Hello Experts.  I have a computer that had Microsoft Office 97.  Beginning yesterday, when I try to open Excel I get the "install popup" that says it is trying to install Front Page.  Of course the CD isn't in the drive, so it doesn't install.  After some investigation, I noticed that Add/Remove programs shows the only Office Suite installed is "Microsoft Office XP with Front Page"--which I have never installed on this machine.  I suspect a virus, but have not found it yet.  I am would like to know if I uninstall the "Office XP" if the 97 version will be there...or what will happen?  I've also contlipated doing a restore (although I don't particularly like using System Restore).  Any ideas, suggestions, and/or advice would be greatly appreciated!
