If I start word, excell or most ms products, it says 'windows installer' starts, if I close windows installer quick it shuts and excell etc works ok ?

Try running the Microsoft Office CD, which will recognise that Office is already installed and give you the option to *REPAIR* the installation.

I put the disk in that I loaded it from originally, but it wont accept it, it just says insert the disk and press enter, odd

If you have more than one CD/DVD drive in the PC, are you using the one that Office was originally installed from?

I'm using the one and only one I have.

What happens if you just leave it when the 'Windows Installer' comes up? Does it install anything?
