especially the Word fix which is about half way down. 2003 needs to be
installed and updated first, with custom install and don't install Outlook
or uninstall it. Install 2007 using a custom install and tell the install
not to overwrite the older files. Use Outlook 2007 (if available) as it
seems like a better program than Outlook 2003.
When you get ready to do the registry fix for Word configuration delay, do
the fix for Office 2007 and then do the same thing substituting Office 11
for Office 12 in the instructions. You need to fix both versions of Word.
I have this fix on various versions of Word and have not had a problem but
the KB article states that there may be an issue.
