    For some unknown reason, most of my main Microsoft software is popping up with problems the moment i start them up.
    The programs that don't work for me are Internet Exporer 6 (at the moment im using Netscape), Word XP, and all other office xp software..which is real annoying cause now i can't even check my email.

    I don't know if i have installed something that might of started this up.
    I have tried reinstalling & repairing Office xp (numerous times), as well as reinstalling XP itself ! I'm thinking it's somehitng to do with an untouchable system file... what do i do?!

    the system file which seems to be corrupted with IE is called 'msctf.dll' located in the system32 folder. it's a 'server' dll file... can anyone help?

    Try reformating your harddrive, and reinstall xp again
