Microsoft® Office Diagnostics
Microsoft® Office Diagnostics runs tests on your computer that can help you to discover any problems encountered while using the Microsoft® Office package and also recommends solutions for this. The program also compiles information and keeps it on your computer. The tool also asks you to send the information about your error to Microsoft®, and usually it is useful to do so. Any information exchanged with Microsoft® is completely anonymous and no personal information is be sent.
Individual diagnostic tests
When you run Microsoft® Office Diagnostics, you will run all the required tests. However, this might not be the best solution, and you can run single tests based on the kind of problem that you have. The Setup Diagnostic checks for corruption in the files and registry, and detects malicious viruses or faulty installation issues. Take some time for this, as a single test might last for 15 minutes. Try to log off from the system for better performances, and have the Diagnosis CD handy as the test program might ask for it. It is also recommended to run the Disk Diagnosis from time to time, as this program looks for evidence of problems with your hard disk that could influence the functioning of your Microsoft® Office 2010 package. Memory Diagnostic and Update Diagnostic might also be useful as they detect outdated and expired licensed software. However, one of the most important tests that can be run is Compatibility Diagnostic. This program makes sure that you have the correct drivers installed on your computer, so you won’t get driver conflicts and program crashes.
