Hi,

I/m using Office XP and everytime I open up the program I get a window saying " Preparing to Install" and it takes a little bit of time for Word to come up.

This has happened to me before and I remembered that the way to fix it is to unistall and reinstall Office.

Any ideas on some other way to fix this?

Probably your application is installing additional software such as spelling check, Thesaurus, fonts etc ...
Try to find out what is loading and determine if all this stuff is necessary ?

You got it Stanza !!

The prob usually comes from when you first install .

One of the options in the drop down boxes in the custom install (the arrow next to each Office module) says something like 'install on first use'. If you select this option intentionally or by accident each time you run something new in Office itll ask for the CD to be installed. Prob seems to be that Offices memory aint so good and is it doesnt always seem to remember what its installed before so it repeats the question on restart!!

Best way to get around this on first install if to choose to install everything from all the modules you want to install.

/regards
