Method 3: Remove and then reinstall Office 2003
To remove and then reinstall Office 2003, follow these steps.

Note Because there are several versions of Microsoft Windows, the following steps may be different on your computer. If they are, see your product documentation to complete these steps.
1. Insert the Office 2003 CD in the CD drive.
2. Click Start, and then click Control Panel.
3. Click Add or Remove Programs.

11. Remove the Office 2003 CD from the CD drive.

When you install Office 2003 from the Office 2003 CD or from an image of the Office 2003 CD, Setup installs the Office Source Engine (Ose.exe) system service to copy the required installation files to the local computer. After Setup.exe reads the Setup settings file, Setup.exe performs the following actions:• Determines the drive that has the most available space on the local computer
• Verifies that the user has administrative rights
• Installs the Office Source Engine
For more information about the Office Source Engine, see one of the following Microsoft Office 2003 Editions Resource Kit resources:• In the printed version of the Office 2003 Editions Resource Kit, see page 23.
• In the online version of the Office 2003 Editions Resource Kit, visit the following Microsoft Web site:

Error 3:
You may have to try the instructions given here:

When you try to install an update for the .NET Framework 1.0, 1.1, or 2.0, you may receive Windows Update error code "0x643" or Windows Installer error code "1603"

Basically, it involves un-installing .NET Framework Version 1.1 Service pack

Then download and use (Run as Administrator) the Windows Installer CleanUp
Utility, and remove all references to .NET Framework Version 1.1 Service
pack 1 (only!).

Then reinstall .NET Framework Version 1.1 Service pack 1:

Then run Windows Update again, to install KB929729.
