thank you all
repair did not work either > nothing worked.
got so fed up
with that so went into outlook.sys and msoffice.sys file and debuged them.
it was to the grate surprised of mine
what i have discovered!!!
somehow MS Office installed on the computer were not activated with Microsoft
and used all of the 50 attempts it has for free-use
. then it's just switched into read-only mode!
checking with Help/activate showed activation were fine and everything were perfect, although the counter were counting down the use of the MS Outlook!
Tried to zero the counter in the sys file but did not work as there were counters elsewhere...
Decided just to wipe the [bleep] thing of the computer (entire MS office) and re-install the new version with proper activation.... Problem all solved. Checked the .sys and it's all okay.
Long-Live MS (
so somehow there were an installation bug in the first place that installed MS in 'trial-mode'
Thank you all andappreciate the efforts you provide in trying to solve my problem....
