Office Word 2003/2007 mouse hourglassing (blinking)

My buddy with the gmail account problems in Outlook 2007 said today that the Word’s behavior is odd and the mouse cursor is switching fast between edit vertical line (text select) and the hour glass.

Investigating and applying different solutions including complete reinstall, rename Normal.dot or delete Data and Options sections from registry, uninstalling using revo uninstaller didn’t fixed the problem.

So, I went back to forums and after half an hour of reading I have found that the default printer may cause this problem.

Setting (the) other printer as default one or uninstalling it fixed the problem.

Now I have to find other/better drivers because each time when he will need to print something from Word he will need to select another printer.

Of course OpenOffice has no problems at all 🙂
