Document not registered?

I recently re-installed Word 97 after updating and Xp Home machine
with SP2. Now every time I open a new document I get a warning :-

"This document could not be registered. It will not be possible to
create links from this document to other documents"

I don't ever want to create ;links from or to any other documents. How
can I convince Word of this?

Thank you for the information. I rather suspect that it's another
little feature of SP2 which I installed a while ago!

Well I tried all the options, the Setup /y. the Remove All, and the
Reinstall, none of that made any difference. I guess I'll have to
change to a newer version of Word. I have one but didn't want to learn
to jump through yet more hoops!

Try uninstalling Office 97, and then reinstalling it, but choose "Custom
installation" and set the Web Authoring Tools to "not available" in the
setup options.
