    Office sp2 has just about shot my system to bits and it does not come with an un-install function.... I'm just waiting for the official XP Pro SP1 1106 or whatever, then a rebuild and leave office sp2 on the shelf where it belongs. Just ms using us for guinee pigs again.

    I have sp2 installed and it works perfect. What is the error you get?

    I've heard of this problem being caused on illegit copies of Office XP ...
    Are you using a licenced version of it cabmustang?

    This is error is caused by you not using a legit version of Office xp. So to solve the problem go to a store and buy a legit copy...

    I find that a little hard to believe. A frking 9 year old can generally tell a pirated piece of software from an original. Are you really that stupid...or were you just hoping to bullsh*t the clueless people out there?

    Lets give 'your friend' the benefit of the doubt here.
    Lets assume he is incredibly rich and generous and wants to buy fully licenced copies of very expensive Windows OS and Applications and then give them away.

    Please could I have their name and put in an order for MSDN Universal edition.

    Thanks.
    ;)

    I used to have problems with EasyCD Creator (came bundled with the burner), so I switched to Nero, and its been working flawlessly.
    You could try updating your ASPI drivers too.

    i have nero also, but i'm having problems with it, i'm trying to burn a data cd but its saying the wrong "medium" is in the drive, but its the right medium. i'v tried quite a few different discs but it still doesn't work. any ideas on how to fix this?

    i don't know if this matters, but i also have XPsp1 installed, and thats when nero stopped working. just thought i'd mention it in case thats what it is.

    If he bought it...he would know. I'm really thinking you are an idiot so I'll give you the benefit of the doubt.
