    I am running WinXP Home SP3. MS Word 2007 is installed and operating OK, but I would rather use the old 2003 version.

    Is there anyway and anywhere I can get a down loadable version of 2003? (Preferably FREE) Is it necessary to Remove 2007 before downloading another version, AND if so, HOW do I remove JUST the MS Word 2007 section of the MS Office suite currently installed.?

    There is no legal free version of any MS office product. If you do acquire Word 2003 you should completely uninstall Office 2007, install Word 2003, re-install Office 2007. MS Office products should always be installed from oldest version to the newest version.

    Have a look on eBay for a cheap legit Office 2003. Otherwise, learn to live with and use 2007.

    You can download the Search Commands add on that will help find where specific Word functionality now resides in Word 2007at:

    Watch the demo on that page to see how it works.
