    :confused:
    Here goes! Running Windows XP. Had office '95. Puchased Office '07. Loaded Office '07 thinking (or not) it was an inline upgrade as in it would upgrade what I already was running ('95) Ended up having two versions of everything- '95 and '07. Uninstalled '07. Trying to uninstall '95. Go to control panel>change or remove software programs. System populates listing of programs. My '95 lists each individual program included in the package ie. word, excel, etc. etc. etc. separately. Not listed as '95 Office in one fell swoop. So, I have clicked on '95 word (for example)>remove>Prompted to put in my disk. I do so, disk prompts me to put in my product code. I do. It trys to INSTALL the program again. Can't figure out to uninstall it all '95 office.

    Also:
    I'm told my existing files will be stored in "My Documents" and I will be able to convert them to "07.

    Also:
    Outlook is in my XP right? I don't want to loose everything I have in there.

    Summary: How do I uninstall '95?!

    Help...:eek:

    Yes it shows up in the control panel as individual programs with a'95 after each title. When I uninstalled '07, it was in the control panel as Office 2007 and all I had to do was click on it to go to remove it. The '95 lists the programs included in the '95 package. Maybe it is supposed to. I don't know. I just noticed the difference in how '95 and '07 were listed in the control panel.
