    Which Office?


    Two completely different situations I'm trying to resolve.

    1. An elderly couple share a desktop PC. They are seeking my advice on a replacement PC, that's straightforward. However I'm uncertain about Office.. They currently run Office 2003 on it. They use Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Outlook; may occasionally need Publisher. So Microsoft 365 would seem to be the way forward.
      • They each have their own Login. Does that represent 2 Users?
      • Is a Microsoft account required for each person to install or manage such an installation?
      • The couple also have 2 laptops which currently have their own Office installation, later version but I suspect in the future they may prefer to be able to bring Office on all PCs into line. Are there any further implications there?
    2. I have both a desktop & a laptop PC, both running Office 2010 Professional. Im the only user and use Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Outlook, and Publisher. Want to learn Access but havent got round to it yet. I dont have a Microsoft Account (do have an old style desktop Skype login but its not an email address). Clearly it seems Microsoft 365 Personal is the way forward. Around a total of 60 / year for up to date Office on 2 PCs seems like a good deal.
      • Do I need to have a Microsoft Account?

    Maybe Im unnecessarily concerned about Microsoft Accounts, its just that it seems more and more accounts are needed these days.

    :)

    That's what the auto setting will do since you're over the 1333 mark it jumps to the next step which isn't listed or officially supported I assume by that ram.

    At this point though I would suggest dropping the multi one step or .5 so that we can get something stable and possibly take the heat issue out of the picture for now.

    The tutorials provided are just a list of troubleshooting steps. Use only the steps which apply to you.

    Since none of the troubleshooting steps here worked, I'd suggest you do a Clean install.

    Which Office?

    Windows 10 1709 System Restore problems...

    That seems to be an attempt at Option 2 in the tutorial, which requires you to
    a. Boot to a command prompt (Did you?)
    b. You then seem to be mixing steps 3,4 and 5, thus your command is incorrect.

    I suggest Option 1 is easier.

    If you still have problems, please repost listing each specific step and saying which option from the tutorial you are using. Thanks.
