I am running Office 2000 on a Win XP machine and wish to remove it.  After removing Office and then running the eraser2k utility I get a message that the utilitiy is not compatable with the version of Windows running.  The Microsoft documentation indicates that eraser2k had not been certified for Win XP, only Win 2000. Is there a utility that will remove Office 2000 from a Windows XP computer?

    p912s: This is an Office 2003 Resourse Kit. Will Installing it interfere with anything in Office 2000? Will the removal utility contained therein work without a hitch on removing Office 2000?

    Accepted Solution

    All you're downloading is a stand-alone removal tool. I've used it to remove both Office 97 & 2000 on client machines.

    An excerpt from the link...

    The Office Removal Wizard can detect and remove Office 95, Office 97, Office 2000, and Office XP, as well as Microsoft Office Multilingual User Interface Packs (MUI Packs) and individual Office applications. A companion file list allows you to review and edit the detailed list of files that can be removed. The Removal Wizard does not remove documents or other user files from the computer.
