    Strange issue

    Wow. The hunting Office story, sounds like a thriller novel in the making! ::evil:: After you remove Office 04, have you tried to restart the computer? How did you upgrade to Leopard? For example, upgrade, or archive ? I believe I read, awhile back, Office 2008 removal tool had trouble...

    ibook g4 14' freezes at blue screen

    First, if you have installed anything on your own, like memory, make sure it is firmly in place. Second, when you put the install disc in and boot, hold down the C key until you know the computer is booting up on the CD and not the HD. Hopefully this will get you to the install screens from...

You can delete the file called "normal," with the Word icon. Restart MS Word and it should create another normal template "default"...

    You can try to reboot the Mac holding down the X key while booting. If that does not work, you can hold down the option-command-shift-delete keys at start-up as well, this will allow you to select the start-up volume you want to boot into.

    WMV, MOV, and UNIX files

    You do not need Quicktime Pro. You have associated these videos files with Quicktime-Via Flip4Mac. On my computer, WMV files have the Quicktime icons, perhaps go over the steps again, and do a restart, or a least a log-out-log-in, and see what happens.

    Entourage 2008 issue

This will rebuild the database, it may or may not solve your problem though. The other alternative is to delete the Entourage Identity files, located in the...
