    I have a Windows 2000 (SP3) computer that had Office 2000 installed on it.
    I uninstalled that program and installed Office XP.
    Then, a while later, that was uninstalled and Office 2003 was installed.

    Now I seem to have 4 problems:

    1) The "Outlook" Icon that normally appears when you install Office shows up but not with the "outlook logo" rather with the windows logo that appears when it doesn't understand a file extension. If you click on it, Outlook 2003 does open.

    2) While in Outlook, if you try to reply to or create email with the "use Word" checked off, it will tell you that
    "Microsoft Word is set to be your e-mail editor. However, Word is unavailable, not listed, or is not the same version as Outlook. The Outlook e-mail editor will be used instead. Can't find this file. Make sure the path and file name are correct."

    3) Sometimes when you open Word it just says "installing" and nothing happens. Sometimes it opens.

    4) When I try to double click on .doc files they will not open in Word. However, if I have Word open and say FILE>>OPEN and choose the file, they open.
