OFFICE update then register

  menorcarob2 14:18 20 Feb 2003

after many problems i reformatted and reloaded XP pro and office 2000 i then went to MS UPDATES and installed all nessasary updates now when i open progam in office 2000, say word it asks me do i wish to register, if i say no it closes word, if i say yes i get this error message:
" THE REGISTARTION WIZARD CANNOT RUN BECAUSE THE SYSTEM INFORMATION IT REQUIRES IS EITHER UNAVAILABLE OR INCORECT " what on earth makes a program that i bought and had no obligation to register now with the update i have to register? is this big brother MS " not collecting any personal information about me or my computer!" or is there a less sinister answer.

I guess that recap was showing you how to phone MS to register
