Question: outlook and word 2007 freezing in office 2007

I am running windows 7 on a new computer. Outlook 2007 is freezing many times after it is opened. I click on an e mail and it just freezes.
Word has done it also but not as bad.

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 (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hi all,

Hoping somebody can help me out here. I sent this off to Microsoft about a month ago and have since received three emails in response, one of which said 'try reinstalling' another saying 'are you sure this is the only program in which there is a problem' and a third saying 'please bear with us, we're experiencing high levels of requests right now and need more time.' That was ten days ago.

Yes. Well. I'm hoping somebody out there can help instead

So some background information. I purchased a new laptop about two months ago, on which had Windows Vista (business) automatically installed. I installed myself Office 2007 and updated all the necessary security features and upgrades and so forth. All programs are genuine. This is a decent quality laptop - decent speed (set me back around $2k AU)

About six weeks ago now I began having problems with my computer. It would suddenly freeze on application - the screen would go white and I would lose the ability to click on anything else. alt+ctr+delete had no effect, nor did leaving it alone for a while. Every time this happened I would need to hard restart.

After a system of elimination, I realised the problem occurred when I was opening 2003 Word Documents. (Almost) every time I opened such a document I would freeze up. As a uni student, I'm constantly receiving various documents from other parties which I have been left unable to access.
I say almost. After some testing on my... Read more

Answer:Freezing issue when opening 2003 Word docs in Office 2007

Office 2007 can read previous versions of Office no matter which program in Office you are using, other versions will need the compatibility pack from Microsoft so they can read 2007 version.

I did use Office 2007 myself recently in a temp job for seven weeks and I don’t remember seeing an option to save a document in an earlier version format, is the computer is still under warranty?

What ram and processor have you got? Some problems with Vista are caused because If buying a new PC or laptop beware of the differences between ‘Vista-Capable’ and ‘Vista Premium Ready’
A PC that is &#8216;Vista-capable&#8217; can run Windows Vista, but won&#8217;t necessarily get everything working. <<<<<<<<

&#8216;VistaPremium-ready&#8217; PC, can get all of the more demanding features such as Aero working correctly.

At the very least Vista needs a truckload of memory and a lot of the cheaper notebooks only come with 512mb of ram unless you have paid for extra, where at least a gig is needed, Ideally 2 gig of memory would be the way to go.

But you did say a reasonable lap top and going by what you wrote it obviously was not like this at the beginning. (Two weeks after you brought it, it started to play up, or is that when you installed Office and its been playing up since you installed it? (I am still thinking will post again if something comes to mind)

Running Vista Ultimate (32 bit) on HP Media Center Desktop Unit (8100y). Each time system is booted up and Outlook 2007 is accessed for the first time, Microsoft Office 2007 begins to reconfigure itself. Neither canceling of the configuation process nor allowing the process to complete seems to have any apparent effect on subsequent operations.

Performed repair function on the Office application without any discernible effect. Any help in resolving this issue would be truly appreciated!

On computer1, I have successfully created a customized form with user-define fields in Outlook 2007 and a merge document in Word 2007 that works (starting the merge from Outlook 2007). I want to copy the custom form with the user-define fields and the merge document to a second computer (computer2).

I saved the custom form with fields from computer1 to a *.fdm file using the Tools, Options, Other, Advanced Options, Custom Forms, Manage forms. On computer2 I used the same process to install the custom form file (*.fdm) into Outlook 2007 and created a new contact folder that uses the form and displays/adds new contact records correctly. I also copied the Word merge document to computer2. Computer1 and computer2 both have Office 2007.

All the problems occur on computer2. First, when I attempted to merge (starting in Outlook 2007), Word gave messages that all my user-defined fields did NOT exist in the database although I could see them in the Contact records. I attempted to create a new document and the user-define fields do NOT show up in the Word merge field list either.

On computer2, I created from scratch a new contacts folder with a new custom form and user-define fields which works when merging. Therefore, the problem seems to be that Word can not see the fields I created from the *.fdm file I installed.

Can anyone please help me with this? Thank you in advance.

For no apparent reason my version of MS Outlook has suddenly gone belly-up. All other apps. in Office work fine.
When I now try to open Outlook I receive the following "Cannot open your default email folders. The file C:\User\Maurice\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Outlook\Outlook.pst is not a personal folders file"

I have tried uninstalling and re-installing Office from the original disks a number of times, I have successfully installed this on another Win7 desktop computer partition and it works fine.

OK, so I have researched and read several other users comments that are having/had a similar issue with this dialog pop-up error message from Microsoft Word 2007. The most common fix I have found is to search for "officeav.dll" and rename it to "officeav.old" and restart my computer. That sounded like a promising and easy fix. However, I cannot find that file on my computer, anywhere, so that solution obviously will not work for me, and I am desperately looking for another solution, and so now I am seeking your help, please...

I just obtained an A55 ThinkCenter which had a 60-day trial of MS Office installed. I had no need nor wanted Office 2007.  Tried to install MS Word 2000. It installed without any problems, but it would not open completely and remained hung up. I used the Control Panel to uninstall MS Office 2007 and then MS Word 2000 worked. After I uninstalled Office I noticed that there were remnants of Office still installed. Does anyone know of a safe way to remove the rest of that Office Stuff?

If we have a press release in a Word document format, and we copy & paste the text into an Outlook e-mail, the formatting, in terms of size and font changes to Outlook's default. We've tried setting Outlook to RTF format, and then back to HTML format, to no avail. Is there a step or a trick I am missing, so we can copy from Word into Outlook, and maintain font and text size settings?

Answer:Word 2007 to Outlook 2007 Formatting

The default settings should maintain source formatting.

When I tried copying from Word 2007 to outlook 2007 the formatting stayed the same, but outlook doesn't have page breaks some of the text is layed out differently.

Can someone help me please. I have a word merge running from an Access 2007 form to word (Mr Kallals' great code). The problem is that I set up certain underlying tables with numeric primary keys and then their second field contained the text I wanted to show on the form.

e.g. Column 1 Primary key
Column 2 Location

So PK 11 shows as 'Anywhere UK' on subsequent forms and queries. The problem is that my merge with the VBA module mentioned above and the word merge operation in Access' export facility only show '11' instead of ' Anywhere UK'.

I'm really stuck and very weak with vba. But surely this is something that might be fixed from within Word as much as Access

I am currently running Office XP Standard for Students and Teachers 2002. I am attracted by the idea of trying the Office 2007 Beta but confused/concerned by review in August 2006 magazine and posts on other threads.Firstly will installation of Office 2007 overwrite my 2002 version or will this still be available to me?Secondly, I produce a lot of Word documents for local authorities (Policy and procedure documents) and am concerned that they will not be able to open these without having Office 2007 or the compatibility pack referred to in the magazine, neither of which is likely. Any thoughts gratefully received.

Answer:Office 2007 and Word

Unable to comment on the overwrite aspects.Office 2007 is a Beta version ie it is out there for testing and almost certainly has bugs. You produce a lot of documents for others and personally in your situation I would not run the risk of losing or corrupting valuable documents. I would go to Office 2007 when it is available in its final form and when the lcoal authorities also move to that version.

MS Office 2007. I was typing a lengthy letter in Word. After a while I quit, I think without saving my work by mistake. Now,
is it possible to recover my work from the auto saved portion?

Answer:MS Office 2007 Word

Autosave/AutoRecovery kicks in at preset intervals (default is 10 minutes).
So just how much has been saved depends on how much typing you did since the last Autosave.

To locate the autosaved file, Open Word.
Click the large Office button at top left, then click "Word Options".
Click "Save" in the left pane.
In the large pane, look for "AutoRecover file location". The path to the autosaved file is shown there.

Hi everyone,

Whenever I open a Word document (blank or otherwise), then switch to another program, and then go back to Word there is a 6-7second delay before I can do anything to the page. During this wait, the Windows "Busy" icon appears.

This problem started last week, and it is really annoying.
No programs were removed/installed in the past three weeks.
I have tried removing and re-installing, but to no avail.
I have added the location to my anti-virus' exclusion list, again no effect.

This is the only program that has this problem. I have OneNote, Powerpoint and Excel have no delay. I also have some Office 2003 programs installed (Access, Outlook, Publisher) but as I have said this problem began happening last week for no apparent reason.

Any help/suggestions would be great!

I am still using Word 2003 and Wordperfect 12 and am happy with both. But OMG from the looks of the reviews at you would think the new Office 2007 was a virus:

It seems that people are very upset to outraged over this new version and the responses seem to be about 10:1 or more AGAINST the change. The biggest upset, the loss of the Conventional Toolbar Menus, replaced with something called a "Ribbon." It seems that this has been a nightmare, even for professional Office users.

Has there been any consideration by MS to impliment a Classic Toolbar View for Word 2010, which I presume will be the next version? It sure seems that Office 2007, especially Word has been a living hell for most users.

Okay, here's an option as a work around (and sorry if this took too long to get to you).

Try opening Word without opening the file. Then, use the Word interface to open the document.

If this works, it might have to do with the permissions you gave to Word. If you have it set to run as an administrative program, turn that off.

So, back to Word 2007.

For some reason, the "Find" button, located in Home>> Editing, is grayed.

I recently have been working on a large document with lots of tables and drawing tools formatting neatly throughout approximately 20 pages.. I have been working at home and at UNI with this work and yesterday i reformatted my computer. After Re-installing Word i opened my document to resume working and to my horror the whole document was messed up, Completely out of alignment...

Is there a reason for this? Perhaps due to having some settings used previously that i need to set up again?.. But it does load fine at the UNI word which is the same version as mine. It seems as thought all the font is now 1 size too big...

Please can anyone help me?!
I have recently purchased a new computer which came with VISTA. I am using Microsoft Office Professional 2007. I have a document in Word which I have made a few alterations to, but I DID NOT enable the 'track changes' function within Word either prior to, during or after making the alterations. When I send the document to the recipient they can see all the changes that I have made in bright 'yellow' at their end. Initially they were not even able to delete the yellow text at their end but now we have managed to get over that.
I have saved the document in all kinds of formats, copied and pasted the text into a new document and tried all kinds of things to resolve this (spending approximately 5 hours) but it STILL includes all the yellow text at their end once I have sent the document - but I can see absolutely NO yellow text at this end before I send it! CAN ANYONE HELP ME?! this is driving me mad!
The recipients have said that my documents are the only ones that they have this problem with and all other documents that they open in Word at their end are fine! - surely this must therefore be something to do with what is happening at my end?! PLEASE HELP?!

Hi to all and thanks for any advice, as usual. I transcribe in Microsoft Office Word 2007, having recently had to switch to 2007 from 2003. I also use a word expander (Shorthand for Windows). I have found that while I am typing in Word (after say a few hours or so) that the software seems to lag for just a split-second. When typing fast or using my expander, this makes for many spelling mistakes. Does anybody have any idea why this might occur? I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling the software. Also, it seems if I reboot, the problem does not start again for a while. Thank you for any idea. I type for a living and this is really slowing me down.


Answer:Microsoft Word/Office 2007

Have you checked to see if there is an update for your expander software? Most likely an issue w/expander and Word 2007, if did not happen w/2003.

Also might try closing some running programs if not needed while transcribing, could be a resource issue.

You might also post a question here in word forum w/the version of your expander software.

When I do that it tells me to have the envelope situated in the middle of the Paper tray and Face up.

I would like to be able to change the default settings in word 2007 so that when I open a document it defaults to the "Draft" view (on the "View Tab") and the "Final" setting on the "Review" tab.

Currently every time I open a document I have to manually change the settings on those 2 tabs, as every document always opens with "Print Layout" selected in the "View" tab and "Final Showing Markup" selected in the "Review" tab.

Answer:Default Settings In Ms Office Word 2007

Answering my own questions (I found the answers by searching on Google -- too bad searching on ms word help doesn't come up with anything relevant!):

To change the default view when opening document to "Draft":
Click the Microsoft Office Button, and then select "Word Options".
Select "Advanced".
Scroll down to the "General" section
Check the "Allow opening a document in Draft view" check box.
Click OK.

To change the default setting to "Final" (i.e., to view "final", not "final with markup") in the "Review tab":
Click the Microsoft Office Button, and then select "Word Options".
Click Trust Center
Click on the "Trust Center Settings" button
Select "Privacy Options" from the list on the left of the screen
Uncheck the "Make hidden markup visible when opening or saving" checkbox
Click OK.
Click OK.

Note that if you are sending the document to someone you might want to make sure that when the document is (manually) switched to the ""final with markup" view there is nothing visible that you would not want the recipient of the document to see.

Line Breaks Without Bullets
When you're creating a bulleted or numbered list in Microsoft Office Word or Microsoft Office PowerPoint, you might want an item to appear in the list without a bullet or without incrementing the number. You can start a new line without a bullet by pressing SHIFT+ENTER. The next time you press the ENTER key, the new line will continue the bulleted or numbered list. Rearrange Paragraphs in Word :
Swapping paragraphs in Microsoft Office Word can be complicated. As well as having to cut and paste, you often have to reformat line breaks afterward to make the paragraph line up properly. Instead, you can use the SHIFT+ALT keyboard shortcut.
Click the paragraph that you want to move, hold down SHIFT+ALT, and move the paragraph up or down by using the arrow keys. Each press of an arrow key causes your selected paragraph to jump over one adjacent paragraph. Pre-define the Format for Pasting in Word 2007

I am running Windows XP with service pack 2. Pentium(R)4cpu. 3.20MGz 3.19MGh 512 MB Ram. I recently loaded Microsoft Office with word 2007 and it workes fine except it takes forever to respond to instruction. When I click the desktop icon it takes about 15 seconds to appear and then takes some more time before it is operational. Each time it has to operate it is very slow to react and the hourglass pointer hovers for some time before it carries out the instruction. All my other software operates almost instantly, it is so frustrating, any ideas, nothing too complicated or involving changing any settings please.

Answer:Office Word 2007 Slow to respond

Windows XP really needs 1GB RAM. 512MB, less however much is used by the Graphics set-up, is probably a little on the light side.

I'm writing a thesis (100 pages). I switched from Word 2003 to 2007, which is now upgraded to SP1. I'm experiencing this very annyoing bug and the SP1 update didn't fix it.

When I'm editing text, just suddenly when moving the cursor with arrows or selecting text (just doing some very basic editing) something happens. Text is moved within the paragraph about the amount of one word or so. But the screen is not updated correctly, text is moved at a certain portion of the screen but the rest is not updated. So the result is a total mess and I don't know what is really where anymore. I have to enter some line breaks to update the whole text again and get the screen updated.

It might have something to do with hyphenation or something, but I'm really not doing anything special. I couldn't find any other complaints about this, so it's strange. I could only find answers like "your touching your laptop touchpad", but no, this is not on laptop and the screen update is clearly buggy.

Has anyone else encountered this problem?

I have already downloaded microsofts free convert/export PDF/XPS and it works well but when i type out a document and try to save as in Rich Text Format there is no facility to do this that i know of. As i am new to Office 2007 i may have overlooked a command somewhere in the ribbon. Does anyone know if Rich Text Format is part of Office 2007 or failing that does anyone know of a solution?.The tutorials on microsofts website do not make any mention of Rich Text Format in any variation of their Office Suites or individual programs eg, word, excel, publisher or the rest . I would appreciate any help and or advice.Moderator Edit: Moved topic to more appropriate forum. ~ Animal

Answer:Microsoft Office 2007 Specifically Word

It does support Rich Text Format. In word click on the "globe" in the top upper left corner and click on "save as" and then "other formats"]Word help[/url]

Mom's system just got hosed so I had to reinstall. I installed Win2K with SP4, Office XP, and all updates. I tried to open a .docx file with Word, and it said I needed to install a converter from here:

I did so, and now when I try to open a .docx it says,
"This is a pre-release version of the Compatibility Pack and can open pre-release Office 2007 files only. Do you want to check for a newer version of the Compatibility Pack? (OK) (Cancel)"

So I click OK and it takes me back to the above page to download the same thing again..

I found this:
In method 1, there is no Office2007Converters.adm file,
In method 2, there is no HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Office directory in regedit,

I wonder if the release date of 1/6/2010 for version 4 of the compatibility pack might have anything to do with the problem. Could Microsoft have possibly re-released the pre-release version as an "update"?

Word was working fine before the re-install. And I've tried opening several files which were working fine before, with no problems, so it's not the file that is broken.

Any ideas?

I don't know about the Office problem, but free Open Office from Here should at least allow her to open and use those files. :wave

Trying to put a footer and a page number in a document in Word 2007 and can't get them both to stay in the document. Can have one or the other-what am I doing wrong?

Answer:Office 2007-Word-Footers and Page #'s

I'm not following. Headers and footers don't go away. They are always there even if there's nothing in them. If you insert page number field then it should display. It will also "stay in the document" unless you remove it.

Is your problem perhaps that the page number displays on, say, the first page but not others? If that is the case, you need to go into Page Layout and change the settings for Headers and Footers.

Summary:Upgraded Win Vista Ultimate x64 to Win 7 x64 [not a clean install; way too many programs to reinstall].Office 2007 Pro ran without a hitch [Vista Ultimate x64].After upgrading to Win 7 x64 I can?t get access to Home/Word Options/Advanced/Display/Show this number of Recent Documents [it is grayed out and tells me I need Administrator rights to change it ? Right clicking on and run as admin {Word} doesn?t work either]. Using Administrator login results in same message and grayed out area. [MS Word diagnostics applied ? everything functions as it?s supposed to]. I?m a lazy writer and prefer to pin the stories I?m working on, to the Recent Documents easy access panel.Searched the web to no avail. What am I missing? Thanks in advance.DanielP.S. More specific [system] info can/will be added if need be.

Answer:Office/Word 2007 Recent Documents - Win 7 x64

I think your problems may have started the minute you upgraded instead of doing a clean install. Okay, so more work involved re-installing your applications, but it's the only way to go if you want the best chance of having a well-behaved and stable operating system.For one thing, some of those applications and drivers in your previous OS may not even be compatible with Windows 7 - did you check them all with Microsoft's compatibility website before doing the upgrade?

Have not had the above version of Word for long and would be grateful for some help.Pressing the Office Button reveals a list of documents that have been created. So I have some questions: -a)How do you delete a document from the list ?b)If I deleted a document via My Documents, it still shows in this do I delete it ?I have tried right-clicking on the document but the option to remove it does not appear.

Answer:Microsoft Word 2007 - Office Button

Open up Word. Click on the Office Button. Select Word Options then Advanced and then scroll down to Display. Now just adjust the number of recent documents to zero!

We recently purchased a new Lenovo P51 Thinkpad with Windows 10.  Rather than spend $400 for an upgraded MS Office Professional, we transferred Office Pro 2007 from the old laptop to the new laptop.   However, we have encountered two problems: When one tries to copy a large block of text from a website into Word, Word will display an error message that it has stopped working.  A window appears that shows a progress bar and states "Microsoft Office Word is restarting."  This also appears if we try to click on the ?Proprerties? menu items.    Word then shuts down and displays all open documents as retrieved autosave files. Then after Word restarts, we try to save one of the eight reopened documents and get this error message: Save As           c:\Users\[name]\Documents\[subfolder]\[file name].docx           You don't have permission to save to this location.            Contact the administrator to obtain permission.            Would you like to save in the Documents folder instead?    Yes   No Ultimately, it is not possible to save the file on the hard drive.  It will only save to a flash drive.This problem only occurs with Word and Excel and not with Publisher or Power Point. Any ideas how to fix this?   Will uninstalling MS Office Pro 2007 a...
