    I'm new here but have been attempting to solve bizarre XP problems for days now. What I'd like to do is "repair" office (especially the errors I'm getting in Outlook) but when I put my Office XP CD in (it doesn't autorun...but that's always the case)...I can't get it to perform the set up. It freezes up completely. In fact, I don't think I can install any software at the moment.

    I've scanned for viruses using Symantec -- but it comes up with nothing.

    Any help would be greatly appreciate.

    To change how your computer handles multimedia content
    Open My Computer.
    Right-click the CD-ROM drive, and then click Properties.
    On the AutoPlay tab,choose the multimedia content type you want to change from the dropdown list.
    Under Actions, click the action you want Windows to perform when it detects the media type you selected.

    Also, any thoughts on why the Office XP install freezes completely??
