Word 2010 keeps crashing

E-mail Print PDF

Found this gem...

Every since MS$ has started publishing Fix-it links I think these are great...

I have used several of these gems especially the migrate NK2 from Outlook 2007 to 2010. Works better than copying the NK2 to make Outlook 2010 autoload on first startup. Now I found one to fix the Word keeps crashing issue...

Outlook 2010 - Migrate Autocomplete Settings

Outlook 2010 - Migrate Autocomplete Settings 

Original article was copied and is on the above site...

Problem: Before Outlook 2010 we could simply migrate autocomplete entries by locating and moving the clients nk2 file.

But Outlook 2010 did away with the .nk2 autocomplete file.










The autocomplete/autosuggest file remembers your previously typed email addresses.

The good news is that you can still migrate the settings, only now you need to migrate a .dat file instead.

Migrate Outlook 2003 User Settings

E-mail Print PDF

Can This Work???

<webadmin> I copied this from another site and do not know if this works or not. With the current environment I am in the import/export is disabled and we do not use PST files - we use OST. So managing these user settings has been a bit of an issue with our Win7 migration using Office2010. We are in a very mixed environment with some XP users on Office2003 and Office2007 and moving to Office 2010.  

I will work on this and update once I have tried this on a few users....


I've been looking everywhere for days to find out how to do exactly what you describe - move Outlook accounts from one computer to another, or to simply back up email accounts. Versions of Outlook preceding 2002 had a feature built in for this, but beginning with 2002 there is no feature. Plus it appears that Microsoft has mercilessly hidden its means of storing Outlook accounts from anyone who might be trying to find them.

Unblock Outlook Attachments

Unblock Outlook Attachments


Outlook 2003, Outlook 2002 and Outlook 2000 SP3 (but not Outlook 98 or earlier Outlook 2000 versions) allow the user to use a registry key to open up access to blocked attachments. (Always make a backup before editing the registry.) To use this key:

Run Regedit, and go to this key:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\10.0\Outlook\Security (change 10.0 to 9.0 for Outlook 2000 SP3 or to 11.0 for Outlook 2003)

Under that key, add a new string value named Level1Remove. For the value for Level1Remove, enter a semicolon-delimited list of file extensions. For example, entering this:


Close Outlook and restart, a reboot is not needed...

Just remember that you have opened up this security lockdown and that you can now open any attachments that you declare within this registry value...

Good Luck...
