    office 2000 tries to load (winxp sp2)

    When I go to certain web sites, the office 2000 installer opens and tries to install. I have both Office 2000 Professional and Office XP Professional loaded.
    Any ideas why and how to stop?
    Thanks.

    Can you provide a link to a site at which this happens?

    Now running HP Pavilion a6528p, with Win7 64 Bit OS.

    Not much help, but I don't have Office 2000 and I went to that site and it loaded OK with XP.

    Long ago, there was a time when men cursed and beat on the ground with sticks. It was called witchcraft.
    Today it is called golf!

    That site seems so riddled with cookie demands and links to pop-ups I'd tread with caution - I'd guess you (inadvertently) clicked on some ad which triggered something like the attached.

    As a test, temporarily add that site to your Restricted Sites list. This usually will block scripts and ActiveX controls from running. If the Office 2000 prompt does not appear, then it is something "interactive" on the site that appears to be triggering it. You might want to tighten up your IE security settings for the Internet Zone.
