Autocorrection list error message in Word2000

Hi Experts, I have a problem that is killing me. I have Word2000 installe in my WIn98 laptop. The problem is that while I am working with word, a recurrent message appear onscreen telling me that Word cant use the autocorrection lists since they are not installed. It asks me if I want to install them, but I do not have the installation disk with me. So I tell the machine not to do it. But a few seconds later, the same annoying message pops up. I tried to disable the feature in the Tools menu to no avail. Any idea of how to do it (maybe on reg edit)

Autocorrection is part of Word.... we can disable it, we cannot uninstall it..... when u will open word, it will access autocorrection also as it accesses other features, and when it will find that autocorrection is damaged, it will ask u to insert the cd so that it can correct it !!

even if u will goto registry, u will find the option of Disabling autocorrection, but not uninstalling it.... its integrated in WORD... and whenever u will access word.... u will have to access this feature, and its somwhow got corrupted or damaged, u need to repair it !!

u want to disable that popup which asks u to repair it.... well i dont think so u can it =\
only way is..... grab a office cd from somwhere, and insert it when it pops up the question,,, let it do what it wants to do for once and it will not bug u again :)

choice is urs.... Good Luck =)

You may also try renaming all instances of normal.dot found on the problem machine.  Otherwise, you can try deleting the registry key or other suggestions found here:
