Word 2000 & Data1.msi

September 7, 2009 at 15:17:02
Specs: Windows XP pro, P3/512
when i try to use google or yahoo maps,
grey box instantly pops up
"windows installer - preparing to install' 'please wait while windows configures microsoft word''
then 'microsoft word - the feature you are trying to use is on a cd-rom. insert the word 2000 disk and click ok'

it seems to be looking for Data1.msi

i don't have my original disk.
if i click cancel 2 or 3 times, it all goes away and everything works fine.

the problem just appeared from nowhere about a week ago and seems to occur only when i try to use either of those 2 map sites. can't trace it to anything that i did. have been using this pc for years with word 2000 and never a problem.
no recent installs or changes

any ideas?

don't have original cd because that was 9 years ago and i got word 2000 from buying microsoft works. after so many years without any problems, i just threw away the original works box and cds a few years ago. never thought that i'd need it again. now i know better, save everything.

i more interested in why this happened and why problem only seems at the google and yahoo map web sites.
