My department is running into an odd Microsoft Office issue. Whenever we start Word or Excel and select a font, it flashes for a second and then goes away. We've checked updates and everything and it all looks good. What can we do?

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

You may want to try the repair tool for Office. You can find instructions here at the Support Office link.

    Is there any good anti virus installed? If yes, just update that one and run for a scan. Secondly, Also reboot the system in safe mode and open word/ excel and check if that happens again. You can uninstall the part of word/ excel and reinstall the same and check if that happens again.

    What version of Office and what font are you selecting? Are you selecting the font in a blank document or one that already contains text?
