Microsoft Windows XP Professional

Including myself there are three users on my computer, When trying to open any of my word documents, Excel,
Front page etc. the following window appears "PLEASE WAIT WHILE WINDOWS CONFIGURES MICRO XP PROFESSIONAL FRONT PAGE. Second window appears ERROR 1311 SOURCE FILE NOT FOUND D:\office\cab verify that file exist and you can access it.

I am able to bypass these two windows and create a document, however I will not be able to re-open it or any other existing documents/excel etc... The other two users on my computer are not experiencing this problem, with that said I deleted my profile and created a new one, only to find out I am still having the same two windows appear, and no access to my documents etc... Windows XP Professional was originally installed under my sign on. PLEASE HELP

have you tried

In reply to: Microsoft Windows XP Professional

inserting the original MSOffice installation cd on your cdrom drive before opening any office programs. Do this and then open front page (or word, or excel). the same message would appear but Windows should automatically reconfigure or reinstall any files missing from your system. hope this helps.
