    I was using Office 2007 for a period of time and then stopped for a couple of months. Now when I go to use any of the office applications like Word I get a popup saying that MS Office is being configured. Halfway through I get the message: Error 1907. Could not register font. Verify that you have sufficient permissions to install fonts and that the system supports this font. Don't understand because Word was operable so there should be no font problem and I am the administrator and sole user of this machine. Anyone know how to fix this???

    It is possible that a dll file or some other critical component is missing. I may help to reinstall the software and key. That would be the easiest fix. It may have been deleted accidentally with some spyware or adware / antivirus program or even manually (human error, hey it happens). Try the reinstall and I am sure that will solve the issue. Other wise contact the microsoft website. I have been using Word 2007 for about two months now and have not had any such issues.

    I'm sure that a reinstall will fix the problem. On the other hand, I can use everything normally in Safe Mode and no reconfiguration window appears when Word is opened. I'd like to find out what's causing the problem when I don't use safe mode. There's obviously a conflict occurring somewhere. Anyone know what Safe Mode turns off??

    It turns of all non essential dlls. Only the files used in startup and system files are loaded that will allow you to potentially fix a problem. Fonts would be non essential as only one or two basic fonts would be loaded. It seems a little odd though that you would be able to run Word in safe mode. Do you have access to all fonts in safe mode?

    Hi,
    Thanks all for your responses. My problem has been solved but I'd like to make some comments. As for the last response from RrK-e-Typ, I'm wondering if I've confused the issue. It sounds like you're thinking that I'm opening Windows in Safe Mode. I apologize for not being more specific. I'm not using Windows Safe Mode, I'm opening the Office applications in Safe Mode. So I'm using Word Safe Mode or PowerPoint Safe Mode and the programs open normally. And I've tried various operations in those programs and all seems well. For example, all of the font is available. I thought I'd post in case I was lucky enough to find someone that had an immediate solution. What I should have done initially, and what solved my problem, was running Office Diagnostic Mode from the Start menu. I just did that and it found one error which it corrected thus solving the problem. Thanks again everyone.
