Download the Office 2000 Eraser from Microsoft's website. There is an eraser for Disc 1 and Disc 2 so grab them both if you have installed content from Disc 2.

http://support.microsoft.com/kb/219423

Run the Office 2000 Eraser(s) and let it delete anything and everything it can find.

Reboot.

The eraser will miss some content on the first pass, so run it again and reboot.

Delete the "C:\Program Files\Office" directory - or alternate location if a custom install was done.

Click Start, Run, and enter Regedit.exe. Delete all entries that reference Office 2000 under the HKEY_Local_Machine\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall group. They will be at the top of the list and be a long sting of characters bracketed by curly braces.

Reboot.
