Please click on Start->All Programs->Accessories, then right-click on Command Prompt and click on Run as administrator.

A black window will open.

Type in it

sfc /scannow

press enter and when it has completed, type in

chkdsk /r

Press enter.

It will give a message "the type of the file system is NTFS cannot lock current drive.

chkdsk cannot run because the volume is in use by another process. Would you like to schedule this volume to be checked the next time the system restarts y/n" Say Y, press enter and restart the computer.

Please note, while this normally only takes 10 minutes to run, it can take at times number of hours if windows encounters many issues. If this is occurring it is critical to let this complete as it means you have corruption on the hard drive that it needs to fix. Even if it looks like the scan is not progressing, it is, please just let it run to completion. Windows will then start when it has.

Then tell me if it now saves correctly please

Thank you

It ran completely this time. Word 13 still fails with same messages after Save.
Customer reply replied 6 months ago
It ran completely this time. Word 13 still fails with same messages after Save. Office 2013 Pro will not Repair. Issues message "Office.en-us\OfficeMUI.msi not found" and if pointing to the install DVD, message is "Invalid"
Tech Support Specialist: Richard, Computer Specialist replied 6 months ago

Thanks

Can you go to start, control panel.

Then click on uninstall a program.

Click on Office, then change, then repair.

Choose online repair, let this complete and when it has, tell me how word then functions please.

Ask Your Own Computer Question
Customer reply replied 6 months ago
Repair does not work either from the DVD or via Control Panel. They both want to find a directory or folder where "Office.en-us\OfficeMUI.msi" and others are to be found. Only Word is failing.
Tech Support Specialist: Richard, Computer Specialist replied 6 months ago

ok, then you will need to run the re installation again, reinstall it again please like you did when you initially installed it.

https://www.dropbox.com/s/1xjciqqkfp3iq1p/Screenshot%202017-05-16%2011.24.51.png?dl=0I think that the registry needs to be purged of all Office 2013 entries. What do you think?
Tech Support Specialist: Richard, Computer Specialist replied 6 months ago

based on that error, yes.

Download revouninstaller from www.revouninstaller.com

Open it and uninstall Office within this, important you choose advance and remove (delete) all registry entries and files it locates when it does searches.

Then restart and try to install office please

I have downloaded and installed Revouninstaller Free. I will try it tomorrow and report.

I have your response to Revouninstall Office 13. I will do this at some time but not now. I need Excel to work while doing jobs. If the uninstall and a reinstall fails, it will be a nightmare to recover. I'll also have to clean the registry after the uninstall and defrag it.
Tech Support Specialist: Richard, Computer Specialist replied 6 months ago

ok, Ill mark this question to remain open so If you have continued problems, or would like any additional information or assistance, please do not hesitate to let me know.

And if you can take a second to rate my service for now by clicking one of the stars at the top of the screen then submit, that would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you

It looks like the problem is with Windows Explorer. When running most programs, WE seems to try to access folders and crashes. With Navigation enabled to show Computer, right clicking on a drive causes WE to crash. So, any idea how to fix this? If fixed, I would try Word again.
Tech Support Specialist: Richard, Computer Specialist replied 5 months ago

When did this problem start?

Tech Support Specialist: Richard, Computer Specialist replied 5 months ago

Please let me know

Customer reply replied 5 months ago
It was perhaps about a month ago and curiously around after the monthly Microsoft updates. There were Office 13, Win7 and Distribution Runtime updates. Oddly, only Word and Windows Explorer right click are affected.
Tech Support Specialist: Richard, Computer Specialist replied 5 months ago

Thanks

Can you close all programs

Click start, type in

system restore

press enter and follow the online steps to restor from a restore date before this problem started.

Tell me if the problem still continues please

Ask Your Own Computer Question
Customer reply replied 5 months ago
Cannot do a Restore that works due to too many saved restore points. New programs were installed and Registry was cleaned. Looks like there is no easy solution.
Tech Support Specialist: Richard, Computer Specialist replied 5 months ago

ok, then you are left with performing a reinstallation of windows.

First, backup any data you have stored on it (programs you will need to install again)

Once done, tell me the make and model of the computer please.

I am very happy with my very fast response. Eric is very knowledgeable in the subject area. Thank you!

RPAustin, TX

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
