Upgrade to ACT 2010 causes as many new problems as old version.

Earlier this year I finally gave up on trying to re-install Version 9 and upgraded to ACT 2010. The installation went fine until I opened up MS Office Outlook and Word. I have MS Office 2003 running over Windows XP. After the install of the new ACT 2010 the spell check on both MS programs refuses to work and I cannot back up my Outlook PST files. Further, whenever I open MS Word I have to ignore the following message about five or six times,


"The function you are attempting to run contains macros or content that requires macros language support. When this software was installed you chose not to install support for macros or controls."


Really? I dont remember that, and I dont even really know what it means. None of the tips in the linked help panel solved a thing. I am now tempted to reinstall my MS Office suite but am worried that I lose the email history accumulated since my last backup, and I am also somehow sure that the new ACT install will somehow compromise the re-install.


Other problems have yet to surface, but I somehow feel them lurking


Help please.
