Uninstall Office 2008 and reinstall Office 2004

I recently installed Office 2008 and I'm extremely displeased by the slow operating speed of the applications.

Is there a way to reinstall Office 2004 without losing my email and user data?

Thank you!

Your mail is in your Microsoft User Data folder and not in the application
folder. You would need to export as Entourage archive under File --> Export
to move your data back to Entourage 2004.

You can just leave Office 2008 installed and wait for the SR-1 update. Just
be aware that you should install 2004 first. Entourage 2008 moves fonts to a
different location disabling the older 2004 fonts. If you install 2004 AFTER
2004 it will just reinstall them. When you go back to Office 2008, you will
need to rectify this problem.

Outlook can not find servers after updating office xp
I updated office xp with the service pack 3. Now outlook does not work. It can not find the servers on any of my email accounts. Everything worked fine prior to installing the patch. What change took place with Outlook to make it not find the servers? This is my work PC, and I need to get outlook operational. I need to either 1) fix the problem or 2) figure out how to completely remove office and the update so that I can reinstall office. Thank you in advance. What sort of accounts do you have? What version of Windows are you running? If Windows XP, did you also just apply SP-1? -- J...

Office STILL won't launch on G5
A month has passed since my original posting to this forum, and I've been searching other forums and Web sites for additional advice. I've read many helpful suggestions, but nothing has worked to get the Office apps to launch on my G5. I'm now running Panther OS 10.3.1. To recap, none of the Office apps will launch on my new dual 2ghz G5. I uninstalled (not just trashed) the "test drive" version of Office that came with the computer. I've tried installing the Office apps by both copying the folder off the CD and using the installer. I've run all the updaters u...

Login Failure Following Reinstall
I had a hard drive failure a couple of weeks ago, and after reinstalling Money 2004 and restoring my documents (thank goodness for the external HDD backup!), I'm having trouble logging into Money.

Tells me "The sign-in attempt for <<my passport>> was unsuccessful. Please try your sign-in name and password again." I know I'm entering my password correctly, since I use it routinely in Hotmail.

Outlook 2000 Reinstall
My Outlook 2000, running on XP Home, is behaving strangely. A few times a day it will give me the mail delivery error at the bottom of the screen. It will still send mail, but it won't receive until I click "Send and Receive" and then stop that process and then click Send and Recieve again. Do you think I need to reinstall OL 2000 (I have the disk) and if so may I do so without first uninstalling OL 2000. And would there be any need to reinstall other components of Office 2000? Thanks.

System crashed -Reload of Windows left out office
I have had a version of Microsoft office since 1994, the most recent version being Money 2000. I utilize this program every day to track my current and future financial info. When the system crashed I reloaded Windows 98, however, something must be wrong with my CD drive as it kept stopping, at various lengths, and saying Void-Retry- and something else in DOS (which I never did understand. My financial information is still in my favorites, as I save the info each day. When i try to open Money I receive a message, as follows: "This applicationm can not identify the end user identif...

Stop office from scanning network drives in disconnected state
I know that unmapping the network drives when disconnected is the MS solution for solving the problem with office apps opening files slowly off network (KB313937). But i don't remember having any users complain about this until a month or so ago. We have been using Office 2007 in a domain environment for several years and this issue has never occurred until recently (like that last month or so). Is there a group policy setting or Office setting that will prevent office from waiting for a disconnected drive to time out? We map drives using group policy preferences and it w...

I am not able to import my hotmail account or send messages and would like guidance on how I can get this set up. I am using a cable connection, thanks for the help!

MS Money 2004, XP SP2
Since installing SP2 on XP, when I go to my banks web site and import transactions (one-way, via the web), Windows requires me to "save" the .qif file to disk.

Adding Child Support as an expense
I've found out that Money 2004 has "Child Support Received" listed as an available income, but I am unable to find something like "Child Support Paid" in the expenses. The closest I've found, is Child Care. Does anyone have any "How-To" or "Where It Is" advice for this? You can always create your own expense account.

"Out of Office" message
Is there a way to make the "Out of Office" message stay on the screen longer?

With previous versions of Outlook, the "Out of Office" message was displayed until you responded to it - too bad that was changed for Outlook 2007 Thanks Al It's actually on the screen all the time in 2007, just in the lower right hand corner where no one looks.

CHECKDB loop SQL 2008

Office 2004 and the spinning beachball when saving, opening or attaching docs, xls, emails, etc? Anyone else have this problem?
I was wondering if anyone else is experiencing hang-ups while trying to save, open, attach a file. This seems to happen when we are on our OS X.2 server. However, today it happened while someone was trying to attach a desktop file in Entourage. The normal experience is that you click on the triangle so you can see all your different file options and somewhere in navigating the files you get the colored beach ball that does not stop or after a while you get a notice that the office program has crashed and would you like to report your problem to apple or reopen your file. If you reopen the ...
