Outlook 2003 - Ruined entire system


S

SOX FAN

Just bought new PC.

Everything is Microsoft.

XP Home - Microsoft Works (came installed) - User like to use MSN for
e-mail, Sent Microsoft $300.00 to activate Office that came installed on
machine.

Word will not allow MSN to be the e-mail client. System crashed and burned
after activation of Office. Outlook 2003 seems a little unstable.


Why would a new PC with Works, Office Express and Outlook 2003 be shipped?
All these programs do the same thing and they don't seem to talk with each
other well.

On top of this all she wants to do is use Word and send the document through
MSN nor Outlook.


There MUST be a better way. $2,100 PC fully loaded with ALL MSFT software
and it crashes and burns. It had to go back. MSFT could not help over the
phone.

Then why pay for Office, when Works and outlook express would have sufficed?
The crash could just as easily be hw related

They don't.

They do on many computers. On mine, for example.

Personally, I think that after getting a new PC that has a lot of
factory-installed software, it may be beneficial to reformat the disk and
install from scratch only what you need, starting with the operating system.
There is a much better chance of applications playing nicely together that
way and it will free up the significant amount of disk space taken up by all
the stuff you don't wish to use.
