Have you Activated office on your PC? Many PC's have a trial version of Office installed, and to be able to use it fully, you need to license and register it.

There was a trial version of Office 2007 that I uninstalled prior to installing a full version Office 2003 Basic & yes I did activate it.

Are you running from an account that has Administrator privileges? Are you permitted to modify the registry? http://support.microsoft.com/kb/884202/en-us "You must accept the Office End User License Agreement every time that you start an Office program"

The computer is running Vista and there is only one user that also has administrator privileges.  I may try getting in thru F8 to see if I can access the administrator account before I go after the registry edits.  

I will have access to the computer tomorrow morning and I'll let you know.  Thanks.
