Help ! Office 2003 apps crash computer

  Minkey1 13:07 13 Jan 05

Hi all

I have XP SP2 with NIS 2004. Too much time on my hands yesterday, installed Steganos Security Suite 7, MS AntiSpyware beta and ran it, XP and Office updates, ran Spybot and Adaware, set restore points before everything.

Now I found opening any Office app (2003 S &T edition) crashes the computer. All yesterdays installations removed and several restore points tried but makes no diff. Event Viewer after the crash mentions "TraceFileName parameter not located in registry". I suspect I've managed to delete some vital Registry entry.

I can remove and reinstal Office but is there a way to save emails and contacts first without actually opening Outlook ?

Any suggestions would be gratefully received !
