    Hi,

    Back again with the Office 2000 problem. I recently fixed a problem on a friends comp, regarding Words toolbar dissapearing. when I fixed it, everytime a office application is run it asks for the origional installation disc. Well she can't find it (why don't people keep em safe, then these problems won't arise). She now wants me to uninstall office and she will purchase a new copy of Microsoft Office 2000, and wants me to install it due to this program being vital to her work, fine I said!!!! I have been worried though, that it may not work as the comp must remember having the old office and it may cause problems installing the new office. Is it as simple as it sounds, just to uninstall then install a totally new copy of office. The programs she want installing are Word, Excel, Power point, Access, Publisher, Outlook I don't want to uninstall then be stuck with it asking for the origional installation disk........And her not being able to use it. She has some special, stuff do do on it tomorrow, all hush, hush won't say what.

    Thanks guy's

    If you uninstall it completely, I don't see why there should be a problem with the computer detecting the old Office. However, if you plan to use the new office cd to replace some old corrupted files, then yes, it may ask you for the old Office cd and besides I don't think that's possible anyways.
