Hi every one ! I am a Newbie I recently Purchased and installed "MS 2007 Student Version Not for Professional use" 3 months ago, I have Win XP Pro with Front page etc.

I have written to MS Office help 48hrs ago and no reply so here I go :thumbsup: .

My Comp was set to "Auto Update" MS, 5 Days ago I noticed it was downloading an
"MS update" which I allowed! Immediately after that I could not open a Word Doc, new word Doc, Internet Explorer without this coming Up!

Insert MS Off Front Page Pro disk Click Ok

I cannot as I have my original Win XP 2003 Disc but the Repairer installed Professional when my hard drive blew about 1 year ago ??

Then this!

The Path MS OFFICE cannot be found ETC, ETC,: Find the Application Process 'PROPLUS. MSI.


Error 1706. Setup Cannot Find Req Files. Check you Connection or CD Rom drive for ETC ETC see \Offic\Office10\1033\SETUP.HLP.

C:\Doc & Sett\Owner\My Docs\ANZ etc, etc,: Fatal Error during Installation.

This was the Doc I tried to open after the First Update Last Tuesday Aust Time!

The computer Freezes the curser is there and flashing but nothing happens
I cannot close the word Doc I tried to open and the other Pages as well they just all meld into the Doc Page as a big disjointed Mess Just like a Virus!

The only way to Fix this is to turn off the computer at the wall and restart then do a Restore Back to Before Tuesday or when the last update but as soon as it installs again I am right back where I began??

As the Comp is restarting on the Blue page I get This!

"Defrag V2.32"

and then!

Defraging Programm by Ivan Rumminoff or somthing like it.

I have Restored 5 times now so I just turned off MS Auto Update. I woner if anyone else has been driven Nut's :flowers: ??
I would be very gratfull if somene could assist me with this Thanks In anticipation Dasha

My solution would be to uninstall MS Office, reboot your computer.

Then reinstall the application-sometimes a reinstall will clear up problems.

To fix PROPLUS. MSI, you will need your Office installation disk:
Defrag V2.32 is a program by Sysinternals
