Insufficient memory or disk space, cannot display the requested font; Outlook fonts garbled
After I've been using Word and Outlook for a while, I receive the following message: there is insufficient memory or disk space. Word cannot display the requested font. Once I get this error message, my fonts are garbled in both Word and Outlook.
I am running Windows Vista 64-bit Home Premium, with Office 2007. I have 4 GB RAM, with settings set on automatic (Windows detects).
I am not a power user. I have Googled and searched Microsoft help, to no avail.
My brand new computer is becoming almost unusable! Please help.

There are a couple of things that can cause this. One is a corrupted normal.dot template, one is a corrupted printer driver, and the other would be some sort of third part add in. So let's start witht he simplest to try and that is replacing the normal.dot
Click on Start, go to Search, and in the Search box type normal.dot. There should be a search option that you can check for 'search hidden files', make sure that is checked. If it does not find it, try searching for *.dot. It may be hard to find because
it is a hidden file. You may have to go into folder options and be sure "show hidden files" is checked. Whenever you find normal.dot, rename it old.dot and restart your computer. Open Word and it will create a new normal.dot template, which is what Word
uses as a default blank document.
