    I installed Win Fax Pro version v10.02 onto my pentium III PC from what I thought was a shareware CD but turned out to be a pirate CD.
    The program prevented MS Word from running correctly so I tried to uninstall it. Uninstall messages indicated that some traces of the program were still left on the system and needed to be removed manually. The remnants continued stalling MS Word.
    So I reinstalled MS Office but the interference problem from remnants of Win Fax Pro continued.
    I tried re-installing Win Fax Pro and then uninstalling again but it didn’t help.

    Another option is to re-install Windows 98 but I live in a country (PNG) where copyright laws were only recently introduced and when I bought my PC from a dealer 3 years ago it came with an unlicensed operating system and if I want to reinstall Win 98 now I have to buy a brand new copy at quite considerable cost. (Can’t buy secondhand OS ‘s here).

    Can I have some suggestions as to how I can manually remove the offending Win Fax Pro files from the system?

    Incidentally I have run earlier (licensed) versions of Win Fax Pro on my computers in the past and it has caused software / dialup networking problems every single time.
