    I'm having trouble making Word 2003 start properly when my wife logs on as a limited user, but not when I log on as admin. One help message suggested I run a program called gpedit.msc but it's not on my machine. I searched for gpedit.* in windows explorer search and came up empty.

    What is that file? Is it supposed to be on my computer? Is it on the MS Office 2003 CD, by any chance? I did a "typical" install of Office 2003 yesterday, not a "complete". Shuld I retry?

    Word works ok for my DW once it opens but that takes 2-3 minutes (I timed it) and you have to wait for a "windows installer" window to appear and disappear first, also.

    I guess first question is what OS do you have?

    One of the extremely powerful tool that come standard with Microsoft Windows XP PRO Operating System is called Group Policy Editor. Before I get into more details here the quick note on how to execute it:-
    Go to START-RUN and enter gpedit.msc

    Having just replied to your earlier message I now find you have posted THREE threads about this problem. You really should post only one in order to keep the subject matter together.
    If you post and don't get a reply, don't re-post but just reply to your original post as a "bump" i.e. it will bring your post to the top of the list so that maybe new viewers will see it and post a solution.
    Multiple posts about the same problem are really not good.

    I see from another post that you're running XP Home and gpedit does not exist on Home only on Pro.
