I am having problems running it as I uninstalled Outlook 2007 and and I managed to install 2003 after having registry errors saying I did not have permission to modify the registry even though the account was admin.
Now it says when I try to load Outlook 03 mapi32.dll is corupt or the wrong version. I have ran fixmap32.dll, remaned the one in that obscure folder which I now can't remember (1033 was a sub-folder) and re-installed Outlook 03 multiple times. I can't uninstall Office 07 as Its saying on that one I cant modiy the registry (it was something very close to UNKNOWN/.tiff/persistant handler.

Quick help would be much appreciated on the OS is XP home.

Office 2003 and 2007 both want to be the dominant install on the machine. You will especially know this when you open up word 2003, then 2007, then 2003... it runs the installer again.

Anyway, the way you would have gotten it to work was to install 2003, run outlook 2003, then uninstall office 2007.

I would have to say, you have screwed your system quite completely. If you are truely an admin, and are getting access denied errors, either permissions have been explicitly changed where it shouldn't have been, or files have been deleted explicitly that shouldn't have been (perhaps quarantined after being infected), or your file system is corrupted, or possibly, you have some bad sectors in a really unfortunate place.

Either way, you need to find the culprit rather than just trying to sweep it under the rug. I suggest regmon and filemon to see what the uninstaller is trying to do.

Its only one error and its the same error between each install, so I highly doubt its bad sectors or anything nasty like that.
