    A fix that does not make sense


    My OS is Windows 10 and I have office 2007 installed which I’ve had for quite some time. Every now and then when I open MS Word it goes through the configuration process before it opens. It seems as there are a few different ways to fix it. One way was to go to Control Panel as thought you were going to uninstall it. You right click on the icon and you will get a choice to Uninstall or Change. I click on Change and then you get an option to “fix”. That has worked before but this time it did not. So I did a Google search and saw another way to fix it. Which was to go to Program Files x86\Common Files\Microsoft shared\office 12\Office setup controller and look for the file setup.exe and change the name. So I change it to setup. Old. It worked and fixed the problem. But this is what does not make sense. I assumed that when I restarted and open Word the file would be changed bake to setup.exe but it did not. The file is still setup.old and it still works. Does this make sense to anyone?

    gps does not make a fix

    and to be more precise I have just noted that the phone (gps chip) does see 7 or 8 satellites, but there is no signal strength (and yes I was outside with open sky above me)! No idea how to fix that. Anybody with a solution?

    gps does not make a fix

    Hy, I have a problem with getting a GPS fix. I have as far as I can see all the settings OK. In AGPS I do get a position on the map but not an GPS fix. Also I do see that the phone is looking for the satellites but it does not calculate a coordinate. Any
    Ideas how to fix this?
