I tried uninstalling microsoft office student 2007 off my computer cause i dont have a key and want to use microsoft office 2003. It wouldn't let me uninstall it in the add remove programs so i did the dumb thing of finding the folder and just deleting it. When i installed office 2003 everytime i open up microsoft word 2003 or any of the 2003 programs it opens up the microsoft 2007 version and i cant use it cause i dont have a key!!!! How do i completly remove office 2007?

my computer has windows xp home sp 3

You will have to repair the Office2007 by re-installing it. Then, it should be removable via the add -remove control panel, but it does have several components. Did your system come with Office2007 pre-installed? I made the mistake of trying to install an older version of office without fully deleting the Off2007 version and hit the same problem you're having. If you don't have an Office 2007 installation CD, you may try using system restore to roll back your system to before you deleted the Office2007 files. If that restores your Off2007, review the Add-Remove for everything that mentions Office 2007, (activation - compatibility). The pre-installed version throws lots of stuff in, just in case you need it later. Hope this helps.
