When your in an office application preferably Microsoft Word, when the assistant pops up right-click on it then click on "Choose Assistant" then if you choose an assistant from that options it should stick with that assistant through out your time using office.

If the Office Assistant doesn't come up at any time all you need to to do is click on "Help" on the top tool bar then click on "Show The Office Assistant"

There are many assistants to choose from, enjoy.

This is most likely occuring because you are using Outlook 2003 with Office XP. If you have upgraded Outlook without upgrading the rest of the Office components, you can solve this by upgrading Office or downgrading Outlook.

Microsoft outlook menu missing

The "Out of Office Assistant" is a Microsoft Outlook feature that allows users to send automatic replies to people who send emails to them when they are out of the office or otherwise unavailable.
This feature is only available to Outlook users with Microsoft Exchange Server email accounts. Most personal email accounts through home Internet service providers do not support this feature.
If your Out of Office Assistant is missing from your "Tools Menu," it may be disabled, turned off or not installed.

Confirm that the Out of Office Assistant is installed and turned on.
To access the "Out of Office Assistant" menu command, you must be in mail view. It is not accessible from "Calendar," "Tasks," "Notes" or "Journals."
From your Inbox, click "Tools," "Options," the "Other" tab and select "Advanced Options."
Click "Add-in Manager" and select the "Exchange Extensions Commands" check box.
Try to access your "Out of Office Assistant."
If the Exchange Extensions Commands" check box is not available in the "Add-in Manager," proceed to Next Step .
Check that the "Exchange Extensions Commands" are enabled. Click "Help," then "About Microsoft Office Outlook" and select "Disabled Items."
If "Exchange Extensions Commands" is set to "Disabled," select it and click "Enable."
Attempt to use the "Out of Office Assistant" command. If it's still not available, proceed to Next Step .

Install "outex.ecf." From your "Tools" menu, click "Options" and select "Add-in Manager."
Then click "Install" and select "outex.ecf."
Click "Open."

Try to use the "Out of Office Assistant."
If you are still unable to use the "Out of Office Assistant," contact your system administrator.

Default Mail Client

Have you ever had Outlook configured correctly to access your email server and download messages?
It sounds like you have set outlook as the default email client but you have not yet configured the email account settings within outlook so that outlook knows how to connect to your mail server online.
Please refer to this link or this link for instructions on how to do this.
Check the programs tab of Internet Options in control panel and make sure Outlook appears as the default email client.

If you follow the instructions in this tutorial you should be able to enter your administrative account and ensure that the Office Diagnostics program runs with sufficient privileges...I believe that will correct this error message...
If not, If you have correctly configured your email accounts within outlook and outlook is set as the default, please see this posting and the recommended change to correct the situation.

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.
If I've managed to answer your question or solve a problem, please take just a moment to rate this post....thanks!

Microsoft Outlook

be sure you installed all available updates including service packs for both OS and office 2003 suite. Did you try the "Detect and Repair" feature in Help? If you just added some memory lately, then it might be the cause. I hope you clean your system from spywares and viruses too.
