how can I get rid of it

  lindy 17:03 15 Apr 2004

Somehow or other,I've installed OpenOffice 1.01 onto my system and it's amended all of my Microsoft word etc. I don't like it and want rid of it however 'remove software' doesn't work.

Any suggestions

Most software comes with its own 'Uninstaller' program.

This should have been your first move before trying the XP standard remove program as it is notorious at leaving crap behind.

If you can still see OpenOffice on your list of programs under Start/All Programs there might be a sub directory with the uninstaller in it. Run it if you can.

If you can't then get hold of a copy of Ashampoo Uninstaller software. You can sometimes find it on the cover disks of magazines.

Or how about:

Add/remove programs in control panel?
