Not sure that that will help, though. A few months ago, I couldn't open Excel, and got the same message. I found and downloaded office1.cab, but then it wanted another file, which I couldn't find. In the end, I opened Excel in safe mode, through Run... it opened OK, and from then on the problem disappeared. I have tried opening Oultlook in safe mode, but it doesn't seem to have one. Also tried to download Office Service Pack 3, but all it told me was the installation was unsuccessful - no reason given.

You might find the office cab file on the Office CD's
XP CD will moan if you have added SP2 but removing SP2 is so damaging to the system it is best avoided
You can check the system files for XP by inserting the CD then click start then run then type sfc /scannow then press enter, you get a blue progress bar which goes off when complete

I've just run sfc /scannow - took about 20 minutes, but all seemed to run OK. Then I found I couldn't open Excel - same problem mentioned earlier, that I had months ago. Again, opening in safe mode worked and seemed to clear the problem (it opens normally now). tried Outlook in safe mode again - it opened, but hung up as soon as I clicked on the first message. I need to get at some of my old mail - this is driving me crazy.. any more suggestions?
