Googled setupconsumerc2rolw.exe and found a few stashed copies ... but I don't trust stashed copies! If the source is the program publisher, that's fine ... even if it's 'buried' on a FTP server.

The alternatives are probably better anyway, Office Online seems to be a viable 'upgrade' path.

Thank you. I have already checked out Office Online and it looks OK to me. Along with Starter to-go, I am much better placed than I was yesterday.

Best regards,
You're welcome, I see where it might have been confusing.

I'm not sure that AutoRuns will be useful in your case. I was working off an incorrect assumption (happens to all of us) and thought the Office Starter was an entry in msconfig or in the Run key of the registry. After tilting my head and researching Office Starter, it became apparent that I was perhaps chasing a non-existing issue.

It's funny actually, I wrote a post almost identical to DavidE's post, but he types faster, so I deleted my 'duplicate' post about AutoRuns.

It won't hurt to have AutoRuns - it's small. I also don't want to second guess DavidE, he might have some ideas I dismissed. We'll see what David wants to do with AutoRuns when you get it downloaded.

Yes, I'll get back here when I download Autoruns. As you say, It would be interesting and educational to see what DavidE has in mind for me.

I also mistakenly thought Office Starter started up automatically from what I read in post#1, and that's why I suggested AutoRuns.
If it doesn't automatically start when Windows starts, there is no need to look in AutoRuns for it.

It's up to Melita if AutoRuns should be kept on the PC or not.
Either of these downloads are Portable / Standalone programs, so nothing gets installed.

I download the whole Sysinternals Suite so I have everything, even though I don't use most of the tools.

I found this on the Sysinternals page

Sysinternals Live is a service that enables you to execute Sysinternals tools directly from the Web without hunting for and manually downloading them. Simply enter a tool's Sysinternals Live path into Windows Explorer or a command prompt as http://live.sysinternals.com/<toolname> or \\live.sysinternals.com\tools\<toolname>.You can view the entire Sysinternals Live tools directory in a browser at http://live.sysinternals.com.

I've been playing with this a few minutes and haven't got it to run from the Web.
