Perhaps a System Restore will fix things.

A restore back to W7 and O2K10!

This is like the 2nd or 3rd time in the past couple of months patch Tuesday  has whacked everything up.

In http:#a39649193 I posted "Perhaps a System Restore will fix things"

In the next post ( http:#a39649526 ) pgm554 posted "A restore back to W7 and 02K10!"  
And in http:#a39652297 pgm554 posted "W7 and Ol2k13 works fine."

It certainly sounds like a System Restore was the solution.

The system restore on Windows 8.1 did not fix the problem,so a system restore in the classic M$ (non)sense was not the solution.

Starting from scratch is not a system restore,it's starting from scratch.

So far what worked was just to install Office 2K13 and do not patch office.

If you install the patches (doesn't matter the OS),it will break IMAP.

With the original system (W8.1) I tried doing a system restore using the built in roll back feature,but that did not work.

I have a case open with M$,but to be honest ,they've haven't a clue and I'm the one stuck having to go through each patch one by one and see what it is.

I am now getting you have activated office too many times with your key as I try to uninstall and reinstall the patches and office.

I've got an M$ MVP involved (Susan Bradly) and she thinks the fix might be a patch due in December.

I'm just frustrated that I am doing all the work and the folks at M$ are charging me with a service call on my contract.
