On a Windows 7 computer with Office 2010, every time the user starts MS Word I get a window that says "Configuration Process" and then it take about a minute before it finishes loading Word.  A repair did not work nor did uninstall/reinstall.

Hello,

in Windows XP you can manually set this registry key:

HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Office\14.0\Word\Options /v NoReReg /t REG_DWORD /d 1

The easiest way to do that is to run this command in the Start > Run box

reg add HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Office\14.0\Word\Options /v NoReReg /t REG_DWORD /d 1

I'm not sure where it is in Windows 7, but is possibly similar.

cheers, teylyn

Yep, the Microsoft site lists the same registry path for Windows 7.
