Hi All

 

I have xp installed on my desktop and i try to keep it as up to date as possible under the present circumstances.

I have Secunia installed which i use quite often and have not really taken notice of the programmes i have installed

which do not require updates, however on closer inspection i see i have 2 versions of office installed (2002 & 2003)

Can i safely remove the 2002 version without any ill effects or do you advise i leave it alone.

I have no issues at present it's more a clean up desire and to minimise any further possible virus entry points

 

Hope to hear

 

Regards Rozzer

There's nothing mandating both that I know of...the 2002 version is commonly known as Office XP and it still works fine for my needs :).

 

Dealer's choice :), uninstall either.
