O2K Maintenance Mode
Now this was a great idea! Office 2000 comes with a Maintenance Mode facility that allows you to perform any of the following:

  • Repair Office 2000
    Use this option to find and fix any errors in the installation.
  • Add or Remove Features
    Use this option to change how a feature is installed and to add or remove Office features.
  • Uninstall Office 2000
    Use this

    The Repair Office 2000 option is definitely a welcome addition to Office. Now we have a quick way of keeping our Office installation intact without the hassle of having to perform a complete reinstall - It will even restore lost or broken shortcuts. But if a reinstall is what you have in mind, you still have that option as well. Simply select the Repair Office option and in the next window, select Reinstall Office. Office 2000 Maintenence Mode can be accessed one of two ways: You can re-run setup.exe from the Office 2000 CD-ROM, or you can go to Control Panel, Add/Remove Programs, and select Microsoft Office 2000. In either case, Office 2000 must already be installed.
