    removal of interactive training. (XP)

    I have a new laptop and therefore only its generic setup cd. I would like to remove the microsoft interactive training module but I am not sure how to since the laptop didn't come with a Win XP setup disk just the genric setup one and there doesn't seem to be a removal option anywhere obvious. > Thanks

    Please can you say a bit more about the "interactive training module"?

    All I can find is something included with Office XP, the "Office Step-by-Step Interactive Training CD"...

    There is a Step-by-Step Interactive training program (SBSI) in both Windows XP Professional and Windows XP Home, according to <!mskb=309248>Microsoft Knowledge Base Article 309248<!/mskb>.

    The step by step interactive training modules by default are stored in C:WINDOWSHelpSBSITraining
    The uninstall program is stored in that directory and is called ounins32_s.exe

    I just checked and could find no file SBSI in that location nor any other on my C: drive. I would imagine, however, that Tony is correct about the uninstall technique for the program. If, of course, it can be found. <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15>

    At the above link you will find the following:
    MORE INFORMATION
    This document provides additional information about the OEM versions of Microsoft Windows XP Professional Step-by-Step Interactive and Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition Step-by-Step Interactive (both referred to as SBSI) on an NTFS file system partition.

    I have this on my Sony desktop but NOT on my laptop as it is a MS upgrade version of XP not a OEM. Other macines that are OEM have it, but not the ones I upgraded to XP.

    Now running HP Pavilion a6528p, with Win7 64 Bit OS.

    Doc

    Both at work and at home my SBSI directory (and below) is 95.2 MB, and the uninstall file is as Tony indicates.

    There must be huge amounts of Windows stuff lying around on hard disks that people never even come across! (I've never even heard of SBSI!)

    John,

    I had never heard of SBSI before either, and that was why I took a look. I can only guess at why I didn't find it. In reference to Dave's post, this is a Dell OEM configured system that, if you recall, the HD failed after only 3 months and I restored it myself from Dell's disks (Tech support was useless as I don't speak Hindi very well & they don't speak English very well). Perhaps I simply left out what I felt to be irrelevant parts of the install. Although it hardly seems likely that MS would consider any part of their software "irrelevant". <img src=/S/nope.gif border=0 alt=nope width=15 height=15>

    Doc,
    I don't have SBSI either but it looks to me that this only applies to NTFS partitions for some reason. All I've seen so far mention NTFS and having to install a Q307460.exe file to make it work?

    Bob,

    All my partitions are NTFS too (I work on the KISS principal), and you have probably been looking at the same info as I have on the subject. I don't have SBSI or Q307406.exe to make it work, even if I wanted it to. Which I don't !!! I get better information and tutorials right here in the Lounge !!! <img src=/S/groovin.gif border=0 alt=groovin width=21 height=21>

    Doc,
    I agree with you 100%. I'm just surprised that there isn't more information READILY available on this SBSI thing. <img src=/S/scratch.gif border=0 alt=scratch width=25 height=29>

    Bob,

    I'm still pokin' about and did come up with some info. A bit confusing, but it is info on the subject. It's from MS so that explains some of the confusion. You can find the page here with a link to DL Q307460.exe and then give you this rather interesting piece of information<blockquote><hr> Q307460.exe works with the following localized versions of SBSI:
    Brazilian Portuguese
    Dutch
    French
    German
    Italian
    Japanese
    Korean
    Spanish
    Swedish
    Simplified Chinese
    Traditional Chinese

    For additional information about how to apply this update by using the OEM Preinstall Kit (OPK), click the article number below to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:
    309248 ReadMe Addendum to Windows XP Step by Step Interactive (SBSI)<hr></blockquote>

    Which of those 11 languages would you like your copy in ??? <img src=/S/hairout.gif border=0 alt=hairout width=31 height=23>
    Edited to add - The link to MS article 309248 takes you to a page in the KB that explains SBSI in greater detail.

    There seems to be an uninstaller in that folder. While I don't remember coming across this content before, when I started the program just above the uninstaller, it opened to an area I remember researching in Windows Help. I think it is somehow linked in with the help system. Unless you really need the disk space, it might be easier to leave it alone.
