Removing Office 97 from Vista


T

A prosperuous 2008 to you.

I've just done a full system restore of Vista.
I wanted to install Office 2007, but when i did learned the version I
had was an upgrade version and wouldn't install.

I installed a version of Office 97 which I had been using on XP last
year. I didn't think it would function in Vista, but thought I needed
it to be the software from which Office 2007 would upgrade itself.

The upgrade didn't work.

So I want to Uninstall Office 97.

It won't uninstall via the standard Uninstall method uisng Vista.
It won't uninstall when I put the Office 97 disk back in (hoping to
use any uninstall code that it might contain).

I'd be very grateful for any suggestions how I can get Office 97 off
Vista and out of my computer.

Many Thanks.
Tim

Try doing a reinstall then uninstall if you have the Office 97 install disk.

If that does not work.

Open back the Run Command
type in MSCONFIG
OK
Under 'General' (tab) > Startup select 'Diagnostic Startup'
Click 'OK'
Restart when prompted

Try uninstalling the Office 97 Professional then

Open back the Run Command
type in MSCONFIG
OK
Under 'General' (tab) > Startup select 'Normal Startup'
Click 'OK'
Restart when prompted
