Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. I've had a few problems with Word taking forever to close, it keeps saying it wants to save the Template and takes 15 minutes + to close, same after sending a message through Outlook.

    Someone mentioned that it could be Microsoft Works in conflict, would Removing Microsoft Works affect any other programmes as I use Microsoft Office is there any real need for Works?

    Not if you have Office, no. Just check that Office can open any works files you may have left before you nuke it though...

    msr
     
  3. Use the Microsoft solution (reboot ;) )
     
  4. Cheers msr...

    I'm not sure if I have ever used Works but you never know!
     
  5. Have you thought about using OpenOffice it has a similar layout is free, I have never had a problem with it and it opens all Office docs as well.
     
  6. Every time I have bought a computer I have removed Works because I use Office. I've never had a problem.
     
  7. While on the Microsoft subject, what's all this Microsoft Visual C++ about? can we Mag to Grid that as well?
