- Close all background programs
- Check the compatibility
- Complete uninstallation of previous versions
Close all background programs
Before installing Office 2010, it is better to close all the background programs such as antivirus programs, webcams etc. Otherwise they will make some sort of problems and this might lead to system crash.
Check the compatibility
Compatibility checking is the next factor you need to consider before installation. If you upgrade from the 2007 edition, you might not have any problems. But if you upgrade from Office 2003, that might have some incompatibility with the operating system. So, before installing Office 2010, you must ensure the compatibility with the operating system.
If the system had any previous versions and you have uninstalled those programs improperly or that they are not completely removed from the system, a conflict might occur between these two versions. This conflict might start from small errors and lead to system crash. So, completely remove the previous versions from the system before installing Office 2010.
