Everytime I try to load MS Word XP, a message prompts that Microsoft Office is being installed with Frontpage. I just cancel it and it loads MS Word, but this has become extremely annoying. Does anyone know the cause and/or the solution?

Something has gotten lost, a missing file or something. It's attempting to repair it. Just let it finish, you may need your CD though.

I install it though my friends external HD, and he has the same problem even though he has the setup file.

Maybe you can use online update to fix it? One other lateral thought is that it is just possible there's a service you can disable to stop this from MSConfig - not at all sure about that though... but you could experiment if nothing else is viable for you.

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.
