Default How can I un-install MS Office 97?

I recently built a computer and installed an old version of MS Office 97 on it. Now I've purchased "MS Office 2007 Enterprise" and would like to completely un-install Office 97 before attempting the install of my new Office 2007 Enterprise.



But, everytime I go to the Control Panel and "Add/Remove Programs" and hit the remove button to remove Office 97, I'm told to insert the Office 97 disk. When I do this, all I get are a bunch of icons on a new page which makes no sense at all to me.....and none of the icons say anything about removing or un-installing Office 97.

Could someone in the know please tell me how to get MS Office 97 off of my new computer so I can install my new MS Office 2007 Enterprise?

I'm running Windows XP Home with SP2 if it matters. Thanks to all.

One very simple solution is that just run the MS Office 97 setup again. When it runs on a machine that already have MS Office 97 installed on it, it simply show you a screen with options either to Add/Remove feature or Uninstall it completely. This way you can uninstall it completely.

Regards,
