I currently have office XP (2003) on my Windows XP pro PC.
I have just purchased a copy of Office Proffessional 2007. Should I remove my original Office package, or just overload it.
Which is best?

Remove it

It seems logical to remove it, however will this leace all of my word,Excel files ect usable?

If it all goes wrong, can I restore the PC to yesterdays image using XPs restore feature?

During the install you should be asked if you want to remove the old version. I recommend that you do. All your existing documents will remain intact and usable.

If I were to do any work in Office 2007, ie Powerpoint presentation,word documents, will this still open in word/excel XP or Windows 2000?

You can either Save As and save as the old format or use the compatibility pack click here
