Memory Upgrade, Now can't access Outlook,Word

I am really stuck here. I recently installed more memory in my computer running XP Pro. After the install, I am now unable to use MS Word or Outlook. I get a screen that reads..."Miscrosoft Office XP Professional with FrontPage has detected a significant change in your machine configuration. For Microsoft Office XP Professional with FrontPage to continue functioning properly..." So I am asked to reactivate my product and insert the Microsoft Office XP Professional with FrontPage CD. MAJOR PROBLEM- My cousin built this computer and he installed the XP along with other software. He is now working outside the United States in tech services, AND I'M STUCK! Help, I can't use word or get to my email in outlook. Anyone???? Thanks a million.

Just go get the new version and install that.

I'd call Microsoft to ask them which package to buy.

Why does memory upgrade impact my OS?

Thanks. So I need to buy a new XP Pro? Is that the only fix? What is FrontPage anyway? Can't I just remove that program? I've never used it before and don't know why memory upgrade would impact my OS!

Not an OS issue.

The license for Office has TEETH. So it bit you. What you need is a new proper license for "Microsoft Office XP Professional with FrontPage" CD and your very own license.
