Microsoft Office

  1. My Office is messed up.
    I can't open a Word or Excel Doc unless I first open word or excel and them click on the open folder in the toolbar.

    If I try to open the doc without doing that, I just get a rapidly flashing windows installer dialogue box

    I can't find my Office disc or I'd just uninstall and reload.

    Any suggestions?

    Get rid of it and use openoffice 2.2 - will open and save word and excel files, looks almost the same and is legally free! Get it at

    Try this

    Right click a Word document and select or browse to Office.
    Set it to always.Do the same with Excel files.
