    People,

    Microsoft Office & Microsoft Works . . . are they really necessary? I guess my basic question is, does Microsoft Works 7.0 have to be installed on my PC for Microsoft apps to function. Can I simply have Microsoft Word & maybe one or two other MS apps loaded & functional on their own.

    Thanks,

    mark4man

    BTW - Works 7.0 came loaded on my PC (Dell 8250); & I was hoping to trim the fat.

    Ditch MS Works. Office will provide everything you need.
    Some apps (Spelling Checker in OE as an exaple) utilise Word functions, but nothing will need Works as far as I know.

    Uninstall Works and any part of Office you don't want
