    I recently installed office for mac 08 and after i installed it prompted me to do 2 critical updates (12.1.1, 12.2 or whatever) After the updates successfully installed I tried running any of the programs (word, excel, powerpoint or entourage) and they will just bounce as if they are going to run then the office setup assistant will open and ask me if i want to participate in some survey. Next it will open the Microsoft updater and no updates will be found of course. Then nothing happens. What is going wrong here? How can I fix this?

    Thanks,

    Scott

    If you search the forums for office and plist there are loads of links on how to do it. I would paste a link but alas I'm on my iPhone so can't LOL!!
