    This is probably a dumb question, but I'm gonna ask it anyway!
    Is it possible to uninstall certain elements of Office 2000, and only keep
    what I use? (i.e. Word, Excel)
    Since there are no patches available for the security vulnerabilities, I'm
    hoping to limit the threat by removing the elements I don't use.

    Run setup, custom install and tell it to uninstall what you don't want.
    Rest will stay OK.

    Your underlying presumption is incorrect.

    Here, in order, are the O2K security patches I have installed:

    o2ksr1a.exe (on my O2K install disk)
    sp2upd.exe
    O2kSp3.exe
    office2000-KB947361-FullFile-ENU.exe
    office2000-kb920906-fullfile-enu.exe
    office2000-KB943990-FullFile-ENU.exe
    office2000-KB944425-FullFile-ENU.exe
    office2000-KB958435-FullFile-ENU.exe

    They are all available at the microsoft site, and I would install them. My
    experience was that a Google search is the best way to find them. On-site
    search was useless, but maybe that has changed.

    Not a dumb question at all. It's been quite a while since I used O2000, but
    I think you can run Setup, choose a custom install, then change the features
    you want to remove from "Installed on my computer" to "Not available" (or
    similar wording).
