If you are hesitant to update, try this. Stuff your copy of Office. Update and if you have problems, you can delete the updated copy and unstuff the old version and you¹re back in business. If you are afraid of what it will do to your system files, then use a third party application like Super Duper! that has a feature called a Sandbox. Here's a description of how this option works:
A Sandbox is a bootable copy of your system, stored on another hard drive or partition, that shares your personal documents and data with the original. With SuperDuper!, you actually use the Sandbox as your startup volume. You can safely install any system updates, drivers or programs in the Sandbox, without worrying about what might happen to your system. If anything goes wrong, you can simply start up from the original system. SuperDuper! has preserved it in its original, pre-disaster state but all your new and changed personal documents are totally up to date. Within minutes, you're up and running again without having to go through a difficult and time-consuming restore process.
i have got a problem... in the main inbox preview pane i now see a grey bar (part of the gui) in the mail list. when i click on the mails it's hiding, i get error 4362 (meaningless), i have rebuilt etc etc but to no avail... man, entourage was running slow before but at least i didn't have this problem... any solutions...????
According to the Entourage Help Page, error 4362 means that there are problems with the database, which may or may not be fixed by a database rebuild. Try rebuilding the database once more to see if that solves the problem.

thanks michel, i checked that too... turns out the newly rebuilt database was corrupt (?) so i went back to using the old one and now the preview pane works again.. my main aim was trying to get entourage to open quicker... it always used to be so fast until os x 10.4.9 on my mac book pro.. thanks for your help...
