|I’ve had a number of errors since I copy-pasted a functioning normal.dot file from Word 97 into my new Office 2003 on Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit. |
Most notably, whenever I leave full-screen mode the ‘close full screen’ button/bar freezes on top of Word and every other program (and on my wallpaper after minimizing all programs.) The only way to get rid of it, is to close Word completely every time I exit full-screen.
• I’ve ‘repaired’ Office 2003 using the installation DVD: No improvement.
• I’ve made a complete uninstall and then installed Office again: No improvement. (The entire templates folder survived this procedure.)
• I’ve deleted all files in the templates folder.
Now my Word 97 macros and customizations have gone, but some defective files must have survived everything. My ‘close full screen’-button still freezes. I get a pop-up saying that auto-save has been postponed every time it should save. In the ‘New document’ menu, Word writes that the last template I’ve opened is a template I haven’t used after I uninstalled and reinstalled Office. These are only impressions after working briefly in Word after the reinstall, there could be a hundred more bugs.
Can someone please help me? What files do I delete to get rid of all this misery ‘only’ by reinstalling Office – and not having to format my HDD?
