    Have uninstalled and reinstalled and this seemed to fix problem at first but a week later and the problem has started again.

    Have tried the fix it for me options from support, no joy

    Problem still occurs when holding ctrl during opening (safemode?)

    No other versions of office installed on pc

    Automatic updates are on (most recent important update for microsoft works couldnt install as dont have discs requested - Security Update for Microsoft Works 9 (KB2754670)

    Have no idea what to try next  please help!!

  • Hello Ballet,

    This happens if Office finds (residues of) other versions of Office. Before going into detail, please follow these  instructions:

    (remove the space after http: MS refuses to acknowledge my verified email address)

    This cure is to add a key "NoReReg" to the relevant version of your Office product.

    Did it fix the problem?

  • Hello George

    Unfortunately not and I ran all the commands for all the listed programmes.

    What more can I do?

    Do I need to find the residues and remove them - I wouldn't know where to look!

    Could Microsoft Works be causing a conflict? Should I remove that?

    Do I need to uninstall the whole suite again and re-install doing something different than the "recommended" options?

    I really appreciate your help and input

    Many thanks
