    How to Clean Install Off 2K (Win 98 SE)

    I would like to remove Office 2000 and reinstall it. In the past I have noticed using the Add/Remove Programs in Control Panel always gives me the message that some files need to be removed manually. However, this message hasn't indicated which of the files need to be removed and how. Or at least I haven't noticed. I would appreciate knowing the steps to take including how to manually remove any files. Since I'm a novice where PCs are concerned, I would appreciate it any ideas are spelled out. Thanks.

    Thankfully, I have not had to uninstall Office 2000. However, I have seen that message, and often find a text file in the application directory reporting on what could not be removed. I don't know whether the MS uninstaller works the same way.

    To uninstall Office completely there is a utility that needs to be downloaded from the Microsoft Site. Unfortunately I haven't been able to find it at the Microsoft Site. I uninstalled Office on one of my machines a while ago and downloaded the program but can't find it now. Sorry I can't be more specific.
