    after that i found i was getting installer error messages whenever i tried to open any office program(excel/word/pp).

    I know that there are some issues with the windowsinstaller in regard to Office XP Service pak 1 or higher .Did you do an update without first updating the installer I think to ver 2 .
    what is you O/S ?
