OpenOffice 1.0

  Reformat 19:24 07 Mar 2003

I am running Win'98 and recenly installed openoffice 1.0.
I later uninstalled it but for some reason also lost my file association with "MS Word 6"(cannot open any word doc).
Can anyone tell me how to uninstall this app without losing my "MS Word" association or simply how to open a saved word doc after uninstalling openoffice-Is there life after openoffice?
Thanx all.

Shift+right click a Word file. Select "Open With". Select Word from the list presented and ensure that "Always open using ....." is ticked.

right click on a word doc and select 'open with'. Scroll down to Word and tick the 'always use this app for opening' box.
