Office Keeps Trying To Install Itself On My Computer (Windows XP)

Discussion in 'Computer Support' started by Ninth Commandment, Jan 18, 2005.

  1. Windows XP keeps sending a pop up saying it needs to be installed on
    my computer. When I cancel it I get another pop up that says Microsoft
    Explorer failed to redirect. I cancel it then Explorer does what I
    want.

    Any advice to get rid of these things.

    Do you have one of those 60 day trial versions of Office that came
    preinstalled? If so dumping it may solve the problem.

    Sadly, no pun in ten did.
