    Amazon and ebay are, in my experience, the best places to find a good deal on Office.
    In the last two weeks, I found a retail 2007 pro for $275 at Amazon and a 2003 Pro for $80 on ebay. It helps if you first educate yourself a little on the version variety and licensing issues so you are not buying one thing and expecting something else.

    Yes I have MS Office xp Professional w/ Publisher version 2002 and MS will soon not support and I have been getting Fault messages at times opening Outlook. I absolutely hate outlook express and don't want to use it.... Thanks

    If you already have 2002 Pro, I'd stick with it...Sure as heck wouldn't upgrade it to a newer version and probably end up with the same problems.

    Have youu run repair and do you have ALL the updates for 2002?

    Thanks, I was kind of thinking the same thing...The software for Office is up to date. I will try a repair. I installed a new version of Spybot S&D and went to /tools/sysstartup and discovered two possible worms (besides the one behind the keyboard)

    Use CounterSpy as a second option over Spybot S&D before you execute any quarantine Spybot S&D feature.

    CounterSpy:
    http://www.sunbelt-software.com/Home.../Anti-Spyware/

    15 day fully functional.

    If CounterSpy doesn't find anything, then you probably haven't got an infection.

    Does your anti-virus program detect any infections?
