    what a fucking piss poor excuse for a program. its slow, its crap, and the dicks have tried to make it look like mac.

    whats more, its bloody impossible to try and recover the parts of your assignment that youve just been working on when the piece of shit program decides to freeze.

    why the hell did my crappy uni install it?

    mad mad mad.

    :grrrrr:

    yeah thats shit Gumbo

    I hate being forced to use certain stuff, our company has locked everyone's Explorer Homepage to the company intranet, which shits me when I need to use certain web-based applications that only function well in Explorer. Good thing I use Firefox for most apps.

    but hey, why should you care ? hmmmmmmmmmmmmm ...??!?!?!?!??!?!



    :cry:

    The first thing you do when you start using an Office program is to switch on autosave with an every minute setting, preferably with the back-up not going to a network disk (network faults cause 99% of my crashes).

    When you start Office back again you'll have a recovery option. At most, you'll lose 59 seconds of work.

    I'm using Office 2007 on my PC here at work but it's a very quick computer so it doesn't run slow at all! That said, I never use it ha!

    It looks insanely different to previous versions though.

    the layout is so different to the old versions. it makes it harder to use. ive seen people at uni have to get the IT guys just to show them how to print o_O (i was smart enough to find that function thank god.)

    Its hidden somewhere in the options. I don't have 2007 so I can't tell you but it is definitely there somewhere.

    Make sure you're not adding very big graphic files, compress them before adding. Big graphic files will crash Word a lot - especially if you're comp is not up to current spec.

    It looks like you're having a rant. Would you like me to:

    +Crash your running programs
    +Lose all your work
    +Completely break down and force you to reinstall
