MS Office 2007 Hangs up when on-line

15 years ago

I installed MS Office Home/Student, downloaded all the updates and registered. Then began to test. When off-line, not connected to the Internet, Word, Power point and Excel all work as expected, albeit with user interfaces that are all different than Office 2003.

To the problem, if I go on-line to the Internet, just establish the connection, nothing more, and then I try to use Work, Power point, or Excel they all hang up, as if trying to access something over the web connection. The only way I can get Word, Power point, or Excel to shut down is to first disconnect from the Internet.

Is there some "option" or "feature" that is set that demands that something is retrieved from the Internet before the MS application will work?
