Re: removing microsoft works 2000

Yes, you can remove it, if you do not need it.
It will have no effect on the memory, however it will give you more hard disk space. Run defrag afterward.

Download Microsoft Essentials and removed several times. It appears in the taskbar but when the computer is turned off and then on again, it has disappeared from the desktop. It states that it is already...

If you can not uninstall Microsoft Security Essentials normally, press "Win+R" then type regedit and press enter, find the key HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\Microsoft Security Essentials and delete it. Then re-install the program and uninstall it and you'll remove Microsoft Security Essentials from your computer completely by this way.

Trying to load Avast anti- virus & get an error message can't "configure set-up"

The most current version of Avast is 5.0 and you can download the free version by Clicking Here. If you decide to go with the newer version I would recommend making sure that the 4.6 is removed.If you have issues removing 4.6 use the cleaning tool, you can find the removal tool by Clicking Here
Do you receive this error after you install Avast or after when you try and launch?
Do you have Microsoft Anti-Spyware installed?
Try running the install during a cleanboot:
Make sure that you have removed any setup files from the previous failed install, using the removal tool posted above if needed. Start the System Configuration Utility
  1. Click Start, click Run, type msconfig, and then click OK.
  2. The System Configuration Utility dialog box is displayed
  3. Select the Start Up tab
  4. Make note of any programs you may have already turned off, once you have done that select disable all
  5. Now Select the Services tab
  6. Make sure you check off Hide All Microsoft Services before making any changes
  7. Take note of any services you have turned off and then select disable all
  8. Click Apply and then OK
  9. Reboot the system and try installing 4.6 again

My computer is infected with a worm. I think it is named ''Total Security''. Andy suggestions? Can you advise how to remove it. I cannot open any programs.

Hi, Andy.

Reboot your system and continually press F8.

Choose Safe Mode

Login to your account or Administrator

Download, install and run Spybot ( and MalwareBytes (

If still a problem, I'd suggest accessing System Restore and roll back your system to an earlier date. Just note that your data will be rolled back as well.

Hope this helps.

Microsoft office basic edition 2003

Try using the Office 2003 removal tool. Just download the Office 2003 Editions Resource Kit at this link. It's called ork.exe:

After it's installed followed these directions:

To locate the tool, click the Start button, point to Programs, point to Microsoft Office, point to Microsoft Office Tools, point to Microsoft Office Resource Kit, and then click Removal Wizard.

Then follow the on screen instructions that will walk you through the removal. After Office is completely removed, restart and try to reinstall.

Hope this helps!

Microsoft .NET Framework 1.1

You cannot install the Microsoft .NET Framework 1.1 because the NET Framework 2 is already installed. The NET Framework 2 is the latest version of Microsoft NET Framework. I think you can remove the latest Framework in the Add/Remove Programs from the Control Panel. Then restart your computer and install the old version. But my advice is, just let the latest NET Framework remain and don't uninstall it.
