I cant use the control panel to add remove programs and uninstall.

I have tried putting cd back in cdrom drive and uninstall that way failed.
Cant do a repair.

What i need to know is what registry settings need "deleted/changed" to make the computer THINK that office is not installed, so I can "reinstall" it on top of its self to correct some issues.

Office 2003

   1. Insert the first disk of your Office CD set in the CD-ROM drive.

   2. From the Start menu or desktop, double-click My Computer.

   3. Right-click the icon for your CD-ROM drive, and then click Open.

   4. Double-click Files, and then double-click Pfiles.

   5. Double-click Msoffice. Then double-click Office11 (Office 2003) .

   6. Double-click Offcln.exe


Surely the above solution will resolve the issue.

I did those steps you posted.  After a reboot the INSTALLER came up with some sync error messges.
I stoped it and ran the same steps again and removed 2 more files.

I rebooted and the installer poped up again.. (try to install offcie)  I canceled the isntall.  Poped in the cd and ran setup.exe to intall from disk.

I get an error msg that says an installer is runing....

SO.. now we need to stop/get rid of the the isntaller the at is in the system.... so I can install it from cd and get it working.... any ideas?
