My bad. Forgot to say I already had uninstalled and re-installed the Office 2000. The error is repeated. Grrrr!

Why not quit Office 2000? M$ is sharpening the knife to cut off all support for Office 2000 this coming July.

How do I get the equivalent of a Shortcut Bar which has the Desktop displayed across the width of the 22" monitor with a Write Msg icon at the complete right? The msg icon is very important for my legally blind wife so she can access email writing using her very minimal peripheral vision that remains from MD.
Also have gotten in habit of having desktop icons available when Firefox/IE browsers displayed.
And am too old (78) to want to change!! LOL (I even keep IE6 because 7 and 8 are pigpens IMHO).
Thanks for suggestion. Guess I'll try not to access the Shortcut bar except for opening items; that seems to function OK.

Will take a look. Never thought about her site (and she has so much there when/if I do remember it takes me forever to locate the wanted item altho the categorizing has helped). Have found helpful items in the past.
I'll shut up unless there is success, altho I can live with the current arrangement except for being unable to make Shortcut changes.
Thanks again.

Followup. Took a look and note Kelly's repair is for Win XP Shortcut Bar as opposed to Office 2000. My search continues unless there is assurance Kelly's fix also is applicable to the Office 2000 bar.

Understand Office 2000 was the last version to have the Shortcut Bar. Also since it was provided 'free' by then provider Gateway (have had a Dell since 2004) and I have little use for components other than the bar and the Word segment am not inclined to spend money.
Bar displayed across monitor top with all desktop icons is most convenient and really don't want to change. Want everything neat and organized and not spread out on the monitor screen.
Appreciate suggestion but am too cheap!! Also figure there must be a fix somewhere.

Hm.. Well if you insist then let's try other options. Have tried to system restore?

No, but can't get away with that. Auto update had taken the unwanted IE8 browser (have since amended the auto download aspect) and that precipitated a lengthy mess to get rid of it using MS Support for IE8 which is free until Dec 2009. They dumped me on IE7 and only a nasty email reply from me prompted a new call and a regression to IE6. Since then the odd problems with the Shortcut bar and extraneous/duplicate Favorite items have been painful.
Anyway, had tried a couple times in the IE8 battle to System Restore on supposed valid points and the restore would not take. Soooo, am left with only invalid Restore points that will encompass either IE8/7 or the Shortcut Bar problem.
Will learn to live with the situation and as long as I don't try to make substantive Shortcut Bar changes it will work for my wife.
Sorry for the length but felt an explanation was necessary. I am happy with IE6 (I mostly use Firefox anyway) and want nothing to do with the so-called 'improvements' of subsequent browsers. Too old to change I guess.
Thanks for the suggestions.

Well as long as you are contended then. You might fix this problem by reformat but not that recommending it yet so up to you to decide if you want to.

I've concluded I'll just live with the situation. Reformat is toostrong just for this item and is beyond my tech capabilities also.
Had hoped there was a simple fix and appreciate assists given. Thanks

Well if you can access directly to the Programs and File folder there might be a way. Are you using XP?

Yes have Win XP Home SP3 access thru Programs/MS Items/Shortcut Toolbar and use that everytime the bar disappears following the error message.
Am open to suggestions that would assist my wife if she gets in a bind and I'm not available immediately.
Thanks in advance.

Not sure what you mean by 'the new shorcut' but have put a Toolbar icon on the Quick Launch and placed it next to the Start button (use the Classic Start and display setup) for easy access by my wife. Think that will work as a substitute until "Some Day" when the component error solution is found.
Thanks

Well if it runs by that then it'll be good alternative. What I'm trying to say "new shortcut" is have you try to replace the short cut on the start button?
