MS Office fails to open properly

Since downloading office updates from the Microsoft web site i have been unable to open any of the programs in office with the exception of publisher.
If i select say 'WORD' it will come up on screen for between 5 & 10 seconds then exits, the same happens for Excel, access and powerpoint. If i am quick enough to select open doc then i am able to select a document which shows on screen then the program exits.
Any help would be much appreciated.

Try a Repair of Office from Control Panel > Add/Remove Programs. If you have XP, click on the Change button and choose Repair from the options you're offered.

Dont try a repair of office, it wont work!

What I respectfully suggest you do is to get another, licenced, copy of Office.

I have no doubt whatsoever that your copy has a CD key beginning with "GC6J3" and if so it is (as you may or may not know) pirate. The updates have triggered this as an anti piracy measure.

Dont beleive me? Do a google search on "GC6J3"

Good to know for future problems of this sort, Smiffy99, if indeed that is the problem.;-)
