"Normal.dot" is a template file that contains default settings such as
custom styles, custom toolbars, macros, and AutoText entries. Some
viruses, such as Melissa and AutoClose infect this file. If I'm not
mistaken, "normal.dot" normally does not get written to the drive except
when changes to the preferences (to the template, actually) are made, or
when the system is infected with one of these types of viruses.
wine manually and using winesetup... I also installed MS Office 2000
and was able
to launch the MS WORD, EXCEL and POWERPPOINT apps. My problem here
is when i close the WORD application i would get a pop-up box with the
"The Disk is full or too many files are open.
This happens all the time, thus i could not save my work, everytime i
a file this happens. Has anyone experience this, any recommended
explanations or links regrading this problem would be appreciated.
So the first thing I would do would be to shut down all of Word and
rename "normal.dot" (a new one will be created automagically when you
restart Word). See if that makes a difference.
Another thing to look at is to see if wherever "normal.dot" is
read/writable for your user. Assuming the file is not infected, and the
file is being written as part of the normal course of events for Word,
this could be your issue.
