    Installation question.

    When I installed Office 2003, a total of 288,981K of "Office Setup Files" appeared on my hard drive the first time I did a scan disk cleanup. Is this where the Office Setup Files belong? Is their presence there slowing the performance of my computer? If these files belong somewhere else, where would that be?

    Many thanks from a first time user.

    Has your computer slowed? Often the tools that show where these things are
    are confusing and worrying to the novice user.

    They are in the right place if you want to detect and repair the office apps
    or be sure of a quality un-install if this should be necessary.

    Do they have to be there? No, but they will do little harm either providing
    you still have plenty of disk space and sometimes trying to find the CD when
    you're in a hurry, can be a pain.

    Up to you

    Thanks for the prompt reply Nick. Just because they showed up on a disc scan in the same place as temporary internet files made me think they were slowing me down. Can't really say that their presence slows my performance.

    Once again, thanks. And you guys have a great forum!!
