    The attached is a screen shot of PowerPoint. My problem is with the "Slide Layout" sidebar menu on the right side of the screen: none of the options for slide layout or design, or templates or anything at all show up? I have also had the same problem with other supplementary menus for other office applications not showing up properly. For instance, in excel, when i go to the Insert menu, and select Object, the menu that comes up is completely blank.
    The problem is that all of the option are actually in the menu and can be clicked on, however it is a process of trial and error to pick the right option.
    Do you know what is going on? Do you know why the menu options are not showing up. I downloaded Sp3 for office 2002, is there something else I need to download to fix this?

    No. How do I uninstall one part of MS Office Xp? I assume that i won't have a problem reinstalling that one part of it.
    ps. I like your avatar.

    In PowerPoint Click on View > Toolbars > and make sure that Task Pane has a check mark beside it.

    I don't have a problem with the task pane showing up, it's the contents of the task pane that don't show up, so there is no way to tell what i am clicking on. Check out the attached screenshot from previously in this thread. That is what my "Slide Layout" task pane looks like--the options are there, just not visible, what the heck is causing that?

    Put your Office CD in just like you would if you are going to install it. If I remember correctly once the CD picks up an Office Installation it will give you an option to do a repair install.
