Thank you Marty,

I have a feq questions on this:

- is there a difference between a user with admin rights and admin account 
in this respect?
in my case there is only one single user on this PC and this user has admin 

- I tried to open Msohelp.exe. doesnt open ?

- I have SP 1 and 2 on 97.
on XP I am still in the process of installing all upgrades. on the last 5 I 
have problems to download/install them.

I am going through the links now

thanks for your help
