    Ok first off. I have windows xp sp2. I can no longer get updates from the windows update page. I can download them fine but once the windows installer tries to install them I get erros..I have IE6.0 and also cant update to 7.0...I cannot figure out why.

    Also I'm trying to delte Ms-Office XP from my computer and no matter what I try I cannot..It wont leave no matter what I try. Can someone tell me how I can get this out of my system

    Thanks In Advance
    Rich

    valis is correct, you should have Microsoft Office XP Small Business listed in your Add or Remove Programs. It is a separate program installed and should be listed there.
