    I have been trying to uninstall my programs as part of a clean-up job on my HD. However, I could not uninstall Office XP properly. (I kept getting a message similar to the one below) So, I ruthlessly (stupidly perhaps) simply deleted all the OXP folders and files I could find.
    Although that got rid of it, now I cannot reinstall it.
    I keep getting a message which says:
    "This patch package cannot be opened. Verify that the patch exsists and you can access it or contact the application vendor to verify this is a valid Windows Installer package"

    I have checked w/ MS support and tried all of the fixes they reccomend--none work.
