re-installation office 2003

    I removed my version of office standard 2003 from my computer to save some
    space and to allow me to run the defragmenter. However during my attempt to
    reinstall the product the entered product key seems to indicate that the
    software is now only an update and requires a previously installed office
    version. I am positive that I bought a full version of that software package
    and not just an update.

    Any suggestions?

    If you have an upgrade, you need something to upgrade. If you think you
    purchased a full versxion, you need to be able to back that up. Even then I
    suspect you will not get too far. Office 2003 is no longer offered by
    retailers (Amazon may be an exception) since Office 2007 was rolled out 3
    years ago.

    It states on the disk whether its an upgrade
    In any case if you had to uninstall in order to free space to allow win to
    run properly, you should be thinking in terms of a second drive or larger
    existing drive
