Microsoft Office 2007 Clip art disappeared

When I run Office 2007 Publisher, I use alot of clip art in my publications.  My clip art that used to show up has disappeared.  All the clip art that is built into Publisher doesn't show up.  It only shows local pictures or from items that I have already done.  Any suggestions on how to get it back would be apprecaited.

Have you tried the repair option under help?  My guess is that there is a directory setting someone on the dialog that pops up when you select Clip Art and you changed the directory or it wasn't available when you opened it and so it defaulted to my pictures and you just need to select the correct directory again...

I ran the repair tool and also ran the Diagnostics as well.  I thought it resolved the issue but it has reverted back to the same problem.  Where would I set the default path to look for all clip art that is available in Publisher?  Any ideas?

I'm going to install publisher and look at it, I'm using Office 2010 right now.

You need to check the search in and make sure they are all highlighted...

I checked to make sure that all the selections are checked.  It only draws from other completed Publisher documents and pictures from My Documents.  I did verify that the clip art file did exist and all the clip art is in the file but from Publisher I can't seem to connect the two.

Then uninstall publisher, reboot, and install it again, make sure to select customizations and make sure you select 'Run All from my computer'

I recently did an upgrade instlall from Office 2003 to 2007.  I will uninstall completely and reinstall with the Run all from my computer and cross my fingers.

That should work.  I have seen a lot of complications going between the two versions, it's a nightmare if you try to install office 2003 over office 2007, luckily your going in the path Microsoft plans for - from office 2003 to office 2007 and not the other way around.
