The problem sees to come from an earlier installation from Works or something else which the OfficeXP installation does not overwrite in the registry.

What has worked for some people is to Start - Run -Type regedit to open the registry, use the "find" function which finds a key referring to the "missing" file.

First exported the key, just in case, and then deleted it, reboot and the problem should begone. So long as you first export the key you could reimport it if the deletion caused problems with Office.

When you say Windows Programs, do you mean Office Programs? or Everything
