  1. Word Keeps Not Responding


    Hello, I have a co-worker who's MS Word keeps not responding when using spell check. It happens on any word file. The task manager seems to show the hard drive at 2% when word does not respond but CPU and RAM looks fine. They are server files.

    Specs: 64 bit Win 10, 8 gig ram, Office 365 for business 2005

    Windows is up to date, ran word in safe mode with no add-ins, disabled graphics hardware acceleration, ran quick and full office repair, ran dism and sfc /scan now and nothing found, disabled ESET(anti-virus), tried disconnecting from server drives and re-mounting, deleted the Word Data registry subkey and restarted the PC, word is up to date, optimized for compatibility and best appearance, ran word in "winword /a"

    When the user is away I will make sure her GPU is up to date, do a clean boot then uninstall Office365. Any other suggestions? Not sure what else is left lol

    :)

    Windows Updated(16299.309).KB4088776 Restart is required to complete.

    Hi dalchina. Good news, I followed your suggestion and reinstalled the update and now it appears as "installed correctly" *Biggrin Maybe it was not necessary to run the Windows Update Troubleshooter or maybe if necessary. But using it I do not think it could have worsened something. The installation was very fast, unlike the first time it showed step 1 and step 2 completed.

    Thanks for the suggestions and for the time to respond Word Keeps Not Responding :) Best regards.


    And thanks for the tip of that program, I'll have it on my list.
