Having problems with Outlook & wish to remove & re-install. I have saved address book, internet settings etc but can't figure out how to remove it from my system - it seems to be everywhere! It is not listed in "add/remove" in Control Panel & the "Office 2000" CDROM does not seem to cover removal of individual progs.

Any advice gratefully received

In 'Add/Remove Programmes' select remove Microsoft Office 2000. This will open a window with the option to Repair the installation / Add or remove features / remove Office. In Add/remove Outlook if you are ure that is what is needed. Would not the repair perhaps be easier?

on this.

Don't uninstall Outlook - it's a superb program (if a little resource greedy). Use the repair tool as explained by beeuuem, that should sort out the problem.

beeuuem of course - sorry.

Thanks but Ive tried the repair option. I am rather worried about the remove option you suggest. I get "preparing to remove MS Office 2000" & abort at this stage as I dont want to do that. Will I get further option before the delete?

The option that you want is the second one 'Add or Remove features' definitely NOT the bottom one which is'Remove Office'. When you open this you are given the choice of removing Word, Outlook or, by opening the drop-down menu next to these, individual features within these.

To clarify the above, when you open 'Add or Remove features' the option to add or remove individual Office features is available.
Don't select 'Remove Office' as it will do just that.
