After reinstalling Windows Me and Office 2000 every time I try to access word/excel etc I get the following message "This application must be installed to run. Please run setup from the location where you originally installed the apllication." This comes up even though the application does initially open, but when I try to close the error message the apllication closes as well. Have reinstalled Office twice now from the CD.
Tried both the above, no joy. I think the problem is that in MSCONFIG Office is set to load in the startup section. When I uncheck it and reboot it still tries to load (I assume) and I get the error message (even with Office uninstalled). When I recheck MSCONFIG the Office box has "re ticked" itself during reboot. How can I permanently remove this line from the startup option without opening office to set preferences!! I seem to be chasing a big catch 22 around and I'm pulling my hair out! Any suggestions appreciated, thanks.
