Hey,
I was doing some work on MS Word and saved that closed it and went on with Surfing on Mozilla Firefox it froze so I turned off the computer normally and about hour an later turned the computer on and MS Office is Unistalled! When I click on MS Word it takes me to this FrontPage CD Installation Setup Windows and this is a pre-owned Computer didn't get any CDS!! So any help would be greatly apprecitated. And also ERUNT and NT Registry Optimizer which I haven't used in ages work but the ERDNT's Restore says some Symantec file was not there and fails:

And system restore didn't do anything and MS Wors worked perfectly this morning.
Thanks

PS: Have Windows Up-to-date and really need MS Word back in the middle of some important work. And even MSN Messenger went through the Installation Bar Screen like in Windows 2000 :thumbsup:

Is there a hidden partition with restore information on this system? If so, it's probably your best bet. Fixing Office will require the installation files

Or, you could try this free, open source office suite ( http://www.openoffice.org/ ) which will read Microsoft Office documents and will let you work on them in OpenOffice.

Thanks Usasma, I just figured that if I go to the MS Office Folder: C:/Program Files/ MS OFfice/WINWORD after about three installation windows MS Word comes up so it is not fully uninstalled.....I dont think so.

OK, so it's not uninstalled - then you should be able to run the "Repair" function in the Help menu of any Office program. You can also just create shortcuts to the executables if you'd like.

While I'm not 100% sure - I don't believe that OpenOffice made Bit Torrent. It appears that Open Office is done by an open organization - whereas Bit Torrent is run by a company in San Francisco.

PS: Did OpenOffice make BitTorrent?


While I am not usasma. If I may I'd like to add a reply to your very good question I've quoted.

In a word No. What may have been confusing is these terms "Download OpenOffice.org using P2P Technology

To download OpenOffice.org using our BitTorrent servers, simply select your download using these three simple steps."


They are two entirely different organizations as you can see from the links provided.

OpenOffice.org

Before you do anything else use Windows Explorer to examine your documents folder and also look at program files (while signed on as Administrator) and see if Word is there.

Is your documents folder there and what's in it?

Are your Word docs there?

Hi Professional,

I just had a similar problem with Office....I couldn't access any Office programs. Kept
telling me they needed to be installed......I all but uninstalled Office ...... On about my fourth run
of all my anti-everything in SAFE MODE, CW Shredder found "CWS.Msconfig" and removed it ....
Everything came back.... You might try that its worth a shot,,,, Remember to run it 3 or 4 times

Hope it helps

After running CW Shredder as above I suggest you download Hijack This and post a HJT log following the instructions on the links:

Please read the pinned post in our “HijackThis” forum, here
Carefully read and follow all directions explicitly.

Following instructions, run a HJT log and post it in our HJT forum, at this link.

Do not as yet attempt to fix anything by yourself using Hijack This.

A member of our HJT Team will analyze your log, make recommendations and offer assistance.

It may take a short period of time to get a response to the log you posted because the members of our HJT Team are kept very busy.
Please be patient as this team is manned by volunteers. They will help you as soon as possible.

NOTE
Once you have posted your HJT log, please DO NOT make any additional posts in the HJT thread in which you posted your log until you get a response from a member of our HJT expert team.

The first criteria they have when looking for logs that need replies are posts showing 0 replies. If you make an additional post, it will show as having 1 reply.

A team member, looking to see if a reply has been made might well assume another HJT Team member is already assisting you and might not open the thread to respond.

So, make your post and wait for a response from a team member.

Your documents will not be within the Word program but usually something like C/documents and settings/"your user name"/My Documents

Use the search function - start/search/for files or folders

and search for *.doc

See what it finds and in what folders it finds them.

Thanks, C/documents and settings/"your user name"/My Documents approch failed but after searching via Search I found my saved Documents but not the .txt files or Notepad files it just removed the txt files. Quite Odd. Maybe just maybe somehow the settings changed and told XP to not show the Text Files on Windows Explorer or My Computer? Is that possible?
