Does anyone else have experience with this software? It includes Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Publisher, Access, and Outlook. A couple of months ago I decided to upgrade from Office 2003 because I needed Access and the 2003 Office Suite I owned did not have it. The full Office 2007 Professional cost $460+ from CDW. Office 2003 used to run fine on my ordinary Windows XP Laptop, a Dell D620 with 2 GB memory. Then I made the mistake of installing Office 2007 and my computing life has been hell ever since. Both Word and Outlook crash at frequent, yet random, intervals. These crashes have cost me tons of wasted time recreating lost work. These programs now have me so paranoid that I save my work about every 30 seconds. When they are not crashing during work, they crash when I attempt to close the programs, offering to phone home to MS with mysterious error reports. All the software on my PC is up-to-date, including the one 3rd party add-in that I use with Office 2007, Acrobat Standard PDF Maker 8.1. Microsoft itself is zero help. After an email to them they called me from Bangalore, India, and said that we would have to uninstall the Office add-ins one by one until we found out which one was crashing Word. Then I would have to do the with same with another Microsoft guy that worked with Outlook. I said, look, I do not have time for that. Besides, I only have one 3rd party add-in, Acrobat, which cost $250, and has the Microsoft seal of approval. All other add-ins were dumped into Word and Outlook by your MS Office setup program and were in fact written by Microsoft itself. So forget it. I am not going to sit on the phone for God knows how long uninstalling up to 17 (!!) add-ins one by one until the problem is located. And even then the problem might not be the add-ins at all. The Microsoft refund department is supposed to be calling me in the near future (according to the MS support guy). Anyone else have this bloatware? What has been your experience? Even when it was not crashing I found Office 2007 to be ponderous and very slow, even compared to the far from speedy Office 2003. And the menu system!!?? Forget anything you think you knew about working with Word, Excel, or the rest. The new menu system returns you to beginner status. It is profoundly counter-intuitive and you know where nothing is located so it takes lots longer to get work accomplished. Office 2007 is bad software.
