    Unless you have problem with insufficient memory, it's usually easier to leave the full Office program in your computer, and just use what you want. Yes, you can uninstall Works (and I would do so). Go to Control Panel/Add & Remove Programs, and it should be listed for proper removal. .Net may need the earlier installations for 2.0 to work properly, so you might not want to clean them out. Welcome to Tech Guy Forums. Let us know if we have helped you. If not, we can try again! :)

    Perhaps someone else will jump in with a reply to your second inquiry. Meanwhile, go to Control Panel/Add or Remove Programs and scroll down to Microsoft Office. You should be able to safely remove it, and then do a special reinstall from the CDs, selecting only the parts that you want, such as Word (I'm guessing that's the one you're interested in, to replace Works).

    There are free programs you can use to clean up your hard drive. I highly recommend CCleaner -- it should be run on a regular basis, like weekly, to get rid of temp files, internet cache, and other things you don't need cluttering up your computer.
