I am using Outlook 2007 with the rest of Office 2000 on Windows XP operating system. When I launch Outlook it gives this message: "Please wait while windows configures Microsoft Office 2000." If I click "cancel" several times the process will cease and Outlook 2007 launched successfully. Is there any way to remove this annoying process? Thanks!

I saw this once before and I cleared it by removing a windows installer reference in the registry, i know this is vague but if you are saavy with the registry its possible your Outlook 2007 registry location has a similar entry. Try to backup any keys before you delete them to prevent corrupting your system.

here are some articles that may help

Thanks! That is the direction that I wanted to explore. I have worked with the registry before, but just wasn't sure which key to change. Can I just remove the reference to an installation process ... or?
