    OK...For some reason, when I start Outlook (Office XP with Windows XP running) now, a prompt pops up saying the voice recognition is not installed and asks if I want to install it. This just started yesterday and for no apparent reason. I did nothing to cause it. Can anyone tell me how to get id of the damned thing? I dont want voice recognition and never asked for it, but Office seems like it has a mind of its own...can anyone shed some light on this problem?
