My Office XP Pro has become corrupt, unstable and non-functional for all intents and purposes. I seemingly cannot repair, re-install or uninstall Office XP Pro from my system; nothing I try works. Each time I attempt to do one of these procedures, the same thing happens: A window pops up saying it is gathering information, the status bar gets about a third of the way and the procudure halts, giving the following message: "The I/O operation has been aborted because of either a thread exit or application request".

Please help if you can. I have 36 hours (from 2:30 CST, 6/20/04) to get this problem fixed before I leave the state for three weeks. The computer is critical to my wife's school work. I will monitor this thread as much as I can within that time to provide any other information needed to anyone who may be able to help.

Have you tried installing another office suite say 2000 1997 1995 or 2003?
it might be able to repair it all then you could uninstall it and then install your office XP Pro.

just a suggestion.
