automatically locate and delete normal.dot

Posted under MS Office by ifoundafix

The other day I Found A Fix for a recent problem I was having. The issue is described as follows;

Everytime I try to locate and delete NORMAL.DOT, it takes far too long and when there are various user profiles this makes it even more difficult.

Here’s a simple command prompt which will automatically locate and delete all NORMAL.DOT files on your computer.

1. Open a command prompt. Start, Run, type CMD and hit enter.

2. In the black dos prompt, type   cmd /c “c: & cd c:\docume~1 & del normal.dot /s”  and hit enter.

3. This will delete all entries of NORMAL.DOT which will then be automatically recreated by MS OFFICE.

I hope you too have found a fix!
