Whenever I try to open my Office 03 programs I now get this error.  I have uninstalled and reinstalled and still no good.  I can see my inbox behind the message but as soon as I click ok the whole program shuts down.  Please help!

Have seen similar issues before with corrupt profile. If the above info doesnt work, then try creating a new user acct on this system and give it admin access. Then logon with that new account and see if the problem remains.
