I'm trying to uninstall all remnants of MS Office XP Standard for Students and Teachers from my computer. This program was installed several years ago on my son's computer at school and also this one at home. Just recently after losing the Spell Checker on Outlook Express I found I no longer had the use of Word, Excel etc.
First question is, does anyone know why I would lose these functions?? I was wondering if it was because the program had a time limit on the second computer or is that to naive? Anyway, I want to install MS Office Home and Student 2007 but I would like to get the old program off first. When I try to remove it from the Add or Remove Program I get this message:
"The patch package could not be opened. Verify that the patch package exists and that you can access it, or contact the application vendor to verify that this is a valid Windows Installer patch package".
I have the Windows Home XP operating system.
