Office keeps re-configuring


Office annoyingly keeps re-configuring every time you open it.


1. Open a notepad file

2. Enter the following lines of dos commands:

reg add HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Office\11.0\Word\Options /v NoReReg /t REG_DWORD /d 1
reg add HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Office\12.0\Word\Options /v NoReReg /t REG_DWORD /d 1
reg add HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Office\14.0\Word\Options /v NoReReg /t REG_DWORD /d 1
reg add HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Office\15.0\Word\Options /v NoReReg /t REG_DWORD /d 1

3. Save the file as configwin.bat

4. Then find where you saved the file and then double-click on it. It will prompt for confirmations to overwrite registry values, just input Y and press enter till end. Everything should work fine afterwards.

This remedy sets registry keys that prevent winword from configuring everytime. You may want to back-up your registry first if not sure that your problem fits this case.
