Repairing After Installation

If you find that an update file or accessory doesn’t work correctly after you’ve installed it, you can repair the file from the Add Or Remove Programs dialog box by following these steps:

  1. Click Start, and then choose Control Panel.

  2. Click Add Or Remove Programs and select the program or utility that isn’t working properly.

  3. Beneath the program name, select Click Here For Support Information.

  4. In the Support Info box, shown below, click Repair. Windows Installer starts and reinstalls the program, hopefully correcting the problem.

    Tip

    I mentioned this earlier in the book, so I’ll just add a reminder here: If your version of Office XP begins to act strangely—that is, taking a long time to update the screen, operating slowly, inserting unwanted characters at odd places—it could be that a file the program needs has been damaged. Office XP includes a utility that will fix that for you automatically. To repair the problem, choose Detect And Repair. In the Detect And Repair dialog box, choose whether you want to restore your shortcuts or return the computer to its default settings. Click Start to have Office XP search for problems and repair the files.
