On Jan 13 pschommer posted a message about Office applicatons closing down right after they are opened. I am having the same problem with office 2000 pro on my laptop. I check all the KB's at Microsoft, and tried each of the fixes. In frustration, I fdisked the machine, reformatted the hard drive, and did a complete reinstall of the OS (win 98se), all the drivers, etc. I then used an fresh, unopened, brand new copy of Office 2000 pro SR-1 and did a complete install, both disks. Guess what, same thing! I have a legit license, and have 80 other computers running Office 2000 with no problems. Any ideas out there?

Thanks
