Can't Uninstall Office Professional 2003

  1. Hi,

    I'm now running Office Ultimate 2007 but still have Office Professional 2003 showing in the Add/Remove programs utility (no sign of it in 'Programe Files'). When I try to remove it I am asked to provide a location of 'MAINSP2ff.MSP'. I have no idea what this is or where it is but am unable to proceed with the uninstall. This may be the cause of a further problem in Word 2007 (a UK English edition) where the spell check utility will not work. Again when I try to run it I an asked for the location of the same file 'MAINSP2ff.MSP

    Any ideas greatly apreciated!

    Rgds, Paul

    So, did you try a 'search' for 'MAINSP2ff.MSP?

    Yes, searched the whole computer and nothing found.


    Problem now sorted using MS Install Cleanup utility. Thanks for taking the time to try and help.

    Rgds, Paul
