Using the Windows Installer Cleanup Utility for Office installation

    Windows XP Professional, ver 2002, (9.0.6926) SP2 NTFS
    Office 2000 Professional SP3
    Internet Explorer 7.0.5730.11 128 bit cipher strength

    I'm using Shenan Stanley's cleanup procedures, prepping for install of
    Windows XP SP3.

    Confirm answers regarding instructions for using the Windows Installer
    CleanupUtility to remove Office 2000, Office XP or Office 2003.

    (1) Right now, I'm running Office 2000 Professional SP3. I know Microsoft
    article 290301 says the Installer Cleanup Utility it is not going to remove
    the actual Office program; it is only going to remove the installation
    files. To clarify, If I'm going to continue using Office 2000 Professional
    SP3, does it mean I will have to reinstall it from CD again following
    Windows XP Professional SP3? Otherwise, at some point in time, if I were to
    uninstall Office 2000 Pro SP3 to install, say, Office 2007, what does Office
    2000 Pro SP3 use for the files to uninstall itself?

    To uninstall Office 2000 completely you will need the Office 2000 install CD. No way
    around that with the exception of a reformat
