You should have it installed in my opinion. (Meaning you should install
I take it from your response you do not have the original installation media
for your computer and/or for Word XP (2002)?
Tried getting the stand-alone installer?
Office XP Service Pack 3 (SP3)
Released way back on 3/30/2004. What I suggest is that you download from
the above link the "OfficeXpSp3-kb832671-fullfile-enu.exe" file and save it
to your desktop. (57.5MB - not 16MB!) Try running it.
(It states, on that page, "OfficeXpSp3-kb832671-fullfile-enu.exe: Download
this file if you do not have access to your installation source...")
