Opening WORD 2002 --- keeps "installing"

    When I open WORD 2002, it keeps saying: Windows Installer, Preparing to
    Install. It then takes about 30 seconds before opening.

    Subsequent openings of WORD are very quick. But, if the computer is shut off
    and then turned back on, once again I have the same problem.

    This is part of the WORKS SUITE.

    Any ideas??

  2. Try uninstalling the Microsoft Works Suite Add-in for Word.

    well i've had this problem before, what you would do is
    just that once you shut your computer down and turned it
    off, then start word again, what you need to do is make
    sure you have the works suite cd in your cd-rom before
    you start word again, and it should install whatever it
    needs to install and you won't see that pop up again...
