    Thanks in advance.

    Error Box - This patch package can not be opened. Verify that the patch package exists and you have access to it, or contact Windows to verify this is a valid Windows installer package.

    Put the Office 2003 CD in your CD Drive, if it doesn't start, run setup.exe, when the install wizard appears,
    click the last option on the bottom of the screen, "uninstall":)
