    When I installed Microsoft Office 2003 I ran into some problems and so I
    used the "System Restore" hoping to get back to before the installation.
    Well in doing this some how I messed something up and when I try to up date
    Office 2003
    I get an error message about the installer missing. Everytime I open
    Outlook 2003 I get a window that Window Installer is preparing to Install
    and
    it keeps popping up. Is there a way to repair this/install the missing
    file???
    Help I am at my wits end in trying to solve this situation.

    First try giving it the Office cd and let it copy the files that it needs.
    If that does not work then go to add/remove programs, select office and
    choose repair.
