A friend of mine recently defragmented his hard drive.Since then everytime he has tried to use Office XP he has got the following error message:
Invalid Access to memory location.
The same error message appears when he tries to use CD Creator.

All other applications seem to work properly.

He is using Windows XP and Office XP.

He has reinstalled Office XP, but the error still persists.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.
