Every sicne i re-installed windows XP (hdd crashed) and reinstalled ms office 2003 I've been having serious issues loading up ms word/access/excel/publisher/powerpoint. I am able to start them all fine (except ms word which i have to delete the Normal template or rename it to Normal.dot) that I got from this thread. Now I have a new problem, whever It loads up, any document i save cannot be re-opened. Even previous documents I've had fail to load and on the bottom of the tab it says "Running Virus Scan, however I used mcaffee and i read on MS website that mcaffe can sometimes cause this so i uninstalled it and tried norton instead but it does the same thing. Word/access/and the rest of the office suite just freezes. I've tried installing all teh latest updates avilable @ ms website, also tried reinstalling office 2003 multiple times only to have the same problem happen over and over. And some wierd issue with outlook 2003 when i update it from ms ALL my email accounts cant connect to the server anymore. Anyone have any ideas on what i could try as any help in an effort to fix this problem would be much appreciated. ms website really is so confusing i've been searching around for a good 2hrs and i cant figure out how to fix this thing.
