I downloaded this program onto my PC in no time. Infact the time elapsed was 5.5 mins. Please ignore HansUpp because i went through none of the effects he/she described. I am typing up my reports already on Microsoft Office 2003, obviously HansUpp has A. a RAR converter or B. Is a terrible liar and needs to stop =].

Office works fine, but the install reset all my folder views to "Icons". Points off for d***ing with that.

I installed this update on both my Vista computer and my XP computer without any problems.

HansUpp, like most Microsoft haters, I think you hope for problems with Microsoft software. Karma man. Karma.

Stay away, this has the Curse of Micro$haft on it.

After installation I can't access my documents and the resolution in MicroSnot kb articles only refers to modifying registry keys which don't even exist in WinXP.
Load of shïte I tell ye all

if your software is running just fine, don't mess it up with updates, after updates, etc and etc.

there has got to be a point in time that updates should end.

Amusing to me that MS is blocking it's own formats. MS should block ".doc" and ".xls" as well and get it over with. Watching the downfall of this company is also amusing.
