Check MS website for an Office remover. I downloaded it from them. You unistall Office then run this utility to clean some of the directories and the registry. I used for Office97, I don't know about 2000. But at MS website they should say something about it.

To do a complete uninstall of Office you need to follow these steps.
1) Uninstall Microsoft Office 97
2) Delete the "C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office" folder.
3) Reboot, logon as administrator,
4) Install and run Office 97 File and Registry Eraser Utility - If prompted remove all shared files and Perform the Aggressive Cleanup
5) Run regclean.exe - Click Fix Errors to prompt RegClean to remove bad registry entries
6) Uninstall Office 97 File and Registry Eraser Utility
7) Reboot

This works great for Office 97 but I haven't tested with 2000 yet.

Good luck

If you unistalled Word 00 then use Office 97's unistall and uninstall it completely, in order to uninstall it you completely you'll need to use it's CD. Re-install Word 00, if a box comes up and say's "Do you want to unistall it? say YES.(It's telling you that you did not unistall it completely the first time.)Then install Word 00. After you have successfully reinstalled Word 00, then re-install Office 98, it's word should ask you if you want to merge with 2000 or overwrite it. This should solve your problem.
