I was having annoying repeated error msgs on my PC and in frustration uninstalled then reinstalled the entire thing. Fortunately i still have all my old files but now i can't open word / excel / and applications as it is "not installed for the current user" Can anyone help?

What you have done is deleted the start menu folders for Office for particular users of you Windows XP Computer. You will have to go into your C drive documents and settings, the user that has the links to Office that is in the start menu, you then cut these and browse to the documents and settings off all users and the paste these office links into that start menu. By doing this you are enabling links to office for all the users on your PC and any other accounts you make instead of the user that installed it having the links.

Hope that helps
