For many days i had this problem.Whenever i paste any words in Microsoft Office Word 2003......a Popup comes saying :

Please wait while Windows configures Microsoft Office Professional Edition 2003

and then it pastes.It is annoying.Each time when i paste,it comes. msiexec.exe runs in the process.I disabled it in services.Then no problem in pasting.I installed a software later,then it asked for windows installer as it is needed.Then once again i enabled it.

So i wanted to stop that popup from coming without disabling msiexec.exe. But that is not possible.Also in control panel, The options - change or remove is not there for Microsoft Office Word 2003. It is like that for many days.I dont know how they disappeared.I dont know what problem it is.

In Microsoft Office Word 2003 under Help option, when i click Detect and Repair....It says Microsoft Office Professional Edition 2003 setup failed

Today i uninstalled Microsoft Office Professional Edition 2003 and reinstalled. Now the problem is too worse.
Now whenever i open Microsoft Office Word 2003 or Yahoo messenger or MSN messenger, that same old popup comes :

Please wait while Windows configures Microsoft Office Professional Edition 2003

Eventhough i cancel that popup, OSE.exe and msiexec.exe runs in the process. So each time i have to end the process OSE.exe and msiexec.exe when i use Microsoft Office Word 2003 or Yahoo messenger or MSN messenger.Its very annoying. :thumbsup:

Can anyone help ?

This assumes that your system is not infected.

Caution is advised - at your own risk.

As it involves a registry edit, backup up your registry first with a program such as

ERUNT:

and you may also want to create a system restore point.

See this link:

Some applications in Add/Remove Programs list are missing Change and Remove buttons:

http://www.winxptutor.com/arpbuttons.htm

The two mentioned items, NoRemove and NoModify, have to be set to 0, not 1.

This should fix the Change and Remove buttons in Add /Remove.

I have only ever fixed the "Please wait while Windows configures Microsoft Office Professional Edition 2003"
message, by uninstalling and reinstalling the whole package from a genuine Office disk.

pro11.msi [Microsoft Office Professional Edition 2003] is the .msi installer file required.

I also ensured that I went to Windows Update afterwards and got them all.

Defrag your disk before reinstalling.

Use the latest version of the Windows Installer:

http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details...;displaylang=en

Windows XP Service Pack 3 (SP3) is worth getting, if not already installed.

NOTE:

OSE.exe is a process belonging to the Microsoft Office Suite which adds additional installation support
during CD install and web updates. This program is important for the stable and secure running of your computer
and should not be terminated.

MSIEXEC.exe belongs to the Windows Installer Component and is used to install new programs
that use Windows Installer package files (MSI). This program is important for the stable and secure running
of your computer and should not be terminated.

On a general note: from the command line or the recovery console:

chkdsk /r - checks your disk, repairs errors, locates bad sectors, and recovers readable information.

sfc /scannow - checks your system files, (replaces any corrupted and damaged files, but may ask for XP disk).

I too, would be interested in any other helpful suggestions.
