    I have been trying to install MS Office 2003 and also Adobe reader, and
    the install for office just hangs and give a error something like
    install has quit in a unusal way or something to that effect. Also when
    installing Adobe a error message box keeps coming with installer
    errors. I went to the Microsoft site and downloaded 2.0. then 3.0
    installer. It accomplished nothing.

    Anyone have a clue about this one ?

    Thanks

    Ed

    Two things I would try

    1. The Microsoft cleanup utility
    http://download.microsoft.com/download/e/9/d/e9d80355-7ab4-45b8-80e8-983a48d
    5e1bd/msicuu2.exe

    2. Delete all temp files in your temp dir
