I am using Windows XP SP2. Now, when I open Microsoft Word, my computer goes, as normal, to a window labelled Document. However, a small window then opens saying Windows Installer is preparing to install. Which led me to believe I had uninstalled something vital to the Windows program. However, the computer goes on to say, "Microsoft Word has not been installed for the current user." I am wondering whether the problem is not that I have uninstalled something vital but that, in altering my user accounts as I have done, I have somehow lost my access to Microsoft Windows.
What I did to my accounts was set up a dummy Administrator and then set myself up with 2 accounts - one with full administrator privileges and one with limited privileges for Internet access. Is it possible that in doing this I have somehow become shut out of Microsoft Word? If so, how do I fix this? Or how do I check this if this is what is the problem?
I am glad that you don't say "RTFM" in this discussion forum!
