Detect & Repair

Two related but separate questions actually:
I have had occasion to use the "Detect & Repair" feature (from Word) to fix
a problem where Outlook 2000 refuses to start after trying from either an
icon or command line start. (The last time it happened was after I changed
the resolution setting in Control Panel/Display.

1. When I run Detect & Repair it asks my to put in my Office 2000 Small
Business CD, why do I have to do this? Can't that info be installed onto my
hard drive?

2. This process must be done every couple of months (for various reasons)
to "revive" Outlook when it doesn't want to start. Any idea why this is
happening?

Thanks in advance... Bob

@1)
Probably some files are damaged at it needs to copy the
original ones which are located on the CD.

@2)
Could be various of reasons depending on what you are
doing with Outlook :-S. Make sure you run the latest
servicepacks and hotfixes on your system for both office
and your OS.

1. What would I need to reinstall for detect & repair to work? Surely I
don't have to do all of office.
