I made a dumb mistake a couple of years ago by installing someone else's copy
of Word-97 (only Word-97). I now want to install my own new copy of Office Home
and Student 2007, but first need to uninstall the old Word-97 program. But the disc
is long gone. What are my options in order to delete this "dinosaur."??

Have you looked in the add/ remove program group?

Yes, I initially tried the add/remove function, but got a message telling me to insert the
program disc...which I do not have. Thanks for your interest in my problem.

Leave it to MS.

This will get tricky because the first link gives info. You need to click a link to get to the next. Then another link, etc. Anyways, lets start.

Microsoft Office 97 Removal Wizard is found HERE. This is info on the tool only.
Click the link in the first link, or go to HERE. On this page you are told its in the Office resource kit.
Now you have to click the link to get the resource kit.

Resource Kit: RESOURCE KIT. 10th one down labeled ORK.exe

Wow was that work. Were not done because there is a registry cleanup.
REGISTRY ERASER.

THIS IS THE FIRST LINK THAT STARTED ALL OF THE ABOVE.

I hope this wasn't too confusing, but I kinda got lost in the MS links.
