I've just loaded Office Professional 2003 (updating from Office XP) and have
downloaded the SP2 update pack, but both Excel 2003 and Word 2003 lock up on
start-up. It may have something to do with eirther the Virus scanner
(Norton's Antivirus 2005 but probably unlikely) or the fact that MS Office
Updates won't work as I suspect some of the earlier Windows Installer Patch
files may be missing or corrupted from the XP version. I also couldn't
uninstall Office XP in the normal manner from Install/Remove programs.

Would appreciate any suggestions on how to resolve this. (Note that
PowerPoint 2003 does start and operates OK).
