Specs: Windows XP
Greetings, I have installed Office 2007 on a WinXP both programs fully service packed and patched. The problem is the only application in the office suite that will open is WORD. Excel, Outlook, etc exhibit the working-hourglass for around 15 seconds when you double-click the icon, then nothing happens. HOWEVER, when I pring up the taks manager both are running processes.

Please help.

Thanks in Advance.

Greetings Mike,

thanks for your help with this; much appreciated.

We ran the Dignostic and it found 1 error and fixed 1 error. Unfortunately this did not fix the problem.

It Turns out the problem was we upgraded HDGUARD from V7 to V8. When we reverted back to the previous version, Office Worked again.

Thank you,
