I think you are indicating problems with Microsoft OFFICE 2000. You indicated 'Microsoft 2000', which I am interpreting to be Windows2k pro. Also, this could be Microsoft Works 2000.
The error message you are getting is related to running both Works 2000 (or newer) and Word 2000. I would choose one and uninstall the other. There is a plugin conflict with Works into Word that needs to be uninstalled.
If you insist on having both installed, then please read this KBA:
If you have further problems, please post back.
