Registry problem with 'Word 2000'

Im trying to help a friend. His copy of Word stopped working. The program loads ok but immediately fails with the following: 'required registry info is missing and this application cannot run. Please rerun setup to correct this problem' I have, several times! I've uninstalled the office suite (all other products, Excel etc work ok,) and reinstalled but to no avail. I've copied Windows back in to 'paper over the cracks' but this did not work either. On the last boot, FindFast would not start either. I do not mind hacking the registry if someone can tell me where to look and what to do. Help!!

Not an answer, but maybe a clue at click here

He hasn't by chance run an Office SP update, on a copy of of Office registered as a Corporate version?

Or does the CD key start "GC6J3......"?

What version Word?

What Operating system?

Is this a legal copy of Word?
