broke Office
Outlook now says it can't find extend.dat and some other files, and I don't
have authorization to use Outlook. So I uninstalled 2007 Trial and
reinstalled 2003.

Same problem.

This upgrade has been a real disappointment and continual headaches. Does
anyone know how I can get Office working again?

Sorry for the crossposting but didn't know who'd have my answers.

Thanks.
John

RE: broke Office
Usually you can search for extend .dat, views.dat and outcmd.dat individually
and rename them to .old files. Then outlook will start functioning correct.

Not sure what this guy did though.
