    I took advantage of the "special price" and upgraded from XP Home to
    XP Professional.'

    I am living to regret the decision. Amongst a host of other problems I
    needed to reinstall Office XP

    The installation has succeeded with Word, Excel, Powerpoint, Front
    Page and Outlook.

    Access gives this message:

    "Please wait while Windows configures Microsoft Office XP
    Professional"

    Then I get a progress bar:

    "Gathering required information"

    The bar goes full distance and then nothing,.

    Access is ten times more important to me than all the others put
    together.

    I have used the " Add or remove features" option and selected "Access"
    by itself without any success.

    I am more than baffled. Your advice will be worth bottling.

    Thanks,

    Robin Chapple

    You could create new user and then try to start acces from that user if this not helps so....
    install clear office.... (complete remove from registry) and only then install :)
