I have MS Office 2003 installed on my sons computer, but for the last couple of weeks when he either tries to start the app, or double clicks on a Word file it starts and then a message pops up saying "MS WORD IS NOT INSTALLED FOR THE CURRENT USER. PLEASE RUN SETUP." When you click OK the app closes.

I've tried uninstalling Office and reinstalling it, but no good. Any ideas?

Sounds like it could be more of a corrupt user profile problem

This is on my son's computer, so anything is possible. Thanks for the reply.
