    Hi,
    I have Microsoft Works preinstalled on my pc. I have a an HP Pavillion a1650e with a 140 gig "c" drive. It takes up 240 megs on the "c" drive. I never use it. I also have Microsoft Office 2000 which I installed myself. Is it safe to delete the Office Works program to save space on my c drive? Also can it be deleted through the add/remove programs?
    Thanks for any help.

    As far as I know, you should be able to uninstall MS Works through the Add or Remove Programs control panel.

    You may have to perform a repair install of Office 2000 after uninstalling MS Works because Works and Office share some components.

    Documents won't be affected, nor will your personal settings for Word.

    just one more question and I thank you for all your help
    What is a repair install ? I'm not familiar with that? Do I have to reinstall Office 2000? And how do you do a repair if neccassary?

    There are two ways to perform a repair install. The result is the same. You will probably have to insert your Office 2000 CD at some point.

    1) From within any Office application, select Help | Detect and Repair.
    2) Activate the Add/Remove Programs control panel, double-click Microsoft Office 2000. The next window should have an option to repair the installation.
