Whenever I try to open El, whether through a shortcut of through the exe, it comes up with Windows Installer, then it changes to something about Microsoft Frontpage.

Half way through loading, it asks something about a cd in the cdrom drive. When I click cancel, the windows installer pops up again and starts again.

The only way I know of getting rid of it is through Ctl+Alt+Del and endtask.

I have tried re-installing many times and downloaded the most recent version.

Any ideas on how I can get it to work again?

I'm not really sure but probably with installation of MS Office you replaced standard libraries by EvilLyrics by their different versions.

You may want to try either reinstallin VB runtimes

Or go to your system directory (c:\windows\system32 ?) and delete files
mswinsck.ocx and
mscomctl.ocx

and then run EvilLyrics again (it should re-download and re-register those ocx files)

The second option of deleting the 2 files doesn't work. After deleting them EL give me an error saying that winsomething.osk cannot be found.

I'll try the first one later. Anymore ideas?  

BTW. I this thing you mentioned about office has disturbed some other programs as well. I hope i can get it back.
