded PowerPoint 2007 files. When the user opens the PowerPoint 2007 file Office 2003 shuts down. He has to download the 2007 file to his desktop.

From what I can see this is because the file conversion process shuts down Office 2003 before attempting to open the PowerPoint 2007 file.

Another issue that may be complicating the error is we had to run a Fixit patch from Microsoft that was causing Excel, Word and PowerPoint to be scanned which caused long opening times. I don't remember the KB article for that one at the moment but will find it if I need to.

Thanks for any help in advance.

Hello

I installed office 2007 ultimate alongside office 2003 professional. Microsoft outlook and publisher was removed from my office 2003 prior to office 2007 installation. I also opted not to install microsoft outlook 2007.

It seems that each time I load word 2007 or 2003 after previously opening the other version (ie. load 2003 followed by 2007 OR load 2007 followed by 2003), a window would opened up indicating that either the configuration or installation process is taking place, hence delaying the startup. However, once the program has started, it would run without problem. I do not intend to unistall my 2003. There was no problem loading excel 2003/2007, powerpoint 2003/2007 and access 2003/2007.

I am running on Windows XP SP2 that is regularly updated. Thank you

I'm on Windows XP w/SP2. It had Office 2003. I've had my computer since 2004.
Before I installed Office 2007, Office '03 worked fine. Then I needed '07 for a college class and installed a trial. Office '07 worked fine, but the MS Word shortcut in my quicklaunch bar pointed to Word '03 still. Whenever I'd hit it by accident, it would try to install Office '03("Please wait while Windows Configures Microsoft Office Professional Edition 2003). I canceled it on the second screen and it worked anyway.

The second screen had this:
Installation Error: File not Found

A required installation file SKU1E3.CAB could not be found.

Before, I'd hit cancel and MS Word '03 would get to working anyway. Then I'd close it and go into Word 07. I think there was some error message, but I don't remember it.

Answer:Entire Office 2003 suite looks like Office 2000

This had happened to me once but in office 2007. It happened when I tried to open an older file type so It went into compatibility mode, which also changes the layout.

Not sure if its the same thing with office 2003 but go into options, advanced, and see if you can find something like compatibility options or layout.

Anyway if its not their your looking for some kind of option like that so snoop around all the options, views, and windows menus.

I have 2 different Windows 7 systems that have this problem. When I install Office 2007 using the "Upgrade" option it does not remove Office 2003 and leaves the system in a confused state, especially in regards to Outlook. When I initially start Outlook it will say it is configuring Outlook 2007, but subsequent screens indicate an Outlook 2003 utility is being used.

With great pain I can manually set the default email client and do other pieces of the configuration and get Outlook 2007 running, but as soon as I reboot the system, it reverts to a confused state. I have tried all four methods Microsoft prescribes in KB2639197 to remove Office 2003. I have also used 3rd party uninstallers?specifically Revo and CCleaner. It still comes back after a reboot. I have removed BOTH Office 2007 and Office 2003 and I can reboot any number of times and it stays uninstalled, but as soon as I insert the Office 2007 install disc it ONLY gives me the upgrade option and returns to this state where both 2003 and 2007 products appear installed in a confused state.

I recently purchased Microsoft Office 2007 and upgraded from my 2003 installation (Word, Excel, PowerPoint) today. I can't believe how frustrated I am, I am regretting the entire purchase and upgrade. The composition of the toolbars is lacking options/icons present in 2003, the word configuration options are all over the place, and I cannot for the life of me find out where some of the most basic options are, such as fields. I didn't know the Visual Basic toolbox is gone until I read a help file on some website online, stating that Microsoft now wants you to purchase VB.NET separately.

I have used Microsoft Office since version 6.22 with Windows 3.1, I can deal with tabs instead of menus, and the new theme...but it is a serious serious pain when I can't find the location of options which I have been using for the past ten years. There is an old addage... If it ain't broke, DON'T FIX IT!
I think Microsoft will be losing many many customers with this one.

Yes, the changes are extensive. But Microsoft does have helpful interactive guides that let you choose a function in 2003 and find it in 2007. I hope these help.

Outlook
Word
Excel
Access
PowerPoint

Hiya Everyone.

Here is the little problem I have encounted.
This evening, I installed in my computer Microsoft Professional Office suite 2003.I installed all the components, ie, Word, Publisher, powerpoint, excel and access.
All the applications worked immediatley and correctly except, Access. This application will neither open or run ? I have uninstalled it, re-installed twice, but that particular component will not run.
Any advise would be appreciated.

regards,
Tony.

Originally, I had Office 2003 installed in my computer, & a trial version of 2007 that had already expired.
Today I installed a full version of Microsoft Office 2007, without removing any of the other two versions from my computer. I realized that it seemed to automatically remove the older version. I`m not bother about it not being there, as I got the new version, but I wonder if this is an automatic uninstalling that Office does, or if the version is still there but I can`t see it, as I would like to remove it properly if it`s still somewhere in my computer.
I checked in Control Panel & the only thing I can see is "Microsoft Office Enterprise 2007", the full version I just installed, & everything that come with it. No 2003 anywhere.
Does this mean 2003 is fully uninstalled?
Thanks a lot!!

Answer:My office 2003 disappeared after installing office 2007

You can check to see if it is fully uninstalled (I am sure that it is) by going to search and typing the name there. If it is still present, the program will appear.

Worst case scenario, just remanants will remain. Download and use ccleaner. If you run this software, you can be certain that 2003 has gone to software heaven.

If given the option not to use the reg cleaner inculuded in ccleaner take it. I and many others at the forum feel that reg cleaners do more harm than good.
