If it says are you sure you want to remove this, click cancel
If it says, repair, remove, modify, click modify to look for products with ticks, remove all the ticks but the one for Word, click apply

Items in blue which are underlined are clickable to give more information about the process
Click start then run, type prefetch then press enter, click edit then select all, right click any file then click delete, confirm delete
Click start, all programmes, accessories, system tools to run disc clean up, then from system tools, run disc defragmenter.
Click start then run, type sfc /scannow then press enter, you need the XP CD and Windows File Protection will show a blue onscreen progress bar, when the bar goes, reboot
Download and install Tune Up 2006 Trial
Run Tune Up Disc Clean Up
Run Tune Up Registry Clean Up
Click Optimize and Improve to run Reg Defrag, which will take a few minutes and need a reboot. You should disable the antivirus programme to run this
Check the anti virus is running after the reboot
After the reboot, click optimize then system optimizer to optimize the computer, select computer with an internet connection from the drop down menu, this also requires a reboot
After the reboot, click optimize then system optimizer to accelerate downloads, select the speed just above your actual connection speed, this requires a reboot

Try Microsoft Update
Okay since i last posted i had problems actually getting updates to work, that problem has been solved but now im having the same problem as the chap who is saying that those 3 updates wont install??????
The exact same 3 updates have been popping up on my computer for 2/3 days now and when i try to install them they fail?? but the thing is i have office 2003 but still they wont download!!!
I am going to try what keith has suggested to the other person and if it does not work then it could be a problem maybe with the installation/updates.

ok i tried that and i got two choices remove or change when i click on change it brings up a screen with three more choices, add or remove features, reinstall or repair, and uninstall
Choose add or remove features then untick the problem ones, make sure you leave the ones you can use ticked

i know HP does if it does use it and you wont lose any data or programs you just update the computer
all programs just need to activated but you should get your free trials back and your data in those programs are there
