Try running Windows update.

There are a number of 'bugs' in XP that are corrected by updates from Microsoft.

After completing Windows Update, run an Office Update.

Backup your files and do a clean install of XP. Then reload all your apps. I avoid upgrades at all cost.

I agree with answer 1, use microsoft web site and update your OS, then on thier home page there is a link at the top for office updates too. difficult to help without knowing what the error messages say etc. formatting your HD and installing XP from scratch is a good idea too.
