I'm running XP SP3 w/ MS Office 2007.
I usually launch the thesaurus by using the shift-F7 command. However, no matter what the word, the answer I get is "No results found. Please search again."
I have tried other suggestions including:
**Go to control panel > Add or remove programs > select Microsoft Office 2007 > Change > Add or remove features, then click continue > click on Office Shared features > Proofing tools > English proofing tools > Remove all the cross marks shown in RED > Continue > wait until the configuration process completes then restart your system
**I ran diagnostics for Office, but I got a message that "The drive is not ready for use; its door may be open. Please check drive (a then a long string of gibberish) and make sure that a disk is inserted and that the drive door is closed." I check my CD drive and found it was closed and no disc was in it. I tried again several times but each time got a similar message. I then hit continue and the diagnostics ran. I did see that it found no problems with my hard drive. Again, I can't i.d. the drive this message is eluding to as all it is is gibberish, mostly questions marks.
I just finished a long process with another bleeping computer member who was trying to fix a slowing computer. After the thesaurus problem arose, we ran a program that ruled out anything he did that would have caused this. And I can't say for sure that it stopped working while we ran different programs as I don't use the thesaurus that often.
Any help is appreciated.
