Some programs start but quickly shut down

Hi guys,

I am new to this forum and I have encountered this problem for the first time.

Several, but not all, of my programs start and then shutdown after about 3 seconds for no reason. They are not minimized, or off screen, they just shut down.

Anyone with any ideas and I would be grateful.....thanks Peter

It sound like those programs, what ever they are need to be run as a administrator. Right tick on the program and select Run as Administrator.

It would also be helpful to know what programs you are referring to.
Do you have admin privileges?

Do you have admin privileges? If you don't do you know who does?

How many user account are installed on this computer?

yes, I have privilges....and only one account on PC.....but Office programs don't even have the right click Run as ADministrator option. Other programs do have this right click option, but not Office.

Okay. How long has Office been on your computer and which Office is it.

Is their any other programs that act the same?

Please fill in your (My System Specs) This tutorial will help you. Also add to your specs your security programs you use and what power supply you use.

System Info - See Your System Specs

I'm asking all these question for a reason. The more information we have about your problem the better advice we can give.

I know very little about Windows 7 Office but if need be I will find a member that does.
