This article was previously published under Q169736


When you run the Microsoft PowerPoint 97 Setup program in Maintenance mode, and you click the Remove All button, some Microsoft PowerPoint 97 files are not removed from your computer.

This behavior occurs because Setup does not remove any files that may be used by other applications.

This article lists which files and folders Microsoft PowerPoint 97 leaves on your hard disk after you remove the program from your computer.


In order to completely remove Microsoft PowerPoint 97 from your computer, manually remove the files and folders listed below. Before you begin, consider the following:

  • If you remove any files that are used by other applications, those applications may not work correctly.
  • Depending on the type of installation you performed when you ran Setup for Microsoft PowerPoint 97 (Typical, Custom, Run from CD-ROM), some of the files listed may not be on your hard drive.
  • Depending on your operating system, some of the files may be installed in your \Winnt\System32 folder instead of the \Windows\System folder.
  • In Microsoft Windows 95 or Windows NT version 4.0 you may need to perform the following steps in order to see all of the files listed:
    1. Open My Computer or start Windows Explorer.
    2. On the View menu, click Options.
    3. Click the View tab.
    4. Click Show All Files, and click to clear the "Hide MS-DOS file extensions for file types that are registered" check box. Click OK.

Following is a list of files and folders installed by Microsoft PowerPoint 97 that remain on your computer when you run Setup and click Remove All.
