    Nagging Office 2000 CD requests XP SP3

    Hi All,
    Recently this problem started up again and I forgot how I fixed it last time. (getting old?) When I open certain emails in windows live, xp goes looking for my office 2k CD. Says I need to insert the CD. Anyone have any ideas how this happened and how to get rid of it? I don't know where the CD is right now.
    Thanks.

    Which version of Windows are you using? XP?
    Which version of Office? 2000?

    Thanks for letting me know. Be sure to back things up. Microsoft no longer supports either Office 2000 nor Windows XP.
    Happy New Year!

    IIRC, Microsoft is supporting XP SP3 until April 2014, however Office 2000 is a dozen years old and it would be best to update it.
